Decorative water features are a unique and beautiful way to give your landscape a fresh face. Fountains and Patio Ponds are quick and affordable landscape ideas to add a splash of water to your outdoor living spaces. We’ve gathered some of our favorite small space water features to inspire you to add the sound of water to your gardens.
Our newest fountain is the Stacked Slate Sphere that looks great in any setting! Enhance a walkway or patio with this water feature that’s available in three sizes. You can even group them together for a statement piece in your landscape.
The Stacked Slate Sphere is available in three sizes and you can light it up at night, too. Birds and butterflies will visit the fountain for refreshment and you’ll enjoy gazing upon its beauty both day and night. Fill an unused space in your yard with this stunning fountain.
Made with the same finish, a Stacked Slate Wall is impressive wherever you tuck it into your landscape. You can link these together to create a unique focal point. Of course, they look great as a single fountain too.
Decorative fountains are popping up in yards all over the country as more homeowners look for unique ways to improve the curb appeal of their house. Unlike the plug-and-play DIY fountains you find in the big-box stores, an underground reservoir holds the pump and water that recirculates through the fountain and is completely hidden from view. You’ll find a variety of fountain styles to suit your taste and budget.
A trio of stone fountains welcomes visitors to this suburban home, adding to the home’s value with its increased curb appeal. Rather than an expanse of grass or a large bush, the homeowners opted for beautiful fountain rocks which can be seen through their living room picture window.
If you prefer something a little more elegant, you might enjoy a series of bowls spilling into each other, or together feeding a small stream. The best part of these Spillway Bowls is that you can link several together in a variety of patterns.
Birds and butterflies enjoy visiting outdoor fountains for a refreshing splash or nourishing drink. Every nature lover will enjoy the many benefits of decorative small space water features. And why stop with just one fountain? Place them in nooks and crannies throughout your garden spaces.
One of the fastest-growing trends in outdoor living features is the combination of fire and water. Our popular Fire Fountain creates a soft, pleasing sound of water as it flows over and around the pebbles. Fire adds a surprising element that looks great at night, too.
Miniature water gardens, also known as Patio Ponds, are becoming increasingly popular on patios and decks. These small-scaled ponds provide the opportunity to enjoy beautiful waterlilies in a variety of colors. You can even add small goldfish. Kids love watching the tiny fish swim around.
Whatever you choose, you’re sure to enjoy the beauty and refreshment that a small water feature adds to your outdoor living spaces! What's your favorite?
