How-To-Do-It.... No matter if your garden is big or small, having a fountain can transform an ordinary space into an extraordinary one. Whether it’s large with lots of jets, or small with just a trickle, a fountain makes a strong focal point. Depending on the particular fountain, the sound effects can be soothing or exciting.
Mini Oasis If space is limited, a small fountain, bubbling millstone or half-barrel or trough filled with water and aquatic plants can be a good option. Place your feature by a seat or close to the house where it will be visible from the window. When planting a miniature pool, take care to avoid vigorous plants and rely on small, compact plants like pygmy waterlilies.
