Koi Pond

Isn’t it mesmerizing to watch those majestic orange fish calmly swim about in their little pond like they don’t have a care in the world? There’s something so relaxing about it. 

Welcome that peace to your backyard oasis with your own little koi pond alongside your luxury inground pool. Koi are easy to care for so don’t worry about it adding too much stress to your to-do list.  

Tiered Fountain

Fountains are always a hit when it comes to water features. They are incredibly versatile that you can create a fountain to fit with any decorating scheme! 

A tiered fountain is pretty easy to set up. Simply pick a few receptacles (three is a good number) and set them up so water can pour from one to the next. The receptacle can be anything from leaves formed from cement to stone bowls with a spout on one side.

Water Wall

Don’t have enough space for a fountain but love the idea of running water in your yard? A water wall is the perfect option. 

Simply set up a vertical slab in a container. Add rocks or other accents around the base of the slab to add interest to the container. Now, all you have to do is set up a pump and let the water flow down the slab.

Not only do you get the sound of running water, but also, depending on the material you use, you add an interesting texture or color to your space.  

Backyard Creek

If you really want to step up the sound of running water, why not build a small creek winding its way through your backyard? We promise it will feel 10 degrees cooler just sitting in the shade on lazy summer days by your own little creek.

Set it up with a retaining pool at the end and pump the water back to the beginning to constantly reuse the water. 

Bird Bath

Perhaps the quintessential garden water feature accent, birdbaths have always been popular. They are great as a low-maintenance water feature and offer the added benefit of attracting pretty birds to your backyard. Hang up a few bird feeders if you want to further encourage them to come visiting.
