Wow your neighbours with a wonderful garden water feature…

Gardens are in bloom, courtyards are the new sitting rooms, and we are quite taken with what you can do with water outdoors. Whether you have a house garden or balcony box, a splash of H2O can make your outdoor space feel super-zen or wild and playful. Here are our top Pinterest picks of the most inviting water features around?

1.?Add a little feng shui to your life with a simple pool of water.

2. Hard to believe a pool this gorgeous is?man-made.

3. But sometimes all you really need to make a garden look pretty is a big old trough.

4. You may be all over bird baths but what about a sweet butterfly feeder?

5. This cool courtyard works really well in an urban environment.

6. Living in an apartment? Fear not, this cool hack called pond box means you can have a minipond, whatever floor you live on.

7. Rainwater is an incredible resource, so make the most of it with some nice-looking rain barrels.

8. Finally, if all you want to use water for is to relax, why not try a stone Jacuzzi? Cocktails not included, but have a look here for suggestions.

Loving these pins? Have a look at our board for tons more inspiration, and follow us on?Pinterest for even more inspiring home and garden ideas.
