Finding the right water feature is a balance of size, shape and design to make sure it suits the landscape.

Smaller areas are more suited for something like a natural rock bubbler, whereas larger spaces would benefit more from a pond, stream or waterfall. 

Height is also an important consideration with versatile design benefits, such as using a tiered waterfall to create depth.

Water features can also provide acoustical benefits and it is important to consider not just how your water feature will look in the landscape, but also how it will sound.

Waterfalls and streams are effective at reducing noise pollution from sources such as traffic to create a tranquil space that you can relax in. 

A peaceful sounding waterfall or calm stream can be the perfect way to complete your landscape design.
