The most appealing focal points draw your attention in and hold it for as long as they can. The more creative and attractive they are, the more they will stand out and be noticed.
Water features are far and away the most popular focal points. Ponds, pools, and bird feeders draw the attention of the eye and captivate the imagination of the heart. Enhancing this effect is as simple as making the water flow via fountains and running streams which also provide an audiological focal point that captivates the ears as well.
Another popular focal point to include are raised flower beds that showcase a particularly desired plant variety. Raised beds add both texture and color within the landscape. In turn, this creates a stunning contrast in the palette. This contrast can be made even stronger by designing a flower bed whose materials compliment walkways and patios, but whose shapes and lines are unique to the flower bed.
