If you have ever admired the landscaping design of someone else’s Macomb County home, you might have noticed some of their water features. Water features are focal points that can be included in your landscape which include water of some kind. They can be ponds or fountains, or something else entirely. But if you feel that a water feature is out of the question, you may not be considering all of your options.

Here are a few ideas for incorporating water into your landscaping design:

  • Orb fountains. Orb fountains are orbs – or round stones – of various sizes that bubble water out of their tops. The beauty of using orb fountains is that they are attractive without being distracting, and because they come in a variety of sizes, you can purchase smaller ones that might fit within your budget, or you can buy large ones to be focal points of your landscaping design if you have the money to spend. You can even have custom ones made, such as ones made out of bowling balls to be more unique.
  • Bubbling containers. These are similar to the orb fountains in that they are made of stone and bubble water out of their tops, but in this case, they are more like flower pots. In fact, you can even make some out of flower pots of any size. Again, this is an attractive option for those who are operating on a tight budget, or if you have limited space, as bubbling containers of any size can be incorporated into landscaping design for a small yard or a large one.
  • Salvaged lawn ornaments. Old ornaments that lived in your garden or yard can also be transformed into water features. If you have a stone ornament, you can drill a hole through it and affix a pump at the bottom of it. Place it in water and disguise the pump with some other decorative rocks, and you have a new water feature that bubbles water. This is a great idea for those looking to repurpose old lawn ornaments or who, again, are working with limited funds.

As you can see, it is not hard to include water in your Macomb County, Michigan landscaping design. You are only limited by your imagination, as virtually anything can be turned into large and small bubbling water centerpieces that can be great conversation pieces for you and your guests as you enjoy your outdoor gathering place.
