The soft splash of a fountain brings life and motion to the backyard. Fountains were originally of a purely functional purpose connecting to springs and used to provide drinking water and water for bathing and washing to the residents of cities, towns and villages. Until the 19th century fountains depended on the natural gravitational flow of water in order to function. Today outdoor fountains provide a way to add ambience that plants and flowers can’t. A fountain might add beauty, drama, serenity, or romance, but it most definitely provides a focal point. Fountains give a space action, movement and sound.
There are many things to consider when purchasing a fountain, a few of them are:
1. Style – Wall fountain or pedestal or something in between all add a different personality to a space
2. Water Flow – Bubbling or cascading fountains, Spilling fountains or Jet type fountains are several to consider
3. Scale – This should be an important consideration when purchasing a fountain. As a primary garden focal point, fountains are often chosen that are too small.
Also consider that unless you plan to run your fountain through solar power it will need access to an outlet.
