After painstakingly combing through this garden section I could not find a thread highlighting water features. Be it pond, waterfall, etc. I have always been a huge advocate of having some type of water feature in the landscape. Aside from their being a soothing welcome addition to one's space, they also serve as a lure for migratory birds, dragonflies, toads, frogs and numerous other critters.
I have always had some type of water feature incorporated into my landscape and take great joy in the soothing affect they provide. I have to drum up some pics of my pond when I get my photo host site in order.
In the meantime, please feel free to post your favorites or inquire about advice in implementing one into your world.
I agree K2. I would have a problem with confining the fish just as I have a problem with caged birds.
Bixa, being the resourceful person that you are, might you find a tub of some kind to have a small water feature? Your water features when you lived here were inspirational and led me to putting a pond in here. It was one of the first projects we embarked on just after acquiring our home. It remains one of the places I go and sit to relax and entertain. (Over the past couple of years we have had a problem with a great egret who comes and picks off the fish despite my efforts to camouflage. This past year he was early and I had not placed the baffle I designed to deprive him from dining here. We have named him Ernest.)
