Whether you opt for buying an affordable pre-made fountain or decide to build your own, you’re bound to get some great inspiration from a water feature that highlight nature’s most important element. Backyard water features serve any lifestyle and budget.

There are 5 main groups of water feature.

PONDS:
The four basic types of ponds are, reflecting pools, ornamental pools, water gardens and fish ponds. Each of these may be any size, shape or depth.

WATER GARDENS:
Water gardens are living water features, replete with aquatic plant life that is full of vibrant colors and textures. Plants, both inside and outside the perimeter of the pond create a lush natural setting.

FOUNTAINS:
An almost limitless variety of shapes and sizes of fountains may be added to your water feature. The sound of water tumbling and splashing on itself combined with a refreshing mist carried by the breeze is truly invigorating.

WATERFALLS:
Like fountains, waterfalls add sound, motion and vitality to your water feature. Often created with natural stone slabs or boulders, waterfalls bring a vertical dimension. Waterfalls capture your interest from a distance as they dance and flow.

STREAMS:
Streams are ideal for meandering along paths, walkways or even pool decks. Acting as natural filters, streams are often designed to flow into waterfalls and cascade into a pond to help sustain the entire ecosystem of a water feature.
