GARDEN FOUNTAIN DECOR
TIf you already own an outdoor garden fountain, or thinking about adding one you will be thrilled with your decision. While many garden fountains are stunning, some offer the same soothing sound of water but are simple in design. To enhance the appearance of your fountain, you can add a number of décor options. Think of your garden or patio as your home, adding a little décor can change the entire appearance, making the space homey and inviting.
For instance, if you have a beautiful flower garden, rather than just enjoy it from far off, you could add a nice, ornate garden bench and perhaps a small waterfall feature. Fountains are in fact the best and most popular way to enhance any outdoor area. Remember, unlike statues, pieces of furniture, or other types of outdoor décor, a garden fountain will provide both visual and hearing enjoyment. You can sit back on a lazy Sunday morning with a cup of coffee to enjoy the soothing sound of the water or find this a place to unwind after an exhausting day at the office.
Keep in mind that garden fountains also provide a way to block out unwanted noise. For instance, if you have nearby neighbors with barking dogs, a freeway too close to the home, or happen to live in the line of airport traffic, the sound of the water can mask those noises. That means you can enjoy the beauty of the fountain and water while also having a means of escaping everyday life. For this reason, you will often find waterfalls in hospitals, doctor’s offices, and other places where large numbers of people gather. With the sound of the water, there is the visual pleasure and the audio distraction so conversations remain private.
For your backyard, a garden fountain is the ideal choice, regardless of the size of your yard, deck, or patio. With so many options, you could choose a larger fountain and pond combination made from faux rocks and standing 77 inches tall or something small that sits on a tabletop on your deck. In addition to size, garden fountains come in a number of materials. For example, if you want something that is elegant and sophisticated, then you might consider a fountain made from granite, stone, or slate. However, if you prefer a country or rustic look and feel, materials such as copper, cedar, and rock are perfect.
Garden fountains are also affordable. While you will find some of the larger styles running into the thousands, most fountains are less than $100! For the enjoyment you will get, this investment is small. When shopping for the perfect garden fountain, just remember you want one that comes with a quality pump, one that can be set up and installed quick and easy, and a fountain that meets your specific needs as far as design, sound, and size.
