Water Features 

Water is a real asset in a garden and a great way to encourage wildlife. We usually have a stock of old or unusual items that can be used to create unique water features, ranging from water-holding stone troughs and salvaged water tanks to wall masks and formal centre fountains. Making water features work often requires imagination and effort, but can be hugely rewarding
