Having a backyard pond is great. They offer a nice visual to any outdoor living area as well as soothing background noise. But some water features are easier to maintain than others. If you want the perks of having a pretty backyard pond without the hassle of keeping up with a more elaborate water feature, these are some ideal solutions.
Pond Waterfall: The great thing about a pond waterfall is that it can stand on its own or contribute to a pond. Waterfalls can bubble right out of decorative rocks or out of a weir that you install in your water garden. They are easy to install and require very little maintenance. If you are looking for the soothing sounds of a waterfall but less maintenance, try a disappearing waterfall. With this water feature, water is collected in a waterfall basin at the bottom of the waterfall. Then a submersible waterfall pump that is inside the basin’s waterfall well circulates the water back to the top of the waterfall.
Water Features: Add an Aquascape column or urn to any garden for a nice added water feature without the work of building a pond. Planter fountains can come out of anything from a whiskey barrel to a copper kettle to a cauldron to really improve an outdoor space while requiring little time or effort. There’s no easier way to add excitement to your pond than with water feature supplies like these.
