Choosing The Right Style of Water Fountain
Choosing a style for your water fountain should depend on a few important things:
The style of your garden
Whether you already have an existing garden or you’re looking to create one, a water fountain is the perfect addition. Because there are so many styles of water fountains out there, you want to make sure that you have a garden concept already in mind so that the water fountain doesn’t look out of place. If your garden is more in a modern style, then maybe a traditional style fountain isn’t the right choice. If you already have existing garden accents such as planters or statues, then you want your garden water fountain to complement those existing features. Consider plants, flowers, stones, fences, wall decor, and overall garden concept before you decide on which water fountain to choose. You want your water fountain to seamlessly fit into the style and design so that nothing feels out of place.
You will want to make sure that if you have existing garden accents such as planters or statues, that your garden water fountain will complement those existing features.
For classic statues like religious figurines or simple urns, Classic Tiered Water Fountains typically work the best. For modern rock gardens in desert locations, more contemporary fountains that have sleek lines and very little detailing will help keep your water feature in tune with your existing landscape.
The outdoor atmosphere you want
Imagine throwing a BBQ or family event. How do you want people to feel when they step outside your back door and into your garden, yard, patio, or general outdoor area? Serenity? Playfulness? Colorful? It’s important that you take into consideration how you want to utilize your current outdoor space before you buy a water fountain.
Also keep in mind pets and small children. How they will interact with the water fountain, and how will that affect the concept of the space? Will it have practical, functional use? You want the water fountain to look good, but practicalities need to be taken into consideration.
Your own personal taste
No matter the style of your outdoor space, remember your own personal tastes and desires. A water fountain is an investment that gives your home the perfect personal touch. What matters most is that you will enjoy admiring your outdoor water fountain and its place in your home. Make sure to keep this in mind when shopping for water fountains!

Materials of Outdoor Water Fountains
Water features for the garden can be made out of many different materials. The most popular materials include:
- Cast Stone
- Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete
The material you choose for your fountain will depend on the look and need you desire.
- Cast stone fountains are heavier and may require additional help for installation, but they provide a water feature that will have a very long life and will weather naturally.
- Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete fountains are an alternative material that will require less help for installation as the composite material allows the garden fountain to be lighter in weight, but still durable with its concrete counterparts.
- Fiberglass fountains are very light in weight and easy to move around your outdoor space when you want to change up your landscape or bring the fountain indoors for winterizing.
Outdoor water fountains are a growing trend in many backyards and landscapes. It doesn’t matter if your garden is perfectly pruned or just an empty space — an outdoor water fountain always adds a focal point to any outdoor space, backyard, and even front yard. They are an alluring feature for any style of home and always add a calming, serene element to the space. You won’t ever regret adding a gorgeous fountain to complete the look of your home’s outdoor area.
The Sounds of Water Fountains
