Water. It’s hard to imagine anything quite as relaxing and tranquil as a gently splashing fountain; dancing, sparkling brook; or rippling pond filled with colorful fish. Water features have been incorporated into landscapes since ancient Chinese and Roman times, when they were revered for these soothing qualities.
Nowadays, garden water features can be created in a variety of ways—it has never been easier to bring the relaxing charm of moving water into your yard or garden. This section of HomeTips provides articles to help you find just the right water feature to fit your style, and work within your budget.
