The dramatic and geometrical shape of this fountain and pool combination feature is great for those who need a water feature that flows with an industrial style home. 

6.Black and bold

It's quite unusual to make a fountain black, but this beauty really adds some drama to the space, especially combined with the spout fountain design. 

7. Zen

The globe on the right is a small fountain, trickling down into the Zen-garden rocks below. The tropical plants which the foutain waters solidfy the relaxing atmosphere.

Again, black can make any garden design a little more bold. As a bonus, this simple fountain will come in nicely under budget. 

9. Rock pool

There's a real sense of solid, stable presence in this garden, thanks to the textured rock wall and matching water pools. 

10. Desert rock

For a brighter look, use lighter stones in your water feature. They reflect light and remind one of the heat of a desert oasis. 

11. Subtle flow

If a fountain isn't for you, a small pool of water adds some serenity to a space, without require much maintenance, or making noise.

Don't be afraid to extend your entertaining space by placing the pool somewhat away from the main gathering spot. Of course, what this space is really lacking is a fence. Luckily, we have 23 cheap fence ideas that would work great.
