Given the wide selection of fountains, ponds, falls and other water features available, many people have difficulty selecting a feature for their unique landscapes and personal tastes. Use these two tips to narrow down your options:
- Think about how a feature might impact your enjoyment of the landscape and, conversely, how the landscape might impact your enjoyment of the feature. For example, a fountain under a tree usually looks dirty from leaf buildup and tannin stains. On the other hand, a natural style waterfall down the side of a slight hill under trees can look idyllic without the ugly leaf mess.
- Consider the type of statement you’re trying to make with the feature. If you want it to be the focus of a garden, then consider a large noticeable one like a tall classical water fountain or medium-sized koi pond. To draw attention to specific plants or a garden theme, consider smaller features that blend in with the landscape like ground-level bubbling, wall spout or bowl fountains.
