When it comes to water features, many homeowners tend to think of ecosystem ponds or large swim ponds. Though these are popular choices for a variety of landscapes and properties, they may not be the best option for homes with smaller yards. Though a lack of space can be discouraging, there are many beautiful water features for small spaces to consider. As leading providers of large and small water features, the team at Fontana Ponds & Water Features knows the positive impact a well-placed water feature can have on your property. That is why we have compiled a list of water features that work well for small yards to help you choose the right option for your vision.

4 Great Water Features for Small Yards
The following water features are a great fit for most small yards and properties with limited green space:
1. Stacked Slate Spheres/Walls
These compact water features are impressive regardless of where they are placed in your yard. Whether you want a small slate sphere to be tucked into your garden or a large slate wall to become the focal point of your yard, there are many options to choose from. Most options also feature built-in lighting, allowing you to enjoy them day and night.
2. Miniature Water Gardens
Also known as patio ponds, miniature water gardens are a popular choice for yards that largely consist of a patio or deck. These gardens act as a small-scale pond, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of a delicate ecosystem from the comfort of your deck. Small fish—like rosy reds—can also be added to some water gardens to further enhance their appeal.
3. Fire Fountains
While fire and water do not typically mix, fire fountains allow them to coexist and create a stunning display. These units combine the pleasing sound of water running over/around pebbles with a central flame, giving you the best of both worlds.
4. Decorative Fountains
Decorative fountains are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, allowing you to choose the ideal option for your space and preferred style. Urns, stone pillars, and bowls are just some examples of the shapes available, and each shape is offered in different sizes. Whether you want a series of bowls spilling into each other or a few small urns in each corner of your yard, the possibilities are endless with decorative fountains.
