Formal Garden Pond
If adding a pond to a formal garden with all hard corners and angles, a simple water feature of the same geometric nature most often works best. The same goes for soft angles, curves, circles, or odd geometric shapes such as stars, triangles, etc. The garden pond is an attention getting element that will seem more dramatic if it is included as part of the main shape and design of the formal garden.
Along with the design considerations of this garden and pond, I really want to point out the stone elements used to create the rest of the landscape. See garden steps and stairs to see some great ideas and pictures of natural stone and manmade steps. Also see rock walls if you're interested in building a beautiful wall like the ones surrounding this formal garden pond and landscape.
