Unique Water Feature Ideas for Your Landscaping

Published on: October 8, 2017

Water features can add beauty and movement to your landscaping, transforming your outdoor space. While a quaint fountain or waterfall is nice, why not explore unique ideas that will set your yard apart? Here are a few intriguing water feature ideas to get your creative juices flowing to find the right option for your landscape design.

Encompassing Moat

While you may not own a castle, you can create an island on your property with integrated water features. Encircling your home with water, or at least part of it, can be a beautiful way to change your design. Consider a waterfall that flows into a stream, connecting to a pond. You can add a small bridge and water plants to make a fantastic water moat around the back or front of your home. 

Asian Pool

Bring the elegance of the East to your backyard with an Asian pool. Simplicity can be spectacular when combined with the right plants and design. This is a wonderful centerpiece for a back patio – larger pools can contain a floating walkway for a dramatic effect.

Rain Chain

Have limited space for water features? Add a rain chain that flows into a basin or pot for a small, but beautiful addition to your patio or deck.  The water flowing down the chain is mesmerizing and a great centerpiece.

While intricate water features can add a stunning effect to your landscaping, they can be tricky. Talk to your local landscaper to get the expertise you need to ensure your water feature turns out like you planned. It is worth the investment to have it installed professionally for the best effect.
