    1. Location

    One of the most important decisions that you will need to make is where the water feature will be installed on the property.

    2. Power Source

    It is important to keep in mind that not all water features use the same type of power source and that you will need to select a water feature that has the right kind of power source for your wants and needs. In most cases, water features will either be solar powered or will require being hardwired or plugged into an electrical outlet.

    Similar to other types of home improvement projects, it is a good idea to figure out a budget for your water feature before committing to the project. Make sure to keep in mind that the overall cost will vary based on the size, type, and material used to construct the water feature, as well as any extras incorporated into the water feature such as fish and plants.

    Depending on the type of water feature you want to install, it may need to be hooked up to the house’s water supply in order to run. If you are wanting to put in a water feature that will not have easy access to the house’s water supply, consider choosing a water feature that can be filled with a hose and does not need a permanent connection.
