Fountains have been a fixture in gardens for hundreds of years. Compared to other landscaping water features, such as waterfalls or ponds, garden fountains are easier to install and an easy way to introduce the sensory sound of moving water to your environment. If you are interested in adding a fountain to your landscape, here are three ways to utilize it.
- As a place to rest in the center of your garden. First, if you have a large backyard and enjoy browsing through it, adding a fountain as a place to rest can be pleasing. A fountain can not only be a center point for your design, but it can also be a peaceful place to enjoy a good book, a picnic, or relax.
- Near the dining area for ambient noise. Next, another location for a garden fountain is near the outdoor dining area. The sound of running water can be very pleasant and add a comforting ambiance to any meal. If you are looking for something more natural than playing music and that reminds you just how relaxing and pleasant the outdoors is, a garden fountain can be the solution.
- Between the sitting area and the street for privacy. Finally, if your backyard is close to the road, you may want a little privacy from the sound of cars and city life. A fountain can be the solution. A fountain is loud enough to block out the sound of cars and buses but pleasant at the same time, so you are not a worse sound overtop of what you are trying to block out.
Adding a fountain to your landscape is an optional thing, but a ountain has many benefits. Not only can a fountain be visually pleasing and add value to your home, but it can be a place to relax with some of your garden, ambient noise for an outdoor meal, or a barrier between your backyard oasis and the city streets.
