You can choose a feature that is as little or as large as you may want. A bubbler rock, vase or small water feature with no pond may be ideal for the little space. While a double or triple falls with stream and water garden will fit perfectly in a large backyard. What’s great is that there is every size and shape in between. Just let your imagination go.
Water features with no ponds are becoming more popular.– Pondless. They consist of a waterfalls and stream with a water retention basin but no pond. This feature can be as long or as short as you have room for in your yard. The water retention basin just has to be large enough to hold enough water to maintain the system.
