Depending on where you live, you might be facing an issue of noise that leaves you seriously considering buying stock in an earplug manufacturer. All joking aside, however, noise really can be one of the major downfalls of any home, no matter how beautiful it is. Fortunately, there are some simple landscape noise reduction solutions that will not only give you more peace and quiet, but also enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of your property.
A Sound Solution
So just what are the options? For some landscape noise reduction ideas that you might not have considered, seek out the advice and guidance of a local landscape designer; many are well-versed in the tricks of the trade when it comes to creating solutions for sound reduction, and they’ll be able to provide you with beautiful designs and plans that will suit your needs and give you a yard that you can actually enjoy.
A Natural Choice
Among the most common landscape noise reduction solutions is with the landscaping itself. Grass is naturally absorbent, so consider your lawn an asset when you’re planning the layout of your yard. Planting trees and shrubs that are lush and dense with foliage will absorb noise into leaves and branches before they make their way to the inner sanctum of your sanctuary; and you’ll have the added benefit of their beauty to help quiet your soul.
If you hire a landscape maintenance company for your landscape noise reduction project, they’ll also have some great ideas for hardscape design that will work wonders in alleviating your hearing heartaches. Partitions made of fiberglass or corrugated metal are flexible and naturally bounce sound waves back to their source; but even adding a solid wall made of concrete, stone, or brick will create a visual barrier onto your property and give you noise reduction if you drape them in vines or some other type of foliage.
If you enjoy the soothing babble of a waterfall or fountain, they can be an ideal distraction from the less than ambient sounds coming from the area around you. The size and type will, of course, be dictated by the size of your property; but even smaller scale water features can offer the perfect amount of sound to mask the noise of daytime traffic or whatever other issues are assaulting your ears. Even if you aren’t quite sold on the idea of adding a water feature, however, natural elements like trees and large shrubs once again prove their inherent worth¬¬ every time the wind blows.
