How to Improve Your Backyard with Water Features

In the Suburbs

Working with a slightly bigger yard than the one you had at that first downtown condo? Then you have even more options when it comes to adding a water feature. The stone, granite, and ceramic fountains will still work, but you can choose bigger versions and pair them with more elaborate setups, including small ponds. If you choose to put in a pond, make sure you find a spot in your yard that isn’t too sunny or too shady (to minimize algae growth) and leave room for water-friendly plants that will thrive in or near the water, including water lilies, cattails, marsh marigolds, and lotus flowers.
