Fountains add lustre to your garden

If you have not yet considered an outdoor fountain for your garden, you are missing out on an extremely versatile and aesthetically pleasing addition.

Many people have a rigid and out-of-date conception of garden fountains. They do not have to be large and bulky or be the centrepiece of the yard; although that is an option, if you so desire.

But there are many more places for them. Outdoor fountains can fill a drab corner, enliven a walkway, accessorise your deck, or elegantly grace the centre of your garden.

Why would you want to spend money on a garden fountain? There are a wide variety of reasons. If you are interested in creating an aesthetically pleasing garden, nothing will round out your masterpiece like an outdoor fountain.

Flowing water contributes to the serenity of a garden, bringing calm and tranquillity. Even if you don’t have a beautiful yard, and aren’t interested in doing the work to design one, garden fountains are an easy, effective alternative.

They can be centrally placed to draw immediate attention, or located on the periphery to softly enliven the surroundings.

The incredible array of styles and materials makes outdoor fountains even more customised. Firstly, you will want to consider the size of your garden. If you have a rather large yard, you will want to compliment it with a somewhat larger fountain.

However, if you have a small or medium sized yard, you will not want to make it appear even smaller by dwarfing it with an oversized garden fountain. If your yard is extremely small, you may even want to consider a wall fountain, which will take up less space.

Next, you will want to consider the style of the fountain. You should either choose your outdoor fountain based on your furniture, or vice versa, but definitely ensure that all elements of the garden are compatible with the overall décor.

This is especially true for smaller spaces, which are much less forgiving than larger ones. You will also want to consider the plants you choose to surround your fountain; generally, the taller the better.
