Garden fountains add a special touch to any environment. They’re beautiful to look at and listening to the sounds of gently splashing water is a great way to push aside your worries of the day. And believe it or not, garden fountains are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform any space into your own private sanctuary.
Once you start looking for garden fountains, you’ll quickly realize that choosing the perfect one is going to be your biggest challenge! With so many beautiful styles, sizes and materials to choose from, your options seem endless. Simple or elaborate multi-tiered garden fountains have always been very popular and the tower style with water cascading down the front of a rectangular-shaped piece of glass or stone is today’s trendy style.
Wall mounted garden fountains are another option, and they’re perfect when space is limited. But even when space isn’t limited, wall mounted styles can really make a statement when placed along the entryway to your home. And there’s more.
They’re lovely to look at and soothing to listen to, but garden fountains are also very easy to maintain. Most are self-contained meaning that you don’t need to hire a plumber to get your fountain up and running. Most are available in either electrical or solar-powered models. With the electrical models, you will need access to an electrical outlet.
Other than that however, simply choose a location, assemble the fountain, plug in the submersible pump that recirculates the water, and fill your garden fountains with water. In literally minutes, you’ll be enjoying the sights and sounds and most importantly, you will instantly begin to feel more relaxed.
To ensure their continued functionality, it’s important to keep garden fountains clean. This is easy too. Simply clear out leaves and other debris regularly so this matter doesn’t clog up the pump and be sure to maintain the water level according to the manufacturer’s instructions. In colder climates, garden fountains need to be emptied and covered to protect against damage.
