When creating a modern water feature design consideration should be given to clean lines and geometric shapes to ensure that the feature sits comfortably within the landscape. Various options are possible, features can include rendered walls with water shoots that cascade into rectangular pools, a simple water rill with bubbling fountains, or a simple free standing stainless steel or glass water feature, the choice is endless.
When designing a modern water feature it is also important to consider the positioning of the mechanics. Water cascades, pools and rills may require filtration depending upon size so it is important to consider how these will be housed within the overall design. For fountains and water cascades it is important to consider the size of the reservoir as moving water has a high evaporation rate. Lighting can also be incorporated to add dramatic effect to the feature in the evening.
