In the Country
If you’ve made your home in a more rural area, where you have lots of land to work with, then you can really dream big when designing your ideal water feature. Plan for flowing waterfalls; bridges and gazebos that overlook a large pond; lots of reeds, flowers, and other plants to add color and texture to your landscaping; and the incorporation of a variety of materials, including metal, stone, and marble. You can also add features that support the natural environment, including pumped bird baths that keep water flowing and ponds designed to support fish, frogs, and other wildlife.
