  • 1. Pools, Waterfalls, and Fountains: Designing Landscape Water Features the Easy Way Water features are becoming staples in many gardens and landscapes. These elements add a nice classy touch to any outdoor space, as well as a creative patch of something green. Landscape water features can suit almost any garden style, size, or the gardener's time commitment. For people who are considering adding a water feature to their landscape or garden, or to those planning to expand what they already have, here’s a guide for the perfect design and execution.
  • 2. Water features don’t always have to be big and bold. These elements work best if they fit the space and the gardening time. A simple table-top water feature, such as a water lily or a water lettuce in a bowl, is great for gardening in a busy life or for a small area. This is best for beginners or those who don’t have much time tending to their landscape. These small water features are perfect as table-top accents, a touch of nature in a modern space, or a nice, low-maintenance in a small space. These spare-time landscape elements are ideal for balconies, small decks, and other small areas. Small and Simple
  • 3. One of the best things about features for landscapes is their versatility. These elements lend themselves to virtually any kind of shape and watertight container. Anything from a small teapot, an oversized ceramic bowl, a used watering can, to an oversized clay pot can be used either as a design element or accent. Containers add height and structure to a landscape water feature. This is best for gardeners who have a knack for reimagining. With the right pieces, containers can add depth to any garden design. These elements are also easy-to-maintain after installation. Shapes and Containers
  • 4. Natural-looking landscapes, as well as unusually-designed water features, such as fountains, can integrate seamlessly into any landscape. The key is to tie the whole garden together and use only shapes and materials that complement the existing shape, texture, and style of the outdoor space. Putting together a custom fountain—from the basin, pedestal or base, to the spout determines the style. Water features, such as fountains, are also ideal for all-season, as it doubles as a centrepiece when the rest of the garden dies back during autumn and winter. This is best for gardeners who want a relatively fuss-free garden accent that can last throughout the year.
