Fountains, Ponds, and Waterfalls: Choosing and Caring for a Garden Water Feature
There is something magical about water in the garden. It attracts people (young and old), pets, wildlife, and pollinators. It seems that everyone who enjoys a garden is drawn to the sound and the sight of water. A garden water feature adds interest to the garden and can be an anchoring focal point.
Water can be a showpiece or a part of a secret hideaway. Whether your garden is a small urban space or an expansive acreage, there is a water feature you can use to enhance your garden enjoyment. And this article lists a number of guides that will hopefully get your waterfall flowing in no time!

I wanted to find some information on what sort of water features were out there and how I could choose what is right for me. I have tried to break down this information into these two guides:
Then, I shared my tips for keeping my garden fountain in tip-top shape throughout the year in How to Clean and Maintain a Home Garden Fountain.
And finally, planning ahead for the jobs to be done with the fountain where the winters are cold with Winterize Your Water Garden with These Tips.
Read through this handy resource guide to choosing and maintaining a garden water feature and if you are wondering about how to install a water garden, well, you will have to wait for just a little longer for that.
Be sure to stay tuned here at Garden Therapy for the project that has inspired it all. I can’t wait to share it with you soon!
