20 Small Garden Water Feature Ideas To Add A Little More Zen To Your Life

Flowing water is not only beautiful to admire, but the sound is very relaxing. And, if you have a small garden, terrace or patio, strategically adding a water feature is also likely to attract birds, wildlife and hummingbirds. In fact, water features are one of the five big garden trends for 2018. Water features can be added to even the smallest of spaces—all you need is some sort of vessel or bowl. If you have an outlet nearby, a small pump can circulate the water. Or, you can simply have a still water feature with a couple of aquatic plants and a goldfish to keep the mosquito larvae at bay.
