Tranquility in Your Own Back Yard

A garden fountain can add beauty and serenity to you yard or garden. It's long been known that running water can aid in relaxation. The addition of a water fountain can not only add a stunning center piece to you landscape design but also improve your overall experience of relaxation.

However, choosing a fountain can be a difficult task. With fountains ranging from low-end molded plastic to expensive carved stone it can be hard to find the correct fit for your home and budget. You want a fountain that will be the center piece for your landscaping for year to come.

Many low-end fountains will not stand the test of time. Molded plastic will crack and not clean up very well when dirty. Although they can be purchased economically, in the long-run you will not have the long-lasting center piece you are looking for.

High-end carved stone fountains can be stunning but expensive. Many will not fit into your budget and some will need extensive maintenance.

Make sure you select a fountain correct for your environment. Carved stone fountains can be very heavy. If you live in an environment with drastic weather changes you may have to store your fountain in the winter months. Heavy carved fountains may be hard to move and store. Generally once your fountain is installed you will not be able to move it easily or at all. This leads to the problem of the fountain cracking or spalling do to changes in temperature.

Another consideration is the pump and water capacity. Many low-end fountains will not hold much water or have the pumping capacity you are looking for. Mid-range to high-end fountains will have a better ability to move water and generally have a better appearance. Choose fountains that pump at 5 gallons per minute. These allow for a higher water capacity and a more visually pleasing stream of water.

Many mid-range fountains are made of poly resin or a stone and resin mix, making them very affordable and are resistant to weather. Along with their price and durability, these fountains are lighter than carved stone while still giving the look of and feel of stone.

While these fountains are considerably heavier than plastic they are still easy to move and store. Most weigh between 40?70 pounds making them easy to handle.

Location of your fountain is also important. You will need electricity nearby to power your pump. Choose mid-range fountains equipped with a standard 120v connection. You can simply plug them into a standard outlet and go.

A fountain can be a visually attractive and relaxing addition to your home and garden. When you select the correct fountain to fit your needs, you can add the tranquility of water to you home or office.
