Water features are a great addition to every type of backyard, no matter the size.
Water features can improve both the aesthetics and functionality of your garden, no matter if it’s big or small. There is a way to fit a perfect water feature even if you own a very small backyard or garden – all you need is a bit of creativity.
Water elements are always decorative and according to Feng Shui, water is a symbol of abundance and helps the good energy flow better.
It could help you attract money and happiness. Your own little wishing well or fountain of fortune? It is up to you to decide which style fits your backyard better.
Backyard water features are also easy for installation so you don’t have to wait for too long to be ‘’one with the universe’’.
So today we gathered some interesting ideas for creating your own micro-universe where the good energy is flowing with no limits. A place where you can relax, listen to the bird’s chirp and get away when everyday problems start being unbearable.
Your own oasis of peace, no matter the size can help you calm your mind. So when the storm is approaching, try to enjoy the rain.
If you have a small backyard that needs divine intervention, we recommend the following
A customizable Niagara Falls for your backyard – not that loud but pretty majestic. You can have your own tropical paradise and enjoy the soothing waterfall sounds. And we haven’t mentioned the best thing so far – they are not just decorative, but also energy-efficient, low maintenance and easy to install. Combine it with greenery and your own little rainforest is ready.

A fountain of fortune
Fountains are simply classic when it comes to outdoor water features. Water fountains may vary with their style and design. Yet, they are giving a vibe of luxury no matter what. They are decorative and they will complement greenery and landscaping.
