6 Water Features You’ll Love
After a long day, there’s nothing better than sitting back to relax with the tranquil sound of water in the garden. Water brings a peaceful element to the yard and there’s so much versatility in how to incorporate a water feature into your space. Depending on the size of your garden, your budget and design preferences, here are 6 water features you’ll love:
A waterfall can be a beautiful focal point or blend seamlessly in to a landscaped garden setting. Depending on your overall style and backyard design, there are many options for rustic or modern waterfall features. If you’re considering a DIY water feature project, our staff at Rockland can advise on which landscaping supplies you may require.
A pond is a great water feature to add interest to corners of the yard or provide a place for people to gather around when entertaining outdoors. Ponds can be landscaped to mimic nature by using flagstone, decorative rock and boulders or it can be very minimalist for a Zen garden vibe. You might even consider adding more life to your pond by adding a few fish!
Creating a garden oasis by building a creek or stream may be the answer to solve a boring, plain expansive yard. This water feature can be used to divide your space into sections and can bring a really natural element to your garden. Steams are also perfect for properties that are on a slope.
This is one of the easiest water features to add your garden or patio space that immediately creates ambiance. Fountains are available in so many different sizes, styles, shapes and materials that there is almost no reason why not to incorporate a fountain into your garden!

5) Water Wall
Perfect for small or narrow outdoor spaces and big city living. A wall water feature works similar to a fountain since you can either build it in with natural stone landscape products or you can buy one with a reservoir that’s plug and play which works well for those who may only have a small balcony.
6) Boulder Bubbler
Add the sound of water trickling in the background with a custom water feature by simply choosing a boulder. Rockland has all the landscape supplies you’ll need to create a boulder bubbler plus we deliver to Edmonton and surrounding areas.
