To bring a decorative and refreshing touch to the garden, add a fountain or a pond; your garden will then take the very natural look that brings you an ambience full of peace and serenity. Here are some innovative ideas that inspire you to create a water area in your garden to enjoy your outdoors in spring & summer more than any time before. If you are looking for a small & very calm water area, you can opt for a low basin in which there will only be a few centimeters of water; in the center, a gentle jet brings a soft movement that creates circles over the entire surface of the water. A very peaceful & Zen effect is guaranteed. If you have space in your garden, you can create a very big water pond that accommodates fish and vegetation. You can install water lilies, and fake or real plants to decorate your pond in a very original style. To make water decorate your entire garden, you can choose a multi-level pool and then create a path of water in your area. The sound of water will be very soothing & pleasing for a romantic atmosphere in your outdoors. Another interesting idea to create an aquatic touch in the garden is to go for a wooden basin that can be placed beautifully between plants. The size of the wood basin will depend on the space of the garden. Also to decorate a minimalist garden with an aquatic touch, choose a water basin in raw materials like stone with a sleek design. It will be more aesthetic if you add some subtle white flowers inside the basin to decorate the water and bring a very refined look. If you like Zen garden decorations, go for a water basin in stone in which water comes with bamboo to blend both natural elements together: stone & plants.
