After adding a water fountain to my backyard patio, a friend added one to hers that I noticed at a friendly gathering. The first thing everyone seemed to comment on was how the water fountain complimented her garden and tied in the backyard so beautifully.
The sound of the fountain actually calmed the mood and everyone was just relaxed. We just sat around the patio and had a good time. My friend mentioned about how much more time she has been spending outside, reading, doing crosswords puzzles and bird watching. I would have to say everyone was commenting on how much they loved the soothing sounds of the water fountain.
Selecting a Garden Water Fountain
A garden is always a very personal environment. While some individuals may prefer outdoor fountains that are very large and which take advantage of the available space, others will prefer more subtle designs that can be integrated into the flora itself. Either way, these garden water features offer a great deal to the environment.
Large Garden Water Fountains
These are excellent choices for the central features in gardens. They are used as the main attraction in one's little corner of paradise and can create a very upscale feel. The designs which feature multiple bowls, in particular, create an Old World charm and hearken back to more elegant ages.
Small Outdoor Fountains
An outdoor garden water fountain does not have to be the most striking feature in a garden. Adding a small fountain offers a unique touch that can bring out other elements of the surroundings. A small water feature can be integrated into other garden features to create a very unique and relaxing feel.
Installing Garden Water Fountains
Fountains are not difficult to install. Most individuals can set up an outdoor fountain within an hour and have it up and running shortly after. The fun of installing an outdoor water fountain oftentimes starts when one begins to integrate it into the environment. This project, like all things related to gardening, deserves to be done with patience and creativity.
