Water in the Garden

There is nothing like a water feature to take your mind off of summer heat.    Still water is reflective and  calms the spirit.

The sound of moving water can drown out nearby unwanted sounds such as traffic, barking dogs or loud neighbors.

It is human nature to be drawn to water and there is no better focal point or feature for the garden.
