1. Bubblers

If you have a smaller outdoor living space but still want to add a water feature, a bubbler may be a great option! Bubblers are small and typically very low maintenance, but you still get the relaxing sounds of running water. As the name implies, these water features bubble water instead of spouting a stream up into the air. Another great aspect of bubblers is that they do not require another pond or reservoir to work, as there is a basin in the ground that circulates the water to them. They are also easily customizable and come in different shapes and sizes, so you can create a bubbler that fits your property's style.

2. Fountains

Fountains are an incredibly popular water feature that can be customized to fit your preferences. There are a variety of shapes and sizes, and you can even choose how you want the water to flow, whether spouting up into the air or cascading down a wall or sloped surface. You can add a large, elegant fountain and have it be the focal point of your outdoor living space, or opt for something smaller and more subtle. Fountains also have a higher water pressure, so you will always be able to hear the relaxing sound of flowing water.

3. Ponds

Another dynamic water feature you can add to your outdoor living space is a pond. No matter the size of your property, you can add a pond that fits it perfectly, as its dimensions and shape are highly customizable. Ponds can be shallow with simple decorations or deep with highly elaborate landscaping, depending on your aesthetic preferences. You can also make ponds look natural with the addition of wildlife, like fish and plants. Ponds offer an atmosphere of serenity and relaxation, so they make a great addition to any outdoor space.

4. Waterfalls

Waterfalls are beautiful and stunning features for any outdoor living space. Classic waterfalls tend to need more space and are often paired with pools or ponds for the water to fall into and collect. You can decide whether you want it to look simple with a smaller stream of water or more complex with heavier streams and impressive sets of rocks and landscaping.

Pondless waterfalls are a great option if you would prefer not to have a standing body of water on your property.

5. Water Gardens

Water gardens, also known as aquatic gardens, are great additions if you're looking to add a gorgeous touch of nature to your outdoor living space. You can add a variety of wildlife to water gardens to really enhance the naturalistic atmosphere on your property, including water lilies, koi fish, turtles, and much more. You can also incorporate a bubbler or waterfall into the design of your water garden to enjoy the serene sound of running water.
