Fashionable Water Features
SSummer is well underway and for many of us, most of our time will be spent outdoors in the garden. However, do you feel like there is something missing from your garden? We think a fashionable water feature can fill that gap.
We’re not talking ponds which often look outdated and can present several hazards, nor do we mean old fashioned statue style water fountains, instead we are talking about the more modern water features which add a touch of style and class to your garden.
Not only are these water features stylish, but they are also incredibly relaxing, and the trickling water sounds can help turn your garden into a calm and serene space to unwind outdoors.
Classic Water Fountains
We love the classic water fountains that are exactly what they say on the tin, no-fuss, no fancy show-off features but the simplicity of running water and nothing more. If you’re opting for a classic water feature, we say the bigger the better. If the water feature isn’t going to demand attention in other ways, then the bigger it is the more of a focal point it can become in the garden. If the water feature doesn’t have any special features and is small, it could become lost in the garden and completely forgotten about.
LED Water Fountains
Allowing your water feature to be more than just a plain water fountain, LED water features are perfect for adding an extra something to your garden. The LED lights will add even more ambience to your garden, especially in the evening and will encourage you to unwind in the garden at any time of day, not just during sunlit hours.
Though not bright enough to act as an outdoor light for you to see and eat by, these LED lights are subtle and intriguing and look stunning amongst the bubbling water of the fountain.
Planter Water Fountains
Why not make your water fountain part of the scenery? Instead of simply placing your fountain at a random spot within the garden, let it become part of the garden wherever it is by planting your favourite plants in it.
This means that your water feature won’t look bulky or out of place but will instead become a part of its surroundings.
Water Fountain Care
No matter what water feature you opt for, it will need regular maintenance in order to keep it working and to ensure the water does not turn green and dirty. For best results, we recommend replacing the water in your fountain at least once a week and, at the same time, cleaning the feature with a cloth to remove any dirt.
If you need help choosing a water feature for your outdoor space, we recommend a visit to one of our showrooms in order to view these fountains on display.
