How to make the most of your Water Feature

With so much time spent in our gardens this summer, it’s no surprise that there’s been an increase in people creating garden water features. This is great news for garden wildlife but will also have a direct impact – positive or negative – on finances, health and relationships. Suddenly it becomes about more than the refreshing tinkling of water splashing over stones as you sunbathe or a haven for wildlife. Here are 5 Tips for Water Features to make sure you get it right.

Water Feature Location

The position of your water feature is vital – the best locations are in the southeast or the north.

Water Direction

The direction of the water flow should be towards your house. If it goes the wrong way, then you may be sending money/energy out.

Water Quality

It should be fresh, moving water, so you need a pump of some sort to circulate the water. The pump must be kept running too, otherwise you damage the flow of financial energy. A solar powered pump could be a good option if you don’t have a power source but this depends on how much sun your garden gets.

Water Flow

The strength of the water flow is important: if it’s too fast, then you may not be able to cope with the energy it brings. However, if it’s too slow, it won’t be strong enough to benefit your finances. If your water feature leaks then your finances are draining away too.

Water Feature Sound

The water must sound pleasant. If it doesn’t sound relaxing, then the energy isn’t right.


Finances are the primary area of benefit from a water feature but if the water position is wrong it could affect the health of a family member or relationships too, so proceed with caution. (It is always safer to have someone who knows traditional Feng Shui help you with this to avoid costly mistakes.)
