Creating a Water Feature

An important feature of a well-designed garden is a focal point. It can be a statue, a willow bench, a colorful flowering tree or an inviting architectural element like a gazebo or a rose or vine arbor. Something with strong visual interest can become the exclamation mark among the flowers and foliage. I like to add a focal point that infuses the garden with personality. Water does that for me.

Water features add an element of tranquility to a garden. The soothing sound of water bubbling instantly adds a relaxing ambiance to my garden. It's also a place where wildlife will come to take a morning drink where I can watch them from a distance while sipping my coffee.

Here's an easy way to make your own oasis of calm in the backyard...
