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.A great resource for choosing and caring for a water feature including ponds, waterfalls and fountains

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!

My Garden Water Feature Articles

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.





  1. Sitting by a pond after a long day is nothing but relaxing, especially when it is at your own home! I love how to said it’s the “focal point” of the yard. That is so true, and it can add so much character to your yard. Finding the perfect one for you can enhance the appearance of your home and will bring wild life around as well!

  2. Thanks for your comment about how water features in your garden could enhance it and allow you to enjoy it more. I didn’t know that water features could be anything from bird baths to fountains. My husband and I are thinking about having a decorative water fountain installed in my mother’s backyard garden for her birthday because we know that would make it look even better!
