Outdoor water features also attract small wildlife such as birds and frogs creating a natural environment. From a financial point of view, water features can increase the value of your property. If you are considering adding a water feature to your landscape, it is recommended to benefit from the following tips and guidelines.

Water Feature Sizes

Water features can add a lot of style and natural beauty to your environment when sized to fit your garden or space. If you are unsure whether or not to add one we recommend starting with something smaller such as a tabletop fountain with plants or a medium sized pond. Opting to construct a larger and bolder water feature might require too much maintenance. However, keep in mind that a larger pond can actually have less maintenance requirements than a smaller one. This is due to the forming of a natural ecosystem around the pond. You can always start small and then expand from there for a more natural and gradual transformation from year to year. Of course if you’ve done something like this before it is easiest to start with the largest size. Smaller  water features such as floor standing waterfalls can be perfect for a balcony, small decks and confined sitting areas.

Design A One-of-A Kind Water Feature: landscape water features waterfalls

Unusually and uniquely designed water feature can be integrated effortlessly into a landscape, as long as it complements the texture, design and style of the garden. You can combine elements – basin, pedestal, spout, etc. – to create your own style. Focus on creating something you won’t find in your neighbors’ or friends’ backyard. You can explore materials and combine design ideas to create a purely unique water feature.

Using Water Features As A Focal Point

Landscape water features, especially ones with moving water, should be placed so as to serve as the focal point of your garden or any space. However, stationary water features such as pools can serve as focal point as well in any style of garden, structure formal garden, deck space, cottage garden, and all sorts of garden incarnations and plants. When you use a water feature as a focal point, the eye is drawn to it and the surrounding is relative to the water feature.

Natural Looking Water Features and water fountains

When you are deciding on a water feature, keep it simple yet natural and consider its appeal in all seasons. The material, placement and size of a water feature should be able to withstand the elements of weather, and appear natural, as if it belongs. Natural water features can help add beauty and structure to an outdoor space. Even if the water is drained in the winter, it can serve as a sculptural element.

There are many kinds of water features. ponds, fountains, and waterfalls, that you can choose for your landscape. You can construct it yourself or get professional help. These are just some of the points to consider.

Custom add-ons such as waterfall spillways (LED), fountain units, fog/mist generators, and others should be requested sooner rather than later. Because we have negotiated deals with several of the largest manufacturers for pond and outdoor garden supplies, we are able to offer these at significant cost savings to our customers.

We have in stock all GPH waterfall and pond pumps to power each waterfall that are quiet and efficiently built to save energy. The major advantage of WaterfallNow’s rocks as our previous clients know is that the rock waterfalls require almost no maintenance and do not need to be operated 24/7. The significant savings in cost both before and after the project is completed makes these waterfalls a great choice for any garden renovation project.
