From Simple to Grand-Scale – Water Features for Any Budget

Refresh Your Backyard With a Water Feature

4 Water Features for Any Budget

Water features are a great way to add a stunning focal point to your backyard. They offer tranquility and a place for wildlife (and your family) to rest. From fountains to ponds, water features add to the beauty and value of your home. Here are a handful of water features any homeowner can incorporate into a backyard design.

Winding Waterways

Waterways resemble aqueducts and serve as borders between patio spaces and gardens. They can be winding or straight, and some feature ornate bridges connecting pathways. If you're looking for an inexpensive way to beautify your backyard, a simple waterway is a great option.

Tranquil Ponds

Backyard ponds can either be constructed with a filtering system or left completely natural with plants doing all the filtration. Many ponds feature wildlife like Koi and aquatic plants. Ponds offer versatility in design, vary in size and plant life, and provide ample opportunity for lighting design and seating areas.

Awe-Inspiring Waterfalls

Waterfalls are the showstopper of the water feature world. Though more expensive to install and maintain, they are worth the cost. Some homeowners use waterfalls as an aesthetic feature near a deck or patio, while other waterfalls may feed into a swimming pool. Waterfalls can be simple or intricate with multiple tiers of cascading water.

Simple Fountains

Fountains or birdbaths are another inexpensive way to add aquatic inspiration to your backyard. Fountains can be simple – a birdbath or small patio fountain – or they can be extremely detailed. Some fountains have multiple levels and are hand sculpted from cast stone or metal.
