Any property can benefit from the beauty and serenity offered by a water feature. With an endless variety of options available for style and size, it can be easy and fun to find a water feature that suits the look and dimensions of any property. At Fontana Landscapes, we provide design and installation for a variety of contemporary water features for small gardens throughout BC.
Types of Water Features for Small Gardens
Many people love the idea of having a water feature on their property, but they never pursue one because they believe that their garden is too small to afford the space. While a smaller property may not be able to host a large fountainscape or a fully fledged ecosystem pond, there are still a variety of options for water features for small yards. Some great contemporary water feature ideas for small gardens include:
Pondless waterfalls use a hidden reservoir to collect and pump water back up to the top of the fountain. Because no space is required for a pond, these water features are perfect for small gardens. With a look that closely reflects nature through rockwork, plant placement, and falling water, pondless waterfalls can enhance a garden on a tight space budget.
With a variety of options for self-contained systems available, fountains are one of the best options for water features that can fit in a small garden. Fountains come in an unlimited number of styles, meaning that the design of your water feature is restricted only by your imagination. Contemporary small water fountain designs often include natural notes such as rock or brickwork, earthy colours, and simple designs. The fountain could shoot water into the air or it could allow water to overflow a vessel such as an urn to be collected by a hidden reservoir.
Small Fish Ponds
Depending on the space provided, a small fish pond could be perfect for your garden. In-ground ponds are ideal but, if space is restricted, an above-ground pond might be best. By using an elevated tank and building a natural looking enclosure, it is possible to build a pond that fits into nearly any space. Once the pond is built, it can be filled with small fish and options for a small fountain can be added to enhance the water feature’s appeal.
