A garden fountain provides a sense of ambiance and an aura of serenity and elegance, no matter if the garden is a small little flower bed or a large vegetable garden. There is a size and style of garden water fountain to match anyone’s personal wants and needs. For example, waterfalls look exquisite adjacent to a back patio or deck and wall fountains are perfect for those gardeners who don’t have enough room for a freestanding fountain. The choice is entirely up to you.
For medium to large gardens, bigger, more dramatic garden fountains are quite popular. These tend to be the most popular and recognizable garden decorations with choices ranging from modern looking ones to those reminiscent of Ancient Greece or Pax Romana. These fountains are typically freestanding and manufactured from a host of different material, such as fiberglass, cast iron, stone, copper, ceramic, concrete and wood.
Some water fountains, waterfalls and water walls specifically, don’t look like the typical decor structures you probably picture when you think of a garden fountain. These stylistic waterfalls not only add a one of a kind look to your garden or backyard but they are also shown to improve your health by putting your inner soul at peace. Waterfalls and water walls also release negative ions into the air, purifying the air around you and allowing you to breathe more deeply.
The final type of fountain on this list is those of the wall-mounted variety. Excellent for small garden, these vertical fountains are fixed to a wall. The water then trickles into a large basin underneath. Some styles use a narrow, flattened basin to lessen the space used.
In the end, the only thing that matters is how often you’ll get to enjoy sitting in your backyard, enjoying the sound of water trickling from the fountain. Very few experiences in your daily life will fill you with such as sense of peace. It almost feels like are one with nature and your other senses have been sharpened.
