There is no better way to add a unique feature to any garden then to install some type of water feature.  Water features come in such a large variety of different types that it is easily possible to find one that fits your garden area almost perfectly.  They can be as elaborate as a waterfall flowing into a small stream emptying into a large garden pond filled with goldfish, or as simple as an urn water fountain.  No matter your budget, you can add a garden water feature that will provide the ideal solution for enhancing this very special space.

While when most people think of water fountains, it is the large water fountains they encounter in downtown plazas they think of, it is much more likely that you will find something more simple in a person's back yard.  The reason this is the case is because you can achieve the exact same benefits from a small fountain as you can one of the large plaza fountains.  The water flowing in a small urn water fountain will provide the same soothing effect as the water trickling in the fountains of the finest New York hotels.

Another advantage of the smaller fountains will be the maintenance.  In most cases, these fountains are self contained units that require only a power source for continuous operation.  Water is added to the unit when it is first installed and the attached pump continually recirculates the water through the pump, out the spout and into the catch basin of the container.  Occasionally add a little water to the system to account for evaporation, drain and remove the pump if you are in an area that is susceptible to freezing during the winter months and you have performed the majority of the maintenance needed with a small unit.

So when you consider adding a water feature to your backyard garden, remember that you do not have to spend hours digging and hauling rock.  Nor do you have to take out another mortgage on your home and spend a large amount of money to achieve the tranquility that a gently flowing waterfall can provide.  If you so choose, you can take a trip to the local home improvement store, purchase an inexpensive urn water fountain, bring it home, plug it in, fill it with water, and sit back and relax while you enjoy the sights and sounds of your new low maintenance, high pleasure, backyard garden water feature.
