Garden fountains have long been a staple of city gardens – after all they bring a little of the sights and sounds of the countryside to the busiest of suburban neighbourhoods. However, more and more owners of country houses are deciding to install water fountains in their garden too. These wonderful additions bring so much peace and tranquillity to a garden and they are also visually very pleasing too. It’s no wonder that the popularity of these garden ornaments is increasing all the time. In this article we will tell you how to choose the perfect garden fountains for your country garden – read on to find out more!
First and foremost it is really important to choose the perfect size to suit your country garden. If you choose garden fountains that are too small then they will get lost and lose their impact, but if you choose ones that are too big then they run the risk of completely dwarfing the rest of the garden. Luckily these beautiful features are available in a wide range of sizes so it is perfectly possible to choose the perfect size to suit your garden. Take measurements before you commit to buying just to make sure that you are absolutely confident that it will fit perfectly.
Choose a shape which suits the rest of your garden – don’t rush your decision and instead take the time to have a thorough look through all of the options that are available to you. Garden fountains are available in a myriad of different styles so pick one that is visually appealing and that won’t look out of place in your garden.
Again, water fountains are available in a variety of different colours so don’t feel like you are limited to just one. Look at lots of different colours of stone and pick one that is in keeping with the layout of the rest of your garden.
Choosing the perfect place in your country garden for your water feature to go is vital. Some people like to have their fountain in a central place where is makes the most impact visually, while others prefer to have one tucked away in a quiet corner for those moments of quiet contemplation.
