How to ensure you child stays safe around garden stone fountains

Here at Geoffs Garden Ornaments, we have been providing beautiful garden water fountains to homeowners throughout the UK for over 25 years. We have built a fantastic reputation on providing quality stone fountains, ornaments and statues. From our free standing self-contained water fountains to more elaborate feature fountains, we have the ideal focal point for any garden, large or small.

Whilst our garden stone fountains add that something extra to any garden, they also pose a potential risk to children, especially if left unsupervised. It goes without saying that children need constant supervision around water, whether in bathtubs, swimming pools, lakes or even water fountains. Children can drown in less than 2 inches of water and so it is essential that children (young children in particular) are constantly watched when around water.

Further to this, it’s important to teach your children about the possible dangers of playing in and around stone fountains. They should know that the fountains are there for decorative purposes only as opposed to being an area of play. Ensure that you teach your children to never run, jump or push others when around fountains and other sources of water, such as ponds. Even in winter when the fountain is frozen over, it is important for your child to realise that they can still fall through the ice despite how thick it looks.

Although these precautions are to ensure the safety of children when around water fountains, they also help to make sure that your new garden focal point is not damaged in any way.

We have a wide range of stone fountains and are sure we will have the ideal one for your garden, regardless of your personal tastes and requirements. Along with a variety of designs and sizes, our fountains come in a range of different stones from classic limestone and white limestone through to sandstone and antique stone. You will be spoilt for choice at Geoffs Garden Ornaments!
