Fountain & Waterfall
Adding a water feature brings a whole new sensory experience to your home, office & garden. A well-placed fountain can transform an ordinary backyard into a relaxing outdoor retreat with the restorative sound and hypnotizing movement of trickling water. A fountain can also serve as a focal point in a front yard, plaza or courtyard.
Garden fountains come in a wide range of sizes, styles and materials. You can have one custom designed and built fountain or you can purchase a prefabricated fountain. Fountains can be mounted on walls, freestanding, tiered or disappearing.
Self-contained fountains are great because of their affordability and convenience. Self-contained fountains are well-suited for existing patios and decks because they do not require extensive construction. A self-contained fountain can be up and running in a matter of minutes.
Cast Stone Fountains
Cast stone fountains can be molded into virtually any design. Well liked for their durability and authenticity, they are lighter than fountains carved from real stone, but have a similar appearance and texture.
Fiberglass fountains are designed to be lightweight, with some wall fountains weighing as little as six pounds. A fiberglass fountain can be finished to look like worn lead, weathered iron, antique copper, glazed ceramic or even aged stone.
Ceramic fountains are made from beautiful pottery. You can choose from a terra cotta fountain or a glazed ceramic fountain. Ceramic fountains are typically smaller than cast stone or fiberglass fountains, making them well suited for patios, decks and small gardens.
Cast metal fountains have a distinct, classical appearance. They tend to be ornate with statues of people or animals, like something you'd expect to stumble upon in an Italian courtyard. Popular fountain metals include bronze, copper, steel and aluminum.
Wall fountains are perfect for small patios or courtyards because they add an element of relaxation and a touch of style without taking up much space. Whatever look you are going for - traditional, antique, modern or Asian - there is an outdoor wall fountain that will suit your tastes.
Tiered Garden Fountains
Tiered fountains have been popular additions to private and public gardens for years. They can be spotted in courtyards and plazas throughout Mediterranean countries such as Italy and Spain.
Calming Courtyard Fountain
This front courtyard in California is anything but ordinary. A custom fountain with a stone catch basin was installed to the left of the curved path to add the soothing sound of running water.
Front Yard Limestone Fountain
When you arrive at the front of the home you are greeted by a large retaining wall with a limestone wall fountain placed at its highest point. A combination of evergreens and regionally appropriate perennials surround the fountain, softening its edges and providing contrasting color.
A Sensory Entry Fountain
Along the entrance path to this home, a custom fountain, clad in a vibrant tile mosaic, provides an auditory element. The fountain captures the attention of visitors as they walk along the path, causing them to pause and reflect.
Front Yard Stream
Large, flat stone were used to create a bridge, so that as you approach the front door, water is flowing beneath your feet.
Modern Front Yard Pond
Going lawnless doesn’t mean that your front yard has to be unattractive and boring. This example shows a geometric walkway that crosses over a rectangular pond. The pond has a dark bottom so that the reflection of the surrounding plants will be crisp on the surface of the water.
Millstone Entry Fountain
The front entry to this Tucson home is accented with a millstone fountain that rises up from beneath the surrounding pavement. Water gently spills over the edges of the round stone, creating a gentle welcoming sound.
Pondless Urn Fountains
This front yard boasts two water features that are uplit at night. Made of ribbed ceramic urns atop an underground basin, this type of fountain is termed pondless because there isn’t a pool of water at the base.
Japanese Garden Fountains
If you have the space, a bigger water feature is an option. A stream, pond or waterfall is a common feature in Asian gardens. Remember, Japanese garden design is all about mimicking nature, so create meandering natural shapes for streams or ponds. Adding koi or goldfish to a pond is an option. Koi ponds feature aquatic plants and ornamental fish
Modern Outdoor Fountains
This fountain, located in a front courtyard, has a sophisticated aesthetic. The use of a single material and large, angular shapes give the design a very modern appearance, while the even spacing of the three waterfalls creates balance. This low, rectangular fountain features a unique combination of contemporary materials.
A pondless or disappearing fountain is one in which the water reservoir is hidden underground. Popular disappearing fountain styles include ceramic urns, millstones, carved rocks, granite columns, or naturalistic waterfalls. The basin on which the fountain rests can be covered with river rock, gravel or another decorative stone that allows water to pass through.
