Having a perfectly landscaped garden, whether big or small, is definitely every home owner’s dream. A garden is intended to be one of the finest spots where you and your family can relax and take pleasure of the true beauty Mother Nature has to offer. The serene and scenic foliage, the wonderful colors of beautiful blossoms, the sweet smelling morning breeze, the joyful chirping of backyard birds, all come together forming a perfectly balanced environment. Despite all this, outdoor gardens may still seem partial and incomplete without the presence of an exquisite and finely structured water feature. Whether it is a simple rain chain, waterfall, a fountain or a fish pond, garden water feature surely conveys and adds personality to your yard.

Garden or backyard water features have long been recognized by landscaping experts to have their own distinctive force that is able to augment the aesthetical value of any outdoor garden. Since the ancient times, many cultures all around the world had harnessed the power of these amazing features to be incorporated into their garden design. The sound of flowing water not only can eliminate other evident and abrasive noises, but it also can bring the sense of tranquility and calmness to the mind and soul, transforming your garden into a soothing and relaxing outdoor haven.

It is crucial to take several factors into thorough consideration before making your decision to set up an ideal water feature for your yard. It is best to do a little research on what are available in the current market. Try to browse through the numerous landscaping and gardening supplies websites for fantastic new ideas. You might also want to set up a few criteria that will allow you to narrow down your choices and act as a guideline to help you in making your decision.

Perhaps, you can start by choosing a theme for your water feature. Among the most popular themes are Japanese Koi ponds, Balinese water garden, English garden fountains, Riviera and Mediterranean water gardens, and the list goes on. Should your existing garden already has its theme, make sure that your new water feature and the other elements surrounding it blend together with or carry elements that reflect the theme. Next, decide on the size and design of your water feature, while taking into account the amount of space available and the perfect placement so that it can be enjoyed from both indoor and outdoor. Size and complexity will determine how much you will be spending for the project and also the cost of maintaining it. At this point, you can decide whether you want to employ the service of professional landscapers which are often costly, or you can do the project by yourself, giving you the chance you to cut down some of the cost.

Garden water features such as fountains and waterfalls come in myriads of different forms, designs and also the materials they are made of. Garden and backyard fountains can come in the form of multi-tiered fountains, barrel fountains, pond fountains and wall fountains. Pond fountains acquire larger space. They are often mechanically programmed so that the water is sprayed in several different patterns. Wall fountains, on the other hand, produce lower water sprays and perfect for small spaces such as a balcony of an apartment or condo. Stone, cast iron, copper and concrete fountains are some of the popular ones.

If you already have an existing pond in your garden, you may want to build a waterfall to complete the whole ensemble. Garden and backyard waterfalls often carry a more dramatic look and effect to your yard. Cascading waterfall is perhaps a definite favorite as this design features water falling from stone to stone at several different levels before falling into the catchment pond. The new waterfall can be constructed at a pre-existing slope or if none is available, you may have to create an artificial slope for your waterfall. You may also want to create a mini stream by digging a trough into the slope to make way for the water flow. Modern artificial fiberglass waterfalls have the appearance of natural stone. They are light thus making setting up easier and more economical. Cast stone waterfalls are much heavier but have a much more realistic look of carved, natural stone.

Types of Garden Landscaping Water Features

A water feature is an important part of Garden Landscaping as they help to give your garden that extra something special. The flow of the water around the garden is very relaxing and most water features are very attractive to look at. Whilst waterfalls and ornaments a charm, a bird bath can help the nature in your garden flourish. Any great garden is almost guaranteed to contain at least one water feature.

Despite the common thought, a water feature doesn’t waste water at all. The water that is placed into the feature is recycled on a loop and also rain water that is collected is also added. So once the water feature is filled, it shouldn’t need to be refilled for a long time.

Bird Baths

Bird baths are a great way to introduce birds into your garden. In hotter months birds will come and swim and drink from a bird bath. If you want to wake up in the morning to the beautiful sounds of singing birds then including a bird bath in your landscaping thoughts for your new project of professional. Although simple, they are extremely effective and can come in a range of different styles and designs. You could even build your own, but make sure you use safe materials that do not contaminate the water in the bird bath in any way.


A waterfall is a classic garden water system included in many landscaping designs over the years. Home build waterfalls are often very popular and easy for anyone to build. The beauty of a waterfall is that you can use it as a stand-alone ornament or include it in a much larger scale project.


A Garden Fountain is commonly considered a piece of art and you will see them in professional landscaping projects throughout the country. A low maintenance feature, they have a wide price range from simple affordable fountains to much larger, more expensive ones. So this means they can be included in any kind of budget. Soothing sounds are an important part of helping people relax in a garden and this is essentially what a garden fountain produces.

You will have plenty of styles to choose from in terms of finish, texture, and spay. Some simple sprays are just one small water pipe that releases water at a straight angle while more complex ones have multiple sprays for added effect.


An obvious solution a pond allows you to keep a variety of fish and plant life in your garden. You may be able to combine other water features like foundations and waterfalls into the pond to form an advanced feature. Most homeowners love to have nature included in their garden and it is certainly a great way of doing so.

Now that you have plenty of water feature ideas to choose from to consider in your next landscaping project, what are you waiting for? If you’re still unsure, then employing the expertise of a professional landscaping consultant may be a good idea to help you plan out your project.
