Whether you’re looking at how to build a small waterfall with rocks or go bigger with a rock wall to your pool, you may already know the aesthetic purpose they serve. But just as important, they are universal and easy to maintain. Here are just 3 of the many reasons to entice you to add a water feature to your garden. 

4 Reasons to Add a Custom Water Feature


One of the most exciting elements is the ability to customize your water feature. Whether you’re looking to add floating toys, real pond fish, gravel or rocks, your options are endless. You can go with a modern, Asian, or classic pond theme or mix and match styles to create the vibe that you’re trying to accomplish. The garden pond has evolved into many ideas and can accompany many elements. Floating animals, islands, rocks, and logs create an exotic look. Hand carved rocks can add the personal element that you’re looking for. 

Makes Your Yard Look Bigger 

Having a waterfall in your pool or garden makes your yard appear bigger by reflections alone. However, choosing a dark setting with underwater lights will also enhance this feature. Ponds are a good way to enhance a smaller yard. Corner gardens surrounded by lush greenery set a serene tone to your yard.


Who doesn’t want a relaxing outdoor setting to complement their well-manicured backyard? You don’t need to stray far from your garden or yard style to complement the rest of your home and yard. Water features (of any shape or size) are eye-catching and create harmony with your landscape. Again, you can design your own water feature to fit the style and look you desire. 

Low Maintenance

You would assume that the upkeep of a water feature would be like taking on another investment. But it actually only requires the same amount of care you would give your gardens and pool! Water features of any size are easy to manage and take care of but do require regular cleaning to prevent algae build up. With a fish pond water feature, you will notice other creatures inhabit your garden space. Depending on your climate, birds, lizards and frogs are attracted to a mix of water and greenery, especially on a hot summer day. And the best part? Since the water re-circulates in most water features, you don’t have to worry about too much water being used or much algae build up.
