The idea behind a water fountain is to create harmony between water and design to create a something that fulfills both form and function. In ancient times public fountains were a place to socialize and meet as you collected water needed to your daily chores. Later, they became an integral part of landscaping and design elements. Fountains embody symbolic, artistic, and social ideas, while they refresh and bring interest to an area. The combination of water movement and light make the fountain, whether it is formed from stone, fiberglass, or whatever material you choose. 

In order to understand how to create the best fountain, you need to observe the natural properties of water. You also need to have a basic understanding of engineering and hydraulics.  Once a designer has mastered these skills, they can apply these principles to help the artist reach the full potential of their vision. The greatest fountains in history are a testament to designers being able to turn a dry and solid statue into a dancing and exciting work of living art. Designers can combine the rise and fall of water, art, and hydraulics to create a fountain that will please everyone’s senses! 

Water is involved in every function of life. The world’s surface is made up of about two thirds water, and amazingly only a tiny fraction of this is fresh water, suitable for consumption. Weather is also influenced by water. A human needs water to survive, our cells depend on water to live, but we also crave water with our senses. Viewing it cascading over a waterfall or hearing the pattering of rain during a storm, or dipping out feet into the surf as we stroll along the ocean, water is an integral part of our lives! Water destroys and soothes alike. Civilizations formed based on the location of water, trade resulted due to waterways, man has always tried to control and develop bodies of water to suit their needs!
