Considering the fact that a water feature is widely regarded as something that should be ‘sprucing up’ a garden, it might appear a little strange to see an article on then how to titivate the feature itself. However, there is a distinct difference between the basic water feature purchased from the DIY store, and the one that has been decorated to the tilt. The latter can make a real spectacle and as we’ll show through the remainder of this article, you don’t have to spend a small fortune to achieve such effects.
We’ll now take a look through our favourite four tips for transforming your water feature – and subsequently your garden at the same time.
Don’t be afraid to add colour
This is perhaps the most effective path you can take and on the face of it, quite an obvious one. Most water features arrive in quite bland form and while they might be able to spurt water up in multiple directions – at the end of the day you’re still left with an undecorated pond.
Therefore, don’t be afraid to get the paint brushes out. If your feature sprays onto a concrete surrounding, consider changing the tone to make the area come to life a little more. Alternatively, if you’re really looking to push the boat out (is there a pun in there?), take a look at some coloured LED lamps that will slot into the water. If you can get hold of ones that gradually change shade throughout the course of the evening, the effect can be memorializing.
Do you have a ‘real’ water feature?
The term ‘water feature’ can cover a wide range and some will refer to a simple garden pond in this regard. In a lot of settings, these ponds work superbly and blend into the environment very well. If you are looking to extract a little more from your existing feature, consider adding some ‘animation’, so to speak, to the area through some of these solar powered water fountains at Powerbee.co.uk. The fact that it’s solar means that it’s easy to install into an existing feature, while it will bring a lot more attention to the area if this is what you are looking to achieve.
Work on the surroundings
We mentioned that your feature might be based around a concrete surrounding, but really, this can be anything. Small stones can be purchased for reasonable prices from most DIY stores and can make the area that little bit more natural. Other possibilities include gravel and crushed seashells, which both go some way in pushing the feature away from the manmade appearance.
Dress it up with the plants
Finally, make sure that you combine it with any plants that are already in your garden. Alternatively, if you don’t have any, try and purchase some small ones that can be placed around the feature.
If you have a waterfall or wall fountain, consider climbers which can make the effect of water trickling against a surface terrific. Don’t ignore aquatic plants either, they can again make the feature go from the bland to the exciting in an instant. If you do decide to go down this route though, don’t forget about the maintenance. A pond or water feature that is overgrown by greenery looks horrific and can completely ruin your garden.
