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!

As of late, I have become obsessed with garden water features. I have always had small-space water gardens somewhere from bird baths to wall fountains to a pond-in-a-pot. Recently I have been pouring over books, the internet, and visiting garden centers to get every shred of inspiration I can on water features.
When I first started reading about water gardening, I noticed that many of the articles were written for those who already had ponds or fountains installed. 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 in my water feature posts here on Garden Therapy.
