Benefits of a Water Feature in Your Greenhouse

November 20, 2014

A water feature is an excellent addition to any greenhouse as it benefits both plants and people. A fountain, waterfall, or pond is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Ponds can be homes to fish and allow you to grow various aquatic plants, such as water lilies and elephant ears. Waterfalls and fountains can help to purify the air by removing unwanted allergen particles.

Water features also add to the humidity of the greenhouse, which is desirable in drier climates and for plants that require a higher humidity level than the geographical location provides.

The sound of running water adds to the peaceful atmosphere of the greenhouse, providing a relaxing space for you and your family. The constant noise provided by a water feature aids in relaxation and concentration by masking undesirable noises, such as dogs barking or traffic.
