Outdoor water fountains are a cost effective way of beautifying a home, yard, garden, or porch. Instead of expensive renovation and refurbishing, simply installing a fountain can change the appearance of the property drastically. Even for a cluttered, dark corner in the yard or terrace that a homeowner wishes to brighten up, an outdoor fountain is wholly recommended. Some of the criteria through which you can choose outdoor water fountains are detailed below.
The fountain should be in proportion to the size of the yard or lawn. A large fountain in a small yard can make it appear cramped. A small fountain in a big lawn does not catch the attention of visitors, nullifying its purpose. For a very small porch, you can add an outdoor wall fountain in a corner.
Outdoor fountains face one problem that indoor fountains do not face – sinking. Soft earth can cause a heavy fountain to sink into the ground. If the ground becomes wet due to spilling, then the fountain is even more likely to sink. To avoid this problem, make sure that the fountain is placed on firm ground. Ideally, a large fountain should be placed in the center of the plot for the maximum effect.
