Although the weather is freezing cold and your landscape is blanketed in white snow, you are probably dreaming of warmer days that your landscape can flourish in. If you are looking to add new features to your landscape in the spring for beautification purposes you may want to consider a water feature. Water features can provide metal and physical benefits. The sounds of water can be calming and the addition of the feature will make you landscape more aesthetically pleasing. As you being early planning for your landscape take keep these considerations in mind about installing a water feature:

  • What kind of water feature is right for you? Some features require more maintenance than others, so be sure to consider the type of feature that will suit your lifestyle.
  • What type of water feature will match your landscape? A desert landscape with no trees would not pair well with a woodland fish pond just as a dry river bed would not look well in a tropical setting.
  • Where will you place your water feature? Will it be the focal point, will it be viewable from all points of your landscape, will there be a path leading to it, or will it be a hidden treasure.
