Sphere Water Feature Buyer’s Guide

Design

Sphere water features make a wonderful focal point in the garden and suit both contemporary and traditions schemes well. There are a range of features to choose from and they are made with different material and designs. Stainless steel features are durable and have lovely reflective qualities that add an extra dimension to your garden design. Resin water features are durable and look like stone but are also light and easy to manoeuvre.

Many sphere water features have a reservoir that can be buried in the ground or covered with stones, so you only see the sphere. This looks very effective as the reservoir is hidden from sight. Other designs have a sphere on top of a pillar or plinth that contains the reservoir, and these require no digging or setting up.

Ease of set up

Self-contained water features are nice and simple to set up. They either come with a length of outdoor cable which must be plugged into a suitable outdoor socket or are solar-powered. Once the power is sorted, they can just be filled up and switched on. Some features include a plastic reservoir at the bottom, and this can either be buried in the ground, covered with attractive gravel or other stones, or hidden inside a planter. Some features include a reservoir as part of the design and these are even easier to set up as they require no digging or burying.

The simplest water features are self-contained with an integral reservoir as part of the design and solar-powered. These only require being taken out of the box and filling with water before they are ready to go.

Power source

When choosing a water feature you can go for mains or solar-powered. Mains powered features will need to be plugged into an appropriate outdoor power socket. You may also want to bury or hide the cable safely. The advantage of mains powered water features is that they work all the time, winter and summer, night and day, whatever the weather.

Solar-powered water features either come with an integral solar panel or a separate solar panel. Those with an integral panel are very easy to use and have no wires to worry about. They do, however, need to be placed in a sunny spot in the garden to work best. Those with a solar panel allow you to set up the panel in the sun and have the features at some distance from the panel. Many solar-powered features have a battery that stores extra power, and this can be used to run the solar fountain and lights at night.

The disadvantage of solar-powered water features is that they do, obviously, rely on the sun to work.

Conclusion

Sphere water features add a lovely design element to both modern and traditional gardens. They are self-contained and easy to set up, too. If you want to add the element of water to your garden, with its lovely movement and sound, then a sphere water features will be perfect for the job.

I would recommend the Polished 60cm Stainless Steel Sphere Water Feature as it is beautiful and durable feature that also includes LED lights.
