These luxurious fountains can be added to your home at extremely low cost if you use natural materials such as stone, driftwood and plants, and do the work yourself (DIY). Get creative with recycled materials such as chipped pots from yard sales and you could slash the cost to almost free.
In addition to beautifying your yard, water features such as fountains and small ponds are very practical. Water features cool and humidify the air (important in hot and arid regions), and attract wildlife such as birds and butterflies. This is important because birds will eat thousands of mosquitoes and other insects. Water features with small fish are very effective at eliminating mosquito larvae. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in the water and the fish eat the eggs. Water features with flowing water provide a pleasing, relaxing sound.
