A garden fountain can add beauty to garden. Garden fountains are inexpensive, simple to sustain, and could extraordinarily modify the image of the garden or lawn. There are many different types of garden fountains available in a wide range styles and colors. Wall-mounted garden fountains are an excellent choice for a small garden. These are generally vertical fountains which can be fixed to a wall with hooks or screws. Some might have a large basin for water to trickle into, and others could have a narrow, flattened basin to minimize space used. These fountains typically require use of electrical energy in order to function. For a truly dramatic garden showpiece, a large garden fountain can be an exquisite choice. These spectacular features often display tiers of cascading water surrounded by a large pool. Some are large enough to use as habitats for aquatic animals like koi fish and turtles.
When considering a garden fountain, the materials of the fountain may contribute to the style. Typically, the most inexpensive fountains are made of resin, which is durable, lightweight and can be crafted to resemble stone. Some make use of natural materials, such as river rocks and bamboo. Copper, brass, and bronze are popular choices for metalwork fountains, while some modern-art inspired versions use stainless steel. Ceramic, tile, and stone are excellent choices for larger or more grand, designs. After all, the sound of flowing water, be it rippling or cascading are so relaxing that garden fountains can really add up to the peacefulness and tranquility of outdoors.
