A small pond or brook is a nice addition to a garden. The sound of running water has a relaxing effect. Not all gardens are large enough for these, but even a small water feature is welcome. Fountains are a lovely addition to any garden setting. Any of these features can be made small, and they add a feel of luxury to the area. Decorating them is also an important step in creating the perfect garden.
Many small ponds are used as a haven for live fish. Watching fish swim and feeding them is always a charming way to pass time. Not every small pond will be large enough to contain living fish. Adding ceramic fish may be the best option. Ceramics are sealed pieces that are non-porous. This means that they can be safely added to a small pond. They will have to be taken out and cleaned occasionally, but they do not need feeding.
A fountain is relaxing and can be almost any size. For those who wish to have a small water feature, there are many options available. Adding a base where water can run down to look like a brook is a lovely way to spread out a water feature. Ceramic rocks can be made to look like moss covered stones. If a small pool is formed, artificial ceramic fish in a variety of colors can rest on the sandy bottom. Varying the colors of the ceramic flowers along the side of the brook may also be a colorful option.
There are many ways to enhance a garden with a water feature. Over time, ceramics are a wonderful way to decorate. They are a material that is baked in a kiln and have resistant surfaces when it comes to flowing water. They will repay the imaginative gardener with many years of colorful existence.
