Add sound and movement to your garden with a water feature

28

Whether you are trying to achieve a traditional, classical or contemporary style for your self-build garden, a water feature can add interest and intrigue. There are many varieties of water features available to suit all garden sizes and budgets.

You may have an existing pond in need of an interesting focal point or maybe you are looking to create movement and sound in a courtyard garden – a water feature is a perfect solution for any garden setting.

Self-circulating fountains offer a water feature for any garden or landscape whether small or large. Available in a number of styles and sizes, self-circulating water features provide a beautiful focal point for small gardens, terraces and patios whilst looking equally at home nestled into the landscape of a larger garden.

Romanesque fountain

This low-level-style self-circulating water feature adds an interesting focal point to both traditional and contemporary settings and is also suitable for interior schemes – bringing the garden into the home to achieve modern alfresco living.

Napoli fountain

For a more elaborate self-circulating design, the Italianate-style of a Napoli fountain is perfect for creating a statement focal point. Water cascades from a naturalistic bud into the top bowl before falling into the bottom bowl.

Centrepiece fountains

Centrepiece fountains offer a versatile option for existing ponds or alternatively positioned within a pool surround. Whether you’re looking for a fountain to be the focus of your new self-build garden or a subtle design, centrepiece fountains are available in many shapes and sizes.

Something smaller

Smaller garden schemes may require something more modest. A smaller water feature can be positioned either adjacent to a pool or used as a centrepiece design to bring style and elegance to a classical or contemporary setting.

When space is an issue, a wall fountain may be better suited. There are many options available dependent on whether you are looking for a self-circulating design or a water feature positioned to add interest to a small pool or pond. A self-circulating design is ideal for adding interest to a patio or feature wall within a garden.

Many self-circulating designs are suitable for both exterior and interior, with many looking equally at home in an orangery or conservatory or positioned within in a garden or landscape.

Whether your garden is large or small there are many water features available to suit any garden design in traditional, classical and contemporary styles to suit your taste and budget.
