Water Features Provide a Peaceful Way to Reflect During Busy Holidays

Posted in News -

As we enter the holiday season, it’s time to be thankful, but easy to get stressed over the extra demands the holidays create.

Fortunately, finding a peaceful spot to escape and relax, even if just for a few blissful hours, can be as simple as visiting a nearby retail entertainment center, golf course, resort, zoo or aquarium, thanks to their captivating water features.

Developers integrate water features into their properties because they add value and make their property stand out from the competition. Visitors like water features because they add visual interest while creating sounds that sooth even the most harried soul. During the busy holiday season, water features also lure visitors away from the crowd and provide a place for them to momentarily forget about their holiday obligations.

A skilled and experienced design/build company, such as Outside the Lines, can incorporate water features into any environment, whether it’s in the middle of a bustling city in Florida, the California desert, or the South African wilderness.

Here are some water features worthy of reflection during the holidays:

Walnut Creek Veterans Memorial Plaza, Walnut Creek, California. Veteran’s Day isn’t considered part of the Christmas season, but our freedom to celebrate holidays in the manner we choose wouldn’t be possible without the dedication and sacrifices of our U.S. veterans. This water feature has shallow pools of water on grade that were intertwined with granite pathways. The effect is stunning – it’s almost like walking on water.

Blackhawk Plaza, Danville, California. It’s easy to get weighted down with bags of merchandise from all the shops at Blackhawk Plaza. But once shoppers step away from the stores, they’ll see a variety of water features, ranging from organic pools, streams and waterfalls to sculptural architectural fountains. Those bags feel lighter already!

Four Seasons Hotel, Westlake Village, California. For the ultimate escape during the holidays, serenity seekers head for this resort. The rockwork and water features, including a koi pond and lush waterfall garden, encourage inner peace.

Boca Raton Resort & Club, Boca Raton, Florida. What better way to escape from the chaos of the holidays than to play a round of golf in the warmth of Florida? This golf course features stunning water features of waterfalls, ponds and streams that twist and turn as much as the Florida swamp.

National Aviary Penguin Point Exhibit, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Perhaps nothing is more peaceful than watching animals glide through the water. At this penguin exhibit, visitors watch African Penguins swim among artificial rockwork in an unbelievably believable habitat.

Outside the Lines can create water features that enhance and add value to your property, no matter how complicated the project. From computer choreographed show fountains and cascading waterfalls to lazy rivers and meandering streams, we’ll make sure your water feature is just what you had in mind.
