Most garden fountains do not require plumbing. This means you don’t need to make sure your fountain is near a water source. However, many fountains require access to an electrical source to power the pump. If the garden fountain does not need electricity, it is probably solar powered. In this case, make sure the area you want to place your garden fountain has enough access to sunlight for it to work.
If you want to place your fountain on a table or shelf, make sure that it is light enough, or that the surface of the base is strong enough to support the weight. You will also need to secure your fountain to the elevated surface to prevent it from tipping over. For larger models with large pools of water, you must consider the safety of your pets and children.
With so many products on the market, you’re sure to find a garden fountain that perfectly matches your style. You can find a fountain that fits your modern furniture. For example, a minimalist glass fountain would suit a glass garden furniture. Another option is to choose a fountain that matches the plant scheme you have chosen. For example, if you grow bamboo, you might want to buy a fountain that looks oriental.
Many people buy a garden fountain because they like the sound. Running water can be very relaxing. However, if your fountain barely makes a sound or makes too much sound, you may not be satisfied with your purchase.
Easy to clean
Your garden fountain will not look good as new forever without maintenance. Choose a product that is easy to disassemble and clean. If you don’t clean your water fountain, it can create a bad smell.
Types of models
There are different types of garden fountains available:
Table models: You can use table models on plinths, tables and other raised objects
Wall fountains: Wall fountains are intended to be either mounted on a wall or placed against a wall. This type of fountain will save space if you have a small garden
Floor fountains: As the name suggests, floor fountains are placed on the floor. There is a wide variety of styles and sizes to choose from in this category. Floor fountains come in tiered or disappearing designs – more on those in a second
Tiered Fountains: A tiered fountain pumps water to the top of the fountain, and it flows down several levels. The water ends up in a reservoir where it is then recycled.
