You can certainly have a water garden in the shade, but you may have trouble finding shade-loving aquatic plants. If plants are not important to you, set your garden in the shade. If you want flowering plants such as water lilies or marsh marigolds, you'll need to find a spot that gets at least 4-6 hours of direct sunshine.

Best wishes with your water garden!
