Slate Urns, Spilling Bowls and Gurgling Natural Basalt Columns are some of the ways to bring the sound of water to your yard to attract birds and butterflies.

Pondless & Disappearing Waterfalls
This to many can appear as a miracle oasis sprung from nowhere. A disappearing waterfall, when constructed with nature in mind can be, not just the focal point of your yard but the point of envy of all of your neighbours. Water flows over the falls, splashes the rocks, and invites wildlife from miles around to disappear into the ground only to flow over the falls once again. You can spend hours just "Being" next to a natural babbling brook. This is an oasis without the drive to the conservation area. It's your own private waterfall.
The beauty and sound of moving water
The noise of the city can be, at times, unnatural and far from peaceful. By adding the sound of splashing and moving water you counter the unnatural noise with the soothing sound of nature. It's like having a "Nature Sounds" machine in your outdoor space.
