Different types of water features for your garden
Just as we say there are several types of water features you can choose from to add to your garden, here are some of them.
First on our list is the common one, the natural pond. This is the very basic landscape feature that is well-liked by most homeowners, often called the humble pond. There are four basic ponds, a reflecting pool, ornamental pools, fish ponds, and a water garden. Each of them differs by size, depth, and shape.
Ponds are constructed by excavating a hole and lining it with a rigid one or a flexible type. Ponds are created to meld smoothly to any landscape. Ponds are for those fish lovers, adding their colored koi carp, watching and feeding them.
Pond less Waterfall
This type of water feature is children and pet-friendly, perfect for those who want to have a risk-free water feature. We don’t want young children and pets to drown; we just want to have a relaxing ambiance at home.
The pond less waterfall is the answer to it, and it is built mainly from rocks and pebbles to create water and stream. To create its waterfall, water is pushed to the top of the waterfall and gently flows down passing through the rock until it reaches the bottom and pushed back to the top then repeats the process.
A pond less waterfall is a water feature that has no pool of water to it, so your children and pets will not drown when they fall to it. This is an artificial waterfall that is made for you to enjoy its view and listen to the sound like you are deep in the forest.
If you are looking for a water feature but don’t have extra space, water walls are the perfect choice for you. Water walls add sophistication to your home, with their stylish features you will have an additional view to look at. Water walls have the same water flow process as pond-less waterfalls, the water slowly streams down the wall and backs up to the top, and repeats the cycle.
Water walls have a filter to ensure that the water stays clean and is not engulfed with minerals that build up as time goes by. You can even change the colors and the sound of the water wall, imagine the effects on this one.
This type of water feature is the same as the sconces but spacious and has more water on it. Scupper’s water flows from the top and down to the bottom, often it creates an inground pool or standalone channel. It also has a filter to keep the water clean, scuppers are used in a concert partnered with waterfalls. It is an attraction that brings out the beauty on stages and old-world places.
This is the popular type of water features, mostly built-in modern type of gardens. This has a metallic blade feature that changes the water circulation, it has a steady curtain of water that flows down like a waterfall.
