#1 Basic Water Feature
Sometimes the best way is to go simple. A basic water feature is a statement in itself. You can choose old-school outdoor ponds. Even though they are called basic they are used in huge numbers for the simple reason that they look stunning and are extremely easy to build. If you want to know how to build your own DIY pond you can have a look at our blog on the easiest possible way to do so.
#2 Backyard Fountain
If an outdoor pond seems too mainstream for you, you can always choose a beautiful backyard fountain. They give the backyard a classic rustic look which takes your garden a step further to being an aesthetic sight to sore eyes. These can be purchased at local Garden shops and even home centres.
#3 Modern Feature
If rustic and traditional is not your personal style, you can always add modern water features to your garden. You can even customise modern designs to be Water-centered. You can implement clean simple lines which have a metal accent and neat texture to give your garden a minimalist and modern look.
#5 Garden Waterfall
Waterfalls are wonderful alternatives for fountains. They have a wide variety in themselves. You can choose – 1 tier, 2 tier, or gorgeous 3 tier waterfall which empties into a pond. If you prefer silent water movement sounds you can have the waterfall placed at a short height from the ground. On the other hand if you believe in “go big or go home” you can choose a waterfall which is located at a high altitude and splashes water all day long.
#4 Stone Water Garden
This is one of my personal favorites. If you love having the structure of rocks and stones in your garden, then this water feature is made for you. This also gives a very natural look as the stones blend into nature really well. Instead of having stagnant water, you can use rocks to channelise and shape the water to make an extraordinary natural water feature.
#6 Mystic Waterfalls
Mystic waterfalls have become quite a trend in recent times. You find this in local parks, gardens or exotic properties. A very popular example for Mystic waterfalls are the ones which have an ancient deity or any statue for that matter, shooting water out of its mouth.
#7 Deck Water Feature
Decks are one of the best places to include a water feature. If you do have one and it still doesn’t give you the effect you are looking for, we know what you’re missing. The secret to having a stunning Deck is to have a mixture of natural and man made elements which look both unique and beautiful. This also makes the scenery a lot more peaceful and provides a touch of zen to your garden.
