If you are someone who has always loved the gentle sound of running water and has always wanted to have your very own water garden feature, you will love some of the smaller designs you can find today.
Stone fountains need not be grand, ornate affairs. If you do not want one to dominate your lawn, it is more than possible to source a small fountain which will fit neatly into a previously unloved corner of the garden or sit against a wall on your patio.
If you are concerned about the cost of fitting one and the amount of work that will be involved, you may again be pleasantly surprised to learn that some small stone fountains sit above the ground and do not require foundations. They sit on a plate and are easily connected to your electricity supply with hidden cables. You may even choose a stand-alone fountain that runs from a solar-powered pump.
If, on the other hand, you require a large and imposing fountain, you can employ someone to level the ground and to use a small digger to dig the foundations. If you have a little experience in DIY, however, you should be able to do it yourself easily.
There are many different styles of fountain to choose from. You will find classical statues and the traditional three-tiered variety. You can buy anything from small versions that do not require a pond base to much larger fountains which sit in ponds of your own design, and everything in between.
If you favour a more contemporary design, ball stone fountains are very modern. These are a popular favourite as people love to watch the water bubble up through the fountain’s central orb and glisten over it on to the base below.
You may also like Buddha fountains, which will look great in a small garden with a Zen-like feel. Just add bamboo and an area of raked gravel.
Tiny spaces may benefit from a wall fountain or a small ball fountain design. If you do not even have a garden, you could still place one of these on a patio or small area of decking. A large front door step may even be space enough to house one. How wonderful to hear the sound of running water as you return home from work!
