How to Choose Material for Your Water Features

How to Choose Material for Your Water Features

The idea of adding a water feature to your garden space can be exciting and thrilling. Once you have decided on the type of water feature, you can barely wait to start and finish the construction of the water feature so that you can enjoy it. But, there are factors to consider if you really want a pinnacle of natural beauty and style in your garden. A water feature appearing out of place or being too big or too small in the space can reduce the appeal of the feature. When choosing and planning your water feature, you should make sure that it fits or complement the composition of your garden. Perhaps, you can use the same materials that are featured elsewhere in the garden design. You should consider the ability of the material to hold water before selecting the material for your water feature.

Water Containing Ability

Waterproof masonry, such as concrete, is ideal for water features as it seal in the water, whether it is a raised or sunken pool. If you are choosing a material with joints, such a brick or rocks, they will leak so you should add a specialized render to the interior of the pond. You can choose colored or clad with tiles or a waterproof membrane such as PVC. Don’t add my decoration, made of material, which can puncture or damage the waterproof liner. In addition, the joints where pipes enter the pool should be watertight. You can line the edge of a pond liner with flat stones will protect it, but it needs to be smooth-edged to prevent punctures.

Types of Water Feature Material

Natural Stone

Natural stone has been used for hundreds of years to build water features, especially fountains. And when it comes to natural look, nothing beats it. You can use sandstone or marble, which are available in variety of colors and patterns. Sandstone water features come in amazing shades and is cheaper than marble or granite. The most attractive aspect of stone is that it is entirely natural and blends well with outdoor environment. It can withstand the effects of elements – wind, sunshine and rain.

Granite

Granite is a very strong and natural material which can have a lifespan of over a decade, even when it is constantly exposed to the elements. It makes granite a great material for water features. It comes in different shades, can be polished to achieve a smooth finish and can be carved to add shapes and texture. But, if you are on a budget, it may not suit you as it comes with a high price tag.

Bamboo

Bamboo is a cheaper natural material than stones and other material and goes well in Oriental style gardens. Bamboo is, generally, used in conjunction with popular Buddha water features. It has a long lifespan and is a durable option.

Wooden

If your garden is old-fashioned or you wish to maintain the natural look, a wooden water feature could be an excellent choice. The only drawback is that wood needs to be treated to prevent rotting and warping from continuous water exposure. It needs to be seal, varnish or treated regularly to maintain its condition.

Copper

Copper add amazing color and shine to your garden. You can match it to complement the existing color scheme in your garden. As long as you use a high quality copper, it can resist water erosion and wont rust. It can be molded into interesting and unique shapes.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel can last for decades, provided it is of good quality and is relatively thick. Grade 304 steel is most suitable for water features, but can be expensive. Steel, like copper, can be molded into interesting designs and can be provided a smooth or rough texture finish.

When selecting the material for your water feature, you should consider the size of your garden, its intended purpose, what is the existing landscape style, is it safe and whether it is within your budget. If the material does not work well with the garden or blend in it, you might not get the desired result.

Improve Air Quality

Indoor air quality can be a source of concern especially in rooms which get little fresh air. Flowing water produces negative ions which improves overall air quality. Air purifiers do the same but might not be suitable for a more professional working environment. You could use the best of both worlds for better results. An indoor water feature emits negative ions, appears beautiful and produces soothing sounds of falling water. Negative ions attract dust and other irritants from the air. You can simply clean out the water tray once a month.
