What is a Water Feature?
Water features may be a form of landscaping or just a decoration that incorporates water, either indoor or outdoor, and may vary from a large landscaped pond or lake to a small tabletop water fountain and everything in between. Water features designed for the back yard may be small waterfall with a small pond or just a recirculating tank. All types of waterfalls or rock designs may be made from small to large.
- Fountainscapes: The smallest outdoor features, incorporate a tank and recirculating system that is easy to maintain.
- Pondless Waterfalls: are built into the landscape but still use a recirculating tank and are easy to maintain.
- Ecosystem Ponds: are small or large and include a balance of rock, gravel, fish, plants, aeration and filtration to produce a living environment.

There is nothing like the sound of a peaceful mountain stream or bubbling brooke. Even the medical proffession acknowledges the healing benefits of nature. Relieve stress without leaving your home! There is nothing stopping you from building your own private oasis right in your backyard!
