There are not many ways you can change the look of your garden without having to do major landscaping. If you are happy with the look of your garden but feel that it needs that little bit extra, why not consider adding a water feature or garden fountain? If you have ever been to a house where there is a reflection pool with a water feature in it, you will realise how this will change the look of your garden. What you do need to consider is the size of your garden in comparison to the type of water feature or garden fountain that you want.

Make sure that the garden fountain or water feature that you choose for your garden compliments the size of the garden and does not over power it! The last thing you need is a garden fountain or water feature that will land up taking up more than 50% of your garden space. A garden fountain or water feature needs to be tasteful and it needs to almost blend in with your garden. Here are 5 ideas that you should consider if you want to make a design change to your outside areas:

  1. Three tier outdoor fountain: this is a great addition to a smaller cosier patio which is surrounded by foliage. You can transport your home into an Italian countryside by simply adding this water feature. Choose rustic colours and marble to really give it a sophisticated edge.
  2. A beautiful backdrop: if you already have an old classic fountain situated in your garden than it may need some TLC. You can achieve this by using mosaic and bright colours for its backdrop. It is the perfect addition to a small semi-circular fountain.
  3. Asian influence: water features are influenced by a number of different cultures. If you need some Zen in your life than a concrete Asian inspired fountain is ideal for you. Use it in a stone lined area and let the soothing sounds of the water flow through you as you sit out on your patio at night.
  4. Table top fountain: a new trend that is taking over is having smaller water features placed around the home. One of the most popular designs is that of the table top fountain that is full of character. These table top fountains are small and quaint and can fit perfectly onto any size table, indoors or out. It is a great conversation starter at the next party you host.
  5. Classic statue: although it is a classic, this type of fountain is still extremely popular. Whether you are looking for a Greek or Victorian style statue it can certainly add that extra level of sophistication to your home. This fountain should be placed in an area that is highly visible. It will be the showstopper as people walk around your home, while providing you with beautiful sounds of the trickling water.

No matter what type of style you are going for you are bound to find a solution that works for you. It is important to take into consideration the area that you are working with. Once you know the dimensions as well as how close the water line is, you will be able to go shopping and find the perfect water feature or garden fountain for your garden.
