Ideas for Water Features in Small Spaces

If you are looking for inspiration for how to get a water feature into a tight space, the experts at Fontana Ponds & Water Features can help. Some great ideas for water features for small yards or gardens include:

Compact Fishponds

Ponds do not have to be massive, sprawling water features that take up the majority of a yard. They can easily be made compact, contained, and simple. Whether you have a small fishpond that is set in the ground and surrounded by rocks or an above-ground pond designed using masonry, there are loads of options that will allow you to keep koi or other fish without taking up too much space.

Vertical Water Features

Water features that stretch upwards and fall into a small basin can be a great option for gardens with limited space. Water walls or water curtains can be a great option, as they take up very little floor space and offer the soothing sounds of falling water.

Built-In Water Features

Depending on the type of building you have on your property, it is often possible to design a water feature that is built into your home’s exterior. Having a waterfall coming out the side of your home or a brick fountain that sits right up against a wall can solve any space issues that you might have with a water feature for a smaller yard.

Pondless Waterfalls

Pondless waterfalls are one of the best and most natural looking options for small yards. These water features use reservoirs that are buried underneath layers of rock, so no space is required for water to collect. This also makes them a great option for homes with children or animals.
