Garden Fountains - Keep Up with What's Available!
Welcome to Best in Garden fountains! Adding one outdoors, indoors
or both will certainly enhance your décor as well as provide you
with soothing sounds to make your space inviting.
Outdoor Garden Fountain Selection:
For selection, there are many outdoor fountains for your garden or backyard.
Choices include outdoor wall fountains, floor, tabletop as well as decorative
statue fountains made from a variety of materials including: concrete,
stone, bronze, wood, ceramic, copper, slate, ceramic, fiberglass and resin.
Solar water fountains are growing in popularity. With a somewhat limited
selection for now, you can still purchase and enjoy sun operated waterfall
fountains, solar bird baths and solar
run pond jets. These solar powered systems require sunlight to operate
and can save you money in the long run.
For a permanent garden location, heavyweight and durable materials such
as concrete, stone, and bronze can last forever. Bronze
fountains and statues are very elegant and Henri Fountains Elite Line
(Henri Studios) features beautiful European inspired fountainry with statues
of Lion Heads, Children, Cherubs, Dolphins and more. For the look of bronze,
brand: Brass Baron manufactures exceptional brass pond and pool spitters
featuring cranes, dolphins and frogs.
Henri also makes lightweight and true cast stone fountains. Lightweight
materials like acrylic resin offer an affordable alternative replicating
the look of sandstone, concrete and such. Manufacturer, Beckett Fountains,
produces a vast amount of lightweight water features, as do others.
Keep in mind that in addition to enjoying a garden fountain you may also
want to at some point build a pond. This isn't as difficult as it sounds
especially since the marketplace is filled with kits and components that
include pond pumps, liners, filters
and even pond lights.
Indoor Fountain Selection:
Interior fountains are available in all sizes (mini, small, medium, and
large) and come with all of the essential plumbing and pumps. Indoor water
fountains are designed to be easy to set up. In most cases requiring only
the need to add water and plug in. This is the case with most floor and
table top fountains. For indoor wall
mounted systems you will need to mount on your wall.
Brands such as Water Wonders manufacture floor, table top and wall fountains
utilizing copper, slate, stones, glass and chrome. These water fountains
are exquisite and not only add decoration, but are works of art! And for
works of art, Harvey Gallery, produces a vast selection of hand painted
wall art fountains made with resin/acrylic and copper. Other quality designers
and brands: Nayer Kazemi and Kenroy.
Garden Fountain Accessories:
If you are a do-it-yourself person, you may enjoy the creative challenge
of building your own fountain. Building a table top fountain is an easy
way to begin and you can buy all the necessary accessories: bowl, submersible
pump, piping, pebbles rocks, slate tiers and more online. You can also
purchase fountain lights and foggers (misters) for effect.
If you are currently enjoying a garden or indoor water fountain, parts
may fail over time and need to be replaced. You can buy replacement pumps,
lights, aerators and such to keep your fountain running smoothly. Fountain
cleaning products such as: Small Fountain Clear and Large Fountain Clear
(safe for humans, pets and fish) helps to ensure clear, sparkling water.
This treatment will keep your water filters and pumps stay free from organic
