Water Fountains Buying Guide

What's that sound you hear? It could be the trickle of a water fountain, a welcome addition to the yard, patio, or deck in virtually any style of landscape.

Types of Water Fountains

Types of Water Fountains

Visit any public fountain or pool, and you'll see it for yourself: People are drawn to water. It's refreshing, it often adds sound, and in the heat of summer it just feels, well, cool. If you haven't added a water feature to your yard -- or you're looking to enhance what you have -- then a water fountain is the perfect choice. Available in a variety of sizes, water fountains are typically low-maintenance additions that fit in a range of spaces outside. Review these types -- urn, wall, tabletop, tiered, spitter, and birdbath -- and decide which one works for you.

Urn

The focus of an urn fountain is typically a large, bowl-like vessel that catches water. These fountains are usually placed on the floor of a deck or patio, or a level spot in the landscape.

Spitter

A spitter fountain combines a decorative element -- think a small statue of a frog or a flower -- with a mechanism that shoots water into a fountain or another feature, such as a pond.

Birdbath

To be both a birdbath and a fountain, the water must circulate. This attribute is great for a birdbath, though -- the movement of water keeps it from getting stale and helps to prevent insect breeding.

Product Features

Product Features

While water fountains aren't quite plug-and-play, they're pretty close, especially if you do your homework on the various product features that affect ease of use and maintenance. For example, power source might be a deciding factor for you, which means you'll have to look carefully at installation to ensure you have the proper supply close by. Other product features to review include lights, base, material, flow control, and fogging. Use our short overview to help review what you need.

Power Source

Most water fountains are powered by electricity; a few are battery-operated and some are solar-powered. The usefulness of the latter power source depends on how much sunlight your fountain will receive.

Lights

Some fountains are illuminated, either when night falls or when a switch is turned on. This is a wonderful way to add subtle accent to outdoor spaces such as patios or decks.

Base

Any water fountain will need a secure, level base to sit on. This can be a surface such as a deck, or it may be a small selection of pavers that provide stability.

Material

Water fountains can be found in a variety of materials: from metal to stone to various types of tile. Some material choices may be designed to weather differently than others; copper, for example, will turn green after certain exposure lengths.

Flow Control

Many water fountains have a flow control, which enables you to speed up or slow down the flow of water. That gives you the ability to change the sound based on your personal preference.

Fogging

Some water fountains also have a fogging feature, which turns some of the water in the fountain into fog. If you entertain frequently, this feature is fun to have during parties.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Luckily, water fountains are fairly easy accents to find a place for and to install. They don't demand too much attention, and they blend in easily to a variety of gardening and outdoor decorating schemes. But before you rush out and buy a water fountain, there are a few purchase considerations that make practical sense to consider. Size is perhaps the biggest factor that will determine where your water fountain can go, but cleaning, decorative elements, and style are certainly important, too. Use this guide to help you.

Size

Water fountains can be miniscule tabletop versions, or they can be multilevel sculptural elements that serve as a focal point in the landscape. Whatever your preference, make sure you have the space in your yard or on your deck to accommodate the fountain.

Cleaning

All water fountains need to be periodically cleaned. One that comes apart easily will make maintenance less of a burden.

Decorative Elements

A range of decorative elements is used to dress up water fountains -- natural imagery such as leaves made from metal, for example, or painted tiles inset into the structure. Choose what best suits you and your landscape.

Style

As with decorative elements, style is a big factor in ensuring a good fit for your water fountain in your landscape and with the other architecture in your yard. Particularly if the fountain will be next to a house or shed, its style should complement the existing structure.
