Aquascape water features provide soothing sights and sounds that help you relax and de-stress in today's busy world. Examples of water features in the landscape include ecosystem ponds, Pondless® Waterfalls, and a variety of fountains from bubbling urns to fountain rocks and more. The therapeutic effects of water in the landscape help to lower blood pressure and improve physical and mental health.
"Hospital patients who have a view of natural landscapes recover faster from surgery and require less pain medication. In addition, heart rate, blood pressure, and other measures return to normal levels more quickly when people view natural rather than urban landscapes after a stressful experience."

"Our patients and their families find peace and tranquility when visiting our beautiful water features. We receive a great deal of positive feedback on the addition of the water gardens to our facility. Even the staff and board members have found the water features to be beneficial for relieving stress and improving their daily outlook."
Nancy Vance, Executive Director, Living Well Cancer Resource Center
"As landscape architects and experts in healing garden design, we specify water features in most of our projects. We've had great success with using the Aquascape product line. Their natural pond systems fit perfectly into our design solutions and offer our clients a sustainable solution that adds a positive distraction to the healthcare environment. We also design water features in unusual locations like roof decks. Aquascape's sculptural water displays add a nice balance to the healing garden aesthetic."
