Reasons you should have a water feature in your garden

Many people consider adding a water feature to their garden but are put off by the expense, work involved, or the lack of space. However, these things don’t have to put a stop to your water feature dreams. The truth is, a water feature can be whatever you want it to be. Generally, they are cheaper to run than you might expect, can be as big or small as you want, but if you are worried about the installation you could contact ALDMN landscape design to get some help.

A water feature is a welcome addition to any garden. Here are some of the reasons you should get one.

Adds Value

While you may not be thinking about selling up now, you never know what could happen in the future. There could be many different reasons you decide to relocate, including moving for work, needing more space to extend your family, or struggling with the amount of space you have once the kids have left home. In any of these situations, if you choose to sell up you should try to get the best price possible. Adding a water feature is a great way to increase the value of your home.

If you have a Koi Carp pond, there is also the value of the fish themselves to think about. Bought small, they are inexpensive, but if looked after they can grow to be worth thousands.


The sound of a water feature, whether it’s part of a large pond or a small trickling fountain, can be exceptionally relaxing. There’s nothing better than lying in the garden in the summer time, being soothed by the steady sound of running water.

Wide Range of Styles

Water features are available in a huge range of styles, shapes, and sizes. So, if it’s something you are interested in there is bound to be something to suit your taste that fits in with the rest of your garden décor.


Ponds can house many different lifeforms. You’ll get the joy of watching your fish grow and change, with colorful detail emerging on their scales, as well as seeing passing birds stop for a drink and tadpoles swimming around. Enhancing your pond with water plants can help attract further wildlife and add to its beauty.


Ponds and water features are beautiful, as are the creatures and plants that live and grow in them. Water can also be a great way to make your garden look larger, both by adding a reflective surface and a focus point.


Water can also create its own microclimate. A water feature can help make your garden space feel cooler on a hot sunny day, while also warming it up when the sun goes down. Perfect for those evenings entertaining

If you have decided to install a water feature, take some time to look at the different styles, sizes, and options before you start. Then get planning so you’ve got your water feature online and ready to enjoy in time for the summer.
