Home Improvement & Maintenance Tips : How to Design a Water Feature


Hi, I’m Tim Gipson and I’m going to talk to
you about how to design a water feature. The first thing when considering to put in a water
feature in your backyard is to get an idea on how you want it to look and what kind of
water feature you want. Take for instance, this water feature here has a little water
fall that goes with it. Other water features could be with a fountain or a combination
of the two so determining that and getting those ideas you’re really going to need to
look at some ideas that are out there and also look at the lay of your land. Now, in
this particular case we have a little bit of a higher elevation coming down into this
lower elevation so it suits well to have a little bit of a water fall feature coming
down into a smaller pond. One thing you might want to do in trying to get some ideas of
the type of water feature you want to put in is there are several do-it-yourself shows
on TV that run several segments on landscaping. You can watch those, you can also go on the
internet to find several ideas on doing water features and several of your home improvement
stores also will have several examples that are set up or some design ideas. Then you
can even go and consult a landscape designer or a landscape architect if you really want
to do a high end. For most practical purposes, adding a water feature is something that you
can do that will add a nice area to your backyard, kind of bring in some natural elements and
is really not that difficult to do as long as you make it tie in with some of your existing
features. So again, to get some ideas on how to design your water feature you want to look
at some features that are out there, take into consideration the natural layout of your
property and land and you want to add something that brings in some elements of moving water
such as a water fall or a water fountain and if you do that you that you can come up with
some really nice, unique features for your backyard. So I’m Tim Gipson with how to design
