Nothing gives a more relaxing and soothing feeling than the feel and sound of water falling in your surroundings.

If you don’t like the grass or you don’t want to have a high-maintenance backyard landscape that needs to be watered and mowed regularly, skip the grass.
Yes, you read it right!! Having grass is not necessary for your backyard landscape. You can swap it with pebble, concrete or wooden flooring or a mixture and with grass. And you can always add the touch of greenery by adding pots or vines on the walls.
