Water features for birds and humans

John Kelly / The Washington Post

Thanks to Washington Post columnist John Kelly for the excellent article about garden water features. We are always thrilled to see how much water features are loved by both our clients and wildlife. Contrary to conventional wisdom, you don’t need a lot of space to install a water feature regardless of how urban your space might be. In the past few years, we’ve done projects ranging from small, pondless waterfalls in city rowhouses to farm ponds in rural settings.

Next to planting more native plants, a water feature is one of the best things you can do in your garden to enhance habitat.
