Lawn & Garden Special Advertising Section Let Your Landscape Speak (Literally) to who you Are By Tom Raemisch Spring has sprung in southern Wisconsin, and now it's time to think about enhancing your existing landscaping! Let your yard speak to who you are with the sights and sounds of a water feature. Add a bubbling urn for visual interest or a pond with wa- terfalls to complete your outdoor sanctu- ary and make it your own. The possibilities are endless (or pondless). Build for you and beyond: According to Smart Money Magazine, "Investing 5 per- cent of the total value of a home on land- scaping, and doing it wisely, can add 15 percent or more to the value of a home." That 5 percent doesn't need to break the bank. To fit any budget, start with a small water column, or phase your project over a couple of seasons. The important idea is to have a game plan – big or small. Fish for Ideas with an expert: To help get that plan started, attend the 2nd Annual Madison Area Pond Tour on June 23, 2012. See a variety of sites in and around Madi- son firsthand, learn how to incorporate a water feature into your existing landscap- ing. During the tour speak to the experts on site from The Bruce Company, Paradise Pond Shop and Proscapes, LLC. See and hear how easy and enjoyable these water features are to create and maintain. A portion of the proceeds from the 2012 Madison Area Pond tour will benefit Ol- brich Botanical Gardens and American Family Children's Hospital. Get your feet wet on June 23! Tom Raemisch is the Corporate Marketing Manager with The Bruce Company. For more information contact (608) 836-7041 or 40 BRAVA Magazine May 2012
