Pond with water features

Pond and water features can help to add visual interest and practical enjoyment to your outdoor living space. They are not without their risks, however, and so it is important to observe some safety precautions when shopping for and installing items around your pond.

For any sort of electrical element, you’ll want to ensure that it has been rated for outdoor use, and that items to be placed in water are submersible rated. Look for certification from a safety authority such as CSA, UL, or CUL.

Aside from electrical considerations, keep in mind placement of any items you plan to install outdoors. They could become a potential trip and fall hazard. Other than that, a little common sense will keep you safe and provide you with years of enjoying your backyard pond or pool.

With the above information in mind, in no particular order here are 50 of the ponds and water features that we consider the best, based on available features and average customer ratings and reviews.
