From natural-looking streams to architectural fountains, water features are important focal points in the landscape, and some Minneapolis/St. Paul homeowners are opting to have more than one.
Some homeowners will put a bubbler at the front entry to greet guests. Others place them close to outdoor living spaces or near a fire. Some water features are near swimming pools, hung on garden walls, or are fountainhead sprays hidden in a pool deck. Even the smallest spaces can have a water feature. Containers and urns serve quite nicely as self-contained fountains.
The motion and sound of water is hypnotic and soothing. It also serves a purpose – to mask street and neighborhood noises. Pondless stone-column bubblers, waterfalls, streams, and fountains can be simple or dramatic.
