Water features provide an attractive sight with many models that provide a relaxing background sound of tinkling water. The constant movement also helps bring your garden to life. Its presence, sound and movement helps to create an aura of tranquillity while also encouraging wildlife into your garden.
Larger gardens lend themselves to elegant ponds or streams that wind round terraces. Smaller gardens benefit from self contained units many of which are child friendly. You can choose from contemporary to traditional styles made from copper, or stainless steel, reconstituted stone or colourful resin.
Wildlife and water features really bring a garden to life. Water adds sound and movement while they can also add attractive and definitive focus points. Or brighten up awkward spaces that you do not know what to do with and are spoiling the overall effect of your garden. Perhaps where neither plants nor grass will grow?
Whether you have a large, small, town or country garden and whatever your tastes you will find something to suit. There is so much choice today, which also includes the introduction of solar power. This means no installation costs and instant effect! For larger gardens, a pond is a great way to bring wildlife into your outdoor spaces and on summer days you can watch dragonflies or water boatmen skimming the water!
Contemporary materials to create big bold modern designs are stainless steel, granite or resin. These types of water features are often seen in stylishly modern urban gardens. You only have to visit Chelsea or Hampton Court Flower Shows to witness the extraordinary displays of modern water features. Water walls made of glass is another water feature that is becoming increasingly popular.
The more traditional fountain is often made from stone, marble or a concrete mix and looks good in any garden, urban or country. So install a water feature and enjoy the extra touch it puts to your garden. Remember wildlife and water features go together like a horse and carriage!
