Why Add a Water Feature in the Garden?

Our gardens are our private respite from the rigours of daily life. Whether your idea of a perfect Sunday is to read a good book in the fresh air or listen to birds in the trees, a water feature for the garden is an excellent addition.

You will find that garden water features are a perfect way of attracting wild birds and dragonflies, bringing a new element of life to your outdoor ecosystem.

There is little better than watching serenely hovering butterflies or blackbirds bathing in your water feature garden focal points! The relaxing sound of trickling water is also a fantastic way to soothe stress and melt away the day.

Are Water Features Easy to Care For?

They sure are. Another compelling reason to add a water feature is that they offer a massive amount of convenience.

  • Features can range from delicate fountains for small spaces to elaborate pond displays - the choice is yours!
  • If you already have a pond, you might wish to add a waterfall to create that continuous sound of running water. This can be done by adding a Waterfall blade to your current set up, and easy to keep clean.
  • Every feature is as unique as your style. Have a look at pond plants as a way to bring a pop of colour and drama to even the quietest corner of your garden.
  • Unless you add a feature to an existing outdoor pond, where you also keep outdoor fish, you won't need to worry too much about filters and food - so your aquatic display requires minimal upkeep.
  • You can use all-in-one water feature treatments to freshen up the murky water and make your water feature crystal clear in just a few minutes.
  • There are millions of ways to customise your feature to fit in with the aesthetic of your landscaping. Pebbles and coloured stones are an artful way to tie in your water feature with pathways or bring depth and shade to your watery haven.

Is a Water Feature Safe with Children and Pets?

Any water can pose a risk to small children, so it's always wise to exercise caution if you have little people living at home or expect visitors.

One of the simplest ways to prevent any slips into the water is to install pond cover nets. These can be pegged down and are available in a vast array of sizes to ensure you can focus on quality time and making the most of your garden.
