Water & Aquatics
Well known for their calming properties, water features create a stunning display in your garden, home or any other space, for example, offices or entrances. Water features can be used both indoors & outdoors where there is access to electricity (some are solar powered allowing them to stand alone). The features come in a wide range of styles, from modern ones such as the stainless steel sphere or tubes, to more traditional urn style features or pouring bowls.
Every garden needs a water feature. It could be a clear pool, quietly reflecting the blue sky above. May be you prefer a pond bringing wildlife into the garden or a splashing fountain cooling the air on hot days. No matter what you plan you can find exactly the water feature you need on THE Gardening Website.
THE Gardening Website lists suppliers of all you need to create your water feature – pumps, pool liners, planting containers, bridges, water lilies, oxygenators.
In a large garden you can have a large pool, but in the small garden you can still have a water feature. Fill a trough with water to grow your water lilies or grow water hyacinths in a pot of water. Construct a waterfall on the rock garden, have water dripping from a lion's mask on the wall. Whatever the water feature you want, you will find it on THE Gardening Website, who supplies it and where to buy it.
There are many different types of water features but they can be broadly categorised into the following:
• Stainless Steel Water Features - clean and modern, these features look great indoors and outdoors. They are weather resistant and can add a beautiful effect to any space. The mirror properties of stainless steel mean that the effect goes beyond the feature itself, as it will reflect lights and mirror the surrounding area.
• Resin Water Features - poly resin is the material that these features are made from. They create a realistic rock or stone effect and can be moulded into any shape and texture. Resin features are much lighter than their rock counterparts allowing them to be moved easily and bought at a lower cost than a carved rock equivalent.
• Glass Water Features - glass features are usually lit from the inside creating not only a great effect with water but from the light itself. Many have colour changing bulbs or LEDs that provide an interesting and soothing effect.
• Granite / Stone Features - some of the more original features are made from lumps of granite or stone, either rough with a hole drilled through, or polished. Some can come with lights inset into the stone.
Most features require very little installation or maintenance as they come fully self contained. All you need to do is plug them in and add water!
