Suppose that business is going well, and you want to find a way to really give back to your customers. Or perhaps business has been lagging, and you need something that will make you stand out over your competitor across the street. Installing a water feature is a great solution for either of these situations. A new water feature doesn’t just benefit your customers, it also benefits your employees and yourself! Read on to find out why.
The biggest deciding factor behind the choice to install a water feature is the meditative and calming effect it has on the surrounding environment. For centuries, Buddhist monks included water fountains in their gardens as a source of meditation. The sounds of water promote relaxation and aid sleep. Having a beautiful water feature on your property is a great way to create a calming environment. Customers may even seek out your business because they prefer the calming atmosphere. Employees can recharge by the fountain during lunch breaks. Having your business associated with relaxation may even affect customers’ first impressions and predispositions prior to even entering your building.
Another benefit of having a fountain on your property is that you can support local wildlife! Birds in particular. Especially in urban environments, clean water is hard to find. A fountain is essentially a babbling brook where birds can gather to cool off and feel safe. In fact, you’re likely to see a lot of birds at a fountain that you wouldn’t ordinarily see at a bird feeder, including thrushes, robins, and orioles. Imagine, not only do you get to watch a relaxing fountain, but you get to do some bird watching as well!
Purify Your Surroundings
Not only can customers benefit from the natural relaxing atmosphere created by water fountains, but they can also feel a physical benefit as well. Water fountains act as natural air purifiers by attracting dust and allergens and then removing them from the environment. Flowing water also produces negative ions, which scientific theory suggests can increase serotonin production, alleviate depression, and boost energy.
