Water features, like ponds, fountains, streams, reflecting pools, and waterfalls offer breathtaking microclimates that can serve as the focal point of your landscape or offer a secluded corner for contemplation or conversation.
Once established, water features are surprisingly easy to care for, providing a cooling effect during hot summer months. They can beautify, naturalize or bring tranquility to the landscape with the soothing sounds of water and the deep colors of aquatic plants.
If you wish, your pond, stream or pool can provide a habitat for fish, frogs or turtles. Hummingbirds and song birds are also attracted to these oases for an afternoon drink or bath.
