An outdoor water fountain is a great complement to your garden or other outdoor space. Not only are water fountains elegant, they also have a soothing aura about them that is very relaxing.
Whenever someone thinks of a garden water fountain, it is assumed that the water feature will be placed in the backyard living area. Many fountains are placed in the front yard as a welcoming gesture for guests and as an appealing main attraction to the house. With proper placement in the front entryway, garden water fountains create a pleasant invitation to all who walk past or who come to visit.
People choose to use them in the center of a circular driveway, some fountains look great right at the front of the house with the door location more in the background, courtyards are a great place to house a garden water fountain or another popular spot for an entryway fountain is placing it on either side of the front door. This placement immediately makes guests feel warm and welcome. It is almost like the fountain is saying, "Leave your stress at the door and come relax inside."
Wherever your placement in the entryway, you can create a harmonious and peaceful atmosphere just as easily in a front garden as in a backyard living area.
If you do choose to use a garden water fountain
at the front of your house instead of the back it is best to choose something that is attractive and that will draw attention as a centerpiece to your yard.
