Water Features for Your Backyard

Water Features for Your Backyard
Enjoy the water from your own backyard! If you need a water feature, you’ve got plenty of options.

There’s something about living by the water that attracts people. Water, one of the most basic human needs, is soothing and refreshing by sight alone. Even if you don’t live by a body of water, you can always bring some form of it to your backyard. Below, you’ll find several water features for your backyard that can fit just about any property.

Bird Bath

Starting simple, one can add a bird bath as a focal point of the backyard. This detail is small but substantial and makes for great bird watching. Bird baths come in many colors, textures, and styles, and help sustain the local wildlife with bathing and drinking water.


A pond can be small or sizable, depending on how much space you have. It can also be above ground or in-ground, the former style working well for modern yards and portability, and the latter looking more natural. Ponds require proper placement, aeration, and maintenance.


Water features for your backyard can also include ones with sound and movement. A bubbling, splashing fountain can be great or small, fit into a corner or stand in the center. Fountains can add some cooling relief to you, your patio, and your plants.


If your backyard has a slope, consider making it into a waterfall feature. Could this idea work for your yard? Like with a pond or fountain, it will need a pump to recycle water continuously. It will likely have two small pools, one at the top and one at the bottom. One can achieve the best backyard waterfall with the help of Michael Bryan Landscapes.

Hot Tub

On hot and cold days alike, you might just want to relax. A hot tub, jacuzzi, or spa can easily sit on your patio or deck, available for year-round soaks. Plus, it’s healthy. Hot tubs and other luxury baths help relieve aching muscles, boost your heart health, and improve sleep.

Swimming Pool

Lastly, if you really want to immerse yourself into your backyard water feature, try a swimming pool on for size! Michael Bryan Landscapes can design and install a beautiful custom pool with a surrounding platform for you.
