What Water Features Can I Fit in a Small Space?

    Looking to spruce up your yard but don’t have a lot of space? Fountains and container water gardens are the perfect way to add a splash of water to your landscape.  Affordable and easy to install, you’ll find a variety of water features to give your outdoor living space a unique look.

    1. Miniature Water Gardens

    Miniature water gardens, also known as Patio Ponds, are becoming increasingly popular on patios and decks. These small-scaled ponds provide the opportunity to enjoy beautiful waterlilies in a variety of colors. You can even add small fish like Rosy Reds. Kids love watching the tiny fish swim and you can bring them indoors when winter rolls around.

    2. Fountains

    Refreshing fountains are popping up in yards all over the country as more homeowners look for unique ways to improve the curb appeal of their house. An underground reservoir holds the pump and water that recirculates through the fountain. You’ll find a variety of fountain styles to suit your taste and budget.

    3. Fire Fountains

    One of the fastest-growing trends in outdoor living features is the combination of fire and water. Fire Fountains create a soft, pleasing sound of water as it flows over and around the pebbles. Fire adds a surprising element that looks great at night, too.

    4. Pondless Waterfalls

    For people with a little more space, a pondless, or disappearing, waterfall can provide the sound of water in your backyard minus the footprint and maintenance of a traditional pond.
