Water features have become very popular in the last ten years. Sizes and budgets can range from small and tranquil, to large and powerful. Common materials used in these types of elements are natural stones.
The options are endless with water features. Large cascading water falls are best built into an existing grade on your yard site. Depending on size they can require yearly maintenance and are not always a practical application in your yard site. Water features also require winterization.
Fountains have also increased their presence on yard sites. They can be quite cost effective. In many situations they are a much better fit for the average consumer. In most cases fountains are available in a plug and play manner. They can easily be tweaked with the addition of external nozzles to offer a unique look.
If you have a look at your local garden center, you will notice that the availability of fountains and choices have greatly improved in recent times. The addition of lighting in any water feature can also offer a very dramatic look at nighttime.
