The Challenges of Water Features

Check out the article in today's (July 27th's) Washington Post Real Estate Section, The do’s and don’ts of back yard aquatic installations.

The article describes how "Washington-area homeowners are using waterfalls, fountains and ponds to provide them a respite from the noise and stress of busy lives."  The sight, sound and cooling effect of still or bubbling water brings tranquility to even the most urban garden spaces.  The author points out that landscape water features do require maintenance and can present challenges, but emphasizes that proper planning and construction methods will keep complications and maintenance costs to a minimum.
