Things to Consider When Choosing a Water Feature
Below are a few of the main things you should consider to ensure you choose the right water feature for your garden space:
The style you like
This is the most obvious thing to consider, but you need to make sure that you choose a water feature style that you love and that suits your garden space. There are so many styles to choose from so make sure you thoroughly consider all of the different options. A water feature is an investment that will feature in your garden space for many years, so make sure you choose an option that you’ll always love.
The size you want
This is another obvious point to consider, but making sure you choose the right size of water feature for your garden is a must. You don’t want to choose one that dominates the space and leaves little room for anything else, but equally you don’t want to choose one that’s too small to make any impact. A water feature can be a statement piece to your garden, or it could be an addition that adds the finishing touch to your outdoor space. So make sure you really consider the size of the water feature versus the size of your garden.
The cleaning required
Make sure you consider the ongoing maintenance required to keep your water feature looking and working its best. We would suggest speaking to our team to find out what cleaning is required for the specific water feature you’re looking at.
Whether or not plumbing is required
Some water features require complicated plumbing, whereas others simply require plugging in and filling with water. Make sure you consider the level of plumbing you want your water feature to have. If you want a hassle free option, we’d suggest opting for a feature that requires no plumbing at all.
