Gardening with Water Elements Water elements in gardening can take the form of waterfalls, ponds, fountains, or pools. All of those can be enhanced by rock, natural mulch, and elements like lighting, plants, or even live fish. Having a water feature in your garden can enhance the mood and atmosphere of the space, making it much more relaxing and inviting for you and your guests. One of the most important things to consider in gardening is probably the location. Certain types of plants and fish need plenty of sunlight, so places in direct light away from trees and bushes are likely the best place. This will also help to prevent leaves and debris from collecting in the water features. When planning for a water garden first decides the size of the water feature you want. This will depend partially on how much money you are willing to invest in your space since water features can get pricey the more features you add. Also consider the size of your property, and the amount of time you want to spend with maintaining your water feature or features. One of the main difficulties with water is keeping water clear of algae.
