Mill Wheel Water Feature

Typically a mill wheel water feature is one of the simplest forms of water feature available. Usually made from a circular piece of stone or concrete, and despite its plain appearance,  this flat disc can create wonderful and eye catching water effects. Ideally the wheel should be level in order to get a good distribution of running water over the surface area. For added sound effects, place the wheel above the surrounding cobblestones and enjoy the added sound of water echoing as it drains into the reservoir.

A mill wheel water feature is perfectly safe and ideal for family gardens with young children and because the surface water is very shallow, it also makes it the perfect bathing area to attract visiting garden birds. Complete the natural look by planting with a mix of ornamental grasses and ferns.
