If your garden is not large enough to support a garden pond you may like to consider adding a water feature to your garden. If you have a water feature you can experience the sound of flowing water and as most new types are totally self-contained units there is little or no maintenance whatsoever.
Types of water features might include a small wishing well or perhaps water flowing between different levels of pots or stones. A fountain is also a popular choice, as is a pool of water that is filled by a water spout.
Water features can range in size from items that will neatly fit onto a patio table to huge features that send water shooting into the air or water running down a waterfall. There is such a degree of choice available that it would be perhaps impossible to list them all.
If you are thinking of adding a water feature to your garden you need to first look at the space available. Then check your surrounding garden design. Contemporary garden features will not suit a traditionally styled feature. Next, you need to work out how you are going to get the electricity supply to the feature to power the pump. When you have considered all these three questions, why not have a look at the great choice available online. There are many different types of water feature available that suit many different types of garden.
When most people think of a garden pond, they envisage a leafy hub of aquatic wildlife and a tranquil spot to relax after a hard day at work. But a pond does not always have to provide a suitable living environment for aquatic life, in fact many garden designers are now using ponds or water features to bring water into the garden just for display purposes.
Formal ponds should always compliment existing garden features and fit in well with their surroundings. They may not contain plant or fish life but they should still do in essence what they are designed to do. Most formal ponds use symmetrical shapes like ovals, squares of rectangles. They may feature a fountain or a waterfall as the centre point and the surrounding planting is usually done in similar shapes to the pond to mimic the design. If you have a small or narrow garden water features like this can make the garden feel bigger and longer, especially when you use mirrors as part of the design. If you do include plants in your formal pond design, it is always advisable to keep to the same symmetrical patterns as your ponds initial design.
If you only have a small city garden you don’t have to be down heartened that you cannot have a garden pond. There are now more ways than ever that you can introduce water in to your small garden.
If you only have a small amount of outdoor space but still would like to hear the relaxing sound of water in your garden choosing a water feature can be a great idea.
There are now many different type of water features to choose from. You just need to have a look at the selection available on aquatic websites to see the vast array of choice. Most of these water features are self contained and the water that is used is just re-circulated using a small pump. In fact all you need to do with some of them is just add the right amount of water and then plug them in and watch them go. You don’t even need to make alterations to your garden layout.
If you have the space and fancy being a little more adventurous, you could install a sunken reservoir with a pump that just sits below the lawn or soil level in your garden and cover it with decorative pebbles or stones. If you have a fountain that shoots a jet of water into the air the effect can be really stunning.
Adding a free standing fountain or water feature into your garden can really prove to be a beautiful focal point. Whether you choose an underground pebble pool or a stand alone surface fountain, the choice is really up to you but it is sure to provide you with many hours of relaxation.
You can buy architectural reservoirs that are similar to a large plastic basin and insert them into the ground up to the rim, if you buy a kit, these reservoirs usually come with a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of the reservoir and a plastic grid that sits on top and then decorative pebbles or stones are placed on top. The water is pumped through the grid and the pebbles to create a fountain or trickling water display and then falls back into the reservoir to be used again.
For the more adventurous water gardener, you can create your own reservoir using a small pond liner and galvanised or stainless mesh. You can dig the reservoir yourself to your own shape and size. All you need to do is make sure the liner is cut to the right dimensions so that all the water will be collected after it is projected into the air by the fountain. You can really have some great fun creating your own design and with a little hard work, a pond liner and a pond pump you can create a spectacular water feature.
Adding the luxury of water to your garden can really make a difference to your overall garden design. If you can’t afford a full size pond or simply haven’t the space to include one in your garden then you can still do this by adding a water feature.
There are two main reasons you might want to include a water feature in your garden. To enhance the garden’s aesthetic nature and to add the sound of running water into your garden. If you live near to a busy road or even just lead a really stressful life, you can really benefit from the tranquil sounds running water provides.
There are many types of water features available. From the straight out of the box type that you just need to plug in, to the intricately designed features that you need to spend some time designing and building yourself. From waterfalls to fountains to streams, the choice is really yours and your only constraints are the space you have and your budget.
Garden ponds are beautiful additions to your garden and can indeed be a focal point to your outside space. If used as a wildlife pond, they provide a great habitat to a diverse selection of wildlife that people do not realise lives in their garden. If the pond is used to keep fish like koi, it can be a relaxing hobby that when given care and attention can be really rewarding. And if the pond is just to be used to add a visual attraction to the garden, like a formal water feature, the outside space can be really lifted.
The addition of a water feature to your garden can be a beautiful focal point. And, with so many out-of-the-box solutions now available from aquatic stores online there is a plethora of choice available. From simple trickling streams to waterfalls and modern art sculptures that shoot jets of water into the air you will not be spoilt for choice.
Most of these features only need to be filled with water and then plugged into your electricity supply to work so if you are perfect if you want to create a dynamic effect quickly.
If you only have a small garden but would still like to hear the tranquil sound of running water you should consider adding a water feature to the space you have. There are many different water features in the market at the moment and each and every style can vary in size and can add something different to your garden.
The different types of water features you can choose from include wildlife pools, container ponds, bog gardens, streams, water fountains and self contained above ground water features. The feature you decide upon will depend on the look you want to create and of course the effort you want to go to. Many self contained water features are perfect to add that instant feature into your garden. Some varieties of these might include water bubbling through the centre of a mill stone or water tumbling between different levels of pots. These types of water feature come with an in-built pump and your only concern is working out the route the electricity supply will take from your house to the feature.
Adding a water feature to your garden will not only benefit you either. The local wildlife will love the free source of water and who knows, it might inspire you to create your own larger full size formal pond.
If you are thinking of building a pond but the only space you have in your garden involves sloping ground there is no need to be disheartened. In fact building your pond on sloping ground can really be an excellent idea. The sloping ground will mean that your pond or water feature can be built over different levels so you can let your creative imagination go wild.
You could create a system of waterfalls, streams, water running over falling steps or just create two separate pond areas at different levels and use a pond pump to move water between them. The ground works will usually be more difficult if you are building on a sloping site but the overall effect can be really stunning. If you are moving a lot of earth and are going to make a large cut into the ground you might want to seek professional advice regarding the shoring technique you will have to use to contain the heavy soil.
If you don’t want to create a large pond at one of the levels you could just create a water feature with several small pools and have the water cascading between them. Whichever option you choose, it can be seen that just because you have a sloping garden does not mean you can’t build your dream pond.
We have talked before about the benefits of the position of the pond in your garden, here we will try to clarify a few important points and then discuss the planning of the feature.
When choosing an appropriate position for your pond you should always try to keep the following points in mind.
• The pond should be as far away as possible from deciduous trees; this will stop a large quantity of leaves from falling into the pond during the autumn.
• Position your pond in an area that is shaded from the worst of the wind, especially northerly’s.
• Consider how you will top up the pond and look at the distance from water sources.
• Look at the distance any electrical cable will need to travel to power your pond filter or pond pump.
• Try to determine if any services travel underneath the area where you are going to dig the pond. Finding a water main or gas main whilst digging is not fun.
• Try to have a view of your pond or water garden from the house. In the winter when we don’t venture out into the garden too often it’s lovely to look at the feature from the warmth of our own home.
• Don’t position your pond in a naturally wet or boggy area, your pond may then over fill naturally leaving you with a larger pond than you anticipated.
• Try to position the pond so it receives an adequate amount of sun but is also shaded at different times of the day. Water lilies and other aquatic plants will need a good level of sunlight to flower.
• A good tip to remember is if the pond is situated near to the house then it may tend to be more formal, however if it is sited nearer the end of the garden it might be a good idea to make it more natural looking.
• Look at child safety and try to accommodate this into your pond plans.
