Dive into Water Gardening

Water gardens can offer rewards in myriad shapes and sizes, from a small potted garden on a deck to a meandering stream or cascading waterfall. The presence of water transforms a garden into an enchanting retreat. Water is also an essential component of a wildlife habitat. When planning a water garden, use the following tips to determine the best location for it.
  • Visibility is Key to Location

    Build a pond or other water feature where you will see and hear it—from indoors, too—not in a corner of the yard you rarely visit. Be sure plants and structures don't obstruct your view.
