Water Feature Ideas to transform your garden

Change the ambiance of your garden and add a feature that can help you feel relaxed after a busy day.  A feature that will bring life and a peaceful sound as the water gushes over the rocks.  This can be a pond, a fountain or waterfall.

Transform your garden into a peaceful retreat with these water feature ideas

  1. Consider a free-standing self-contained water feature. The classical option is the pouring lady statue.  Grace your garden with dignity and culture as this feature streams water into a pond or bowl.  The options include the large classic ball, large modern antique limestone with a bronzed ball, ornate two-tiered in antique stone and white limestone, two-tiered candy twist traditional design and beautiful water jug lady statue. These types of designs easily fit in the architecture of every garden.
  2. For the larger garden area, look at the in-ground water feature. These fountains are ideal if you want a low key fountain to blend into its surroundings. These fountains are installed inside the ground and decorated with lavish garden beds and features.
  3. Pond fountains add elegance and tranquility to any garden. There are so many options to consider. Go for a partially above ground water feature.
  4. Having a water wall creates a space to relax in listening to the falling water. Give your water wall a natural look using rough stones. But if you like something more modern, choose an installation with lights and beautiful jets of water.
  5. A more traditional feel is to have a water fountain sprouting out of the wall gushing into a bowl or pond.
