How to Improve Your Backyard with Water Features

In the City

For apartment-dwellers, adding a water feature to your balcony, patio, or postage stamp-sized backyard is more than worth it: Think of it as bringing a little more nature to your urban jungle. Look for small, freestanding fountains that come with their own pumps; choose from a variety of looks and styles, including stacked stones, granite, animals, barrels, wood, ceramic and more. And if you can’t find one that fits your yard, then think low-tech – a classic bird bath won’t give you the soothing sound of running water, but it will make your yard a homey place for local robins, cardinals, and more.
