Water Feature Types
There are lots of options for residential water features, including:
- Ponds. This is what most people picture when they think of residential water features. These self-contained ecosystems can be much lower maintenance than you might think, as along as they’ve been properly constructed and balanced. Ponds can vary in size, from small pools with a bubbler to an enormous koi pond with boulders and tumbling waterfalls. Aesthetically, a pond can be natural in appearance or more formal and structured. Budget, your outdoor space, and your personal taste will dictate execution.
- Pond-less water features. These features include waterfalls or stream beds that cascade into concealed reservoirs. They’re a great option for homeowners who like the sound of running water but aren’t interested in the maintenance of a pond. There’s also an additional safety factor with a pond-less water feature.
- Fountains. A recirculating fountain is as simple as it gets, ranging from a bubbling vase to a core-drilled boulder to a formal fountain. Water collects in a basin and is pumped back to the top. This is a very economical choice.
