Water Gardens

With soothing sounds and distinctive plants, water features such as ponds, pools, and water gardens are varied, beautiful, and welcome additions to the garden. We have ideas to help you pick one that's perfect for your landscape. Get started with 19 diverse ideas, from small fountains to expansive ponds. Smaller water features are great do-it-yourself projects; try a deck-top pond, a pond in a bucket, or a pond in a box. All are easy to build, require little maintenance, and are small enough to fit in slim locations, such as a balcony or apartment garden. Some gardeners like fish in their water features; many types of fish are appropriate for water gardens, and we have a guide to help you choose and care for yours.
