Share Article

Celebrities are finding peace, serenity, and escape from their busy lives by installing water features in their yards including ponds, waterfalls, streams, fish, and flora.

Long hours of shooting or rehearsal, the parties, the award shows, the guest appearances, the photo shoots, the traveling. With their busy lives and the constant hustle bustle of the industry, where do celebrities go to get away from it all? Do they have to travel to distant places or go hide out in far away retreats? Not these days. Celebrities are opting to bring their retreats and beautiful getaways to their homes.

Whether it is a pond full of fish, a waterfall, or a stream, celebrities are enjoying just staying home to get away from their busy lives. They are able to have an environment where exotic fish and rich flora thrive together providing peace and comfort for them and their families to enjoy. They can listen to the trickling water to soothe their minds and smell the scent of some of the most beautiful flowers. It is a place where they can bring family and friends together to enjoy each other’s company or just sit quietly by themselves.

Steve Sandalis of Mystic Water Gardens, located in Encino, California has been creating beautiful outdoor environments for 10 years. He started doing all this for the same reason these celebrities are choosing to do it. While living in New York and working as an actor, he wanted a place to reflect and get away from it all. He decided to turn his own yard into a beautiful, peaceful getaway. After experiencing the joy that this brought to him he knew that he had to share it with others. This became his passion and has created many different environments for celebrities alike.

Some of these celebrities include Jeff Probst of Survivor, Matt Sorum of the band Velvet Revolver, and actor Scott Baio. Their environments include different combinations of waterfalls, ponds, streams, fish, plants, lights, and rocks. Another celebrity in Malibu, California had a 100x80 trout lake created with streams and a waterfall. These celebrities get to enjoy every bit of nature in the privacy of their own yards and with very little work. And contrary to what some may believe, these features are very low maintenance.

In a time where everyday life is getting busier and busier, it looks like the celebrities have found the answer to peace and serenity.
