Visit any stately home in the UK and it will almost certainly have a water feature, perhaps a fountain e.g. the Emperor fountain at Chatsworth House, a lake, an artificial or genuine waterfall.

The reason for this is that the great landscape gardeners like Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, Uvedale Price and Humphrey Repton realised that water is a vital element in any garden, it is forever changing, reflects light, and the sound of moving water is soothing. These gardeners irrevocably changed the face of the English garden and their influence has inspired garden design in even the smallest of gardens, including adding a water feature.

Water Feature Options

Water features inside and out

There is no doubt that water features are growing in popularity. These fountains, pools, and ponds offer a great deal of entertainment and soothing after a hard day at work. If you haven't yet considered the way that a water fountain or floor water features could brighten your home and bring you a bit of joy, then maybe now is the time to think about the possibilities. Most people first consider outdoor water features, such as a swimming pool with a fountain or a koi pond.

Outdoor water features are certainly nice to have, and they can be enjoyed when the weather is nice. Consider the amount of care that goes into an outdoor water feature when planning, though. Larger ponds and pools certainly require a great deal of cleaning and maintenance to keep in excellent shape, and that might just take away from the calming nature of your pond was supposed to have. Indoor water features really are becoming more common. Many people start with a small fountain in the foyer and add more features from there.

Perhaps you have considered a wall fountain or floor water features for your own home? You can certainly find all sorts of materials and designs to fit your tastes and the style of your home, if only you go looking for them. A small fountain is often the most popular choice, but the floor water features have great merit. These can be a stunning and startling addition to your home. Of course, if you have pets or small children, you will need to consider something to safety's sake, but otherwise your possibilities are endless.

With the right design and materials, you could enjoy a wall fountain in your living room and floor water features in any other room of the house. If you're ready to consider the possibilities for water features in or around your home, then you should speak to a professional about the designs that are available and the necessary care for your choices.

Outdoor features will require more work, while indoor features may need occasional cleaning and chemicals. You may not be able to cultivate live in your indoor pools and fountains, however, while an outdoor pond could be a whole new world of fish and plant life. It's really a matter of what you would like from your water features and what you can afford to give, both in time and in money.
