7 Reasons To Add Water To Your Garden

Water gardening is our passion and we want it to be yours too. Check out our list of 7 reasons to add water to your garden below.


1. Beautiful sounds

Every water feature, fountain, waterfall or spitter will create their own unique sounds to fill your garden with. Relaxing in a garden with the sounds of trickling water is the perfect way to while away an afternoon



2. Invite in Wildlife

Any type of water gardening will begin to encourage wildlife into the garden, whether that’s a full blown pond or a free standing water feature. In summer months you could have birds bathing, frogs spawning and beautiful dragonflies scattering your garden. Perfect.

3. Enjoy the garden day and night

Lighting in water features, pond pumps and filters allow you to really make the most of the garden day and night. Create a beautiful atmosphere for a romantic anniversary dinner or keep your garden party going right on in to the evening, the possibilities are endless.

4. Fish keeping

One of the most obvious reasons to have water in the garden is to create a space to keep fish. Fish keeping is an incredibly relaxing and rewarding hobby and fish are much quieter pets than dogs and cats! Maintaining the perfect underwater world for them is also a fantastic way to get yourself out in the garden all year round.

5. Family time

Water in the garden is the perfect way to get the kids or grandkids out in the garden. Leave the screens and internet inside and encourage outdoor family time searching for insects, caring for fish and encouraging an interest in wildlife.
