Garden fountains are designed to add breath taking brilliance to your garden area. You will find garden fountains in an array of sizes and designs, all to add beauty to your garden area. Fountains can be found with one, two, and three tiers. Generally, the bottom tier is the largest and they get smaller as you go up the fountain. Many garden fountains feature a statue of a child or other design at the top for added appeal. Buddha heads and other religious designs are also very popular.
The size and shape of garden fountain you will choose depends on the area you have available and the décor of the other landscaping you have in the area. While the classic design of a garden fountain made out of cast stone is still very popular, many individuals are starting to use more unique garden fountain options.
The Barcelona garden fountain is square shaped; with the top part looking like well designed candles. This is a very classy looking fountain that is definitely original. The Bilbao fountain is also square shaped with smaller squares on top just like the traditional round tier garden fountain.
For an even more distinct garden fountain, consider the bronze mirror fountain. This is a tall piece of bronze in a wooden frame. The base of the fountain has colorful rocks. The water flows over the bronze piece. This is a gorgeous garden fountain with the sun reflecting off of it or the moonlight gently illuminating it. A very similar garden fountain is the clear gardenfall. It is designed the same as the bronze mirror fountain, but the middle piece is clear. Sometimes you can find the clear glass with a pretty picture etched into it for a very appealing look.
Garden fountains add the look of elegance and class to any garden. There are so many styles and designs to choose from that it will not be easy to decide which one to add to your garden. Take your time to make sure you choose one that is going to fit the other landscaping items you have laid out in your garden area. You also want one that is a good fit in size for the opening you have. Smaller fountains can help make your garden look bigger as well as divide the area into sections. It is a good idea to get a catalog of various garden fountains or to search the internet to help you make an informed decision about the garden fountain to choose.
