Garden Fountains convey a very relaxing feel to any space in which they are installed. A lot of people have taken up the hobby of gardening. Far more relaxing than a simple lawn, garden fountains can change one’s garden into something really exotic.
Outdoor garden fountains are very versatile. With a garden fountain, your outdoor living space will quickly become a place you go to each day to unwind, relax and enjoy your surroundings. Create a budget friendly retreat in your own backyard and feel as though you have escaped to a high end spa by creatively integrating an outdoor water fountain into your landscaping. You can maximize the impact of your smaller patio garden fountains by placing the fountain on plant risers or a pedestal to add height and allow the water sounds to reach further into your space. The style and material of your garden fountain is going to be dependent on two things: your taste and how your landscape is designed. Outdoor garden fountains can be found in an array of styles. For instance, you can go with a wall garden fountain. This simply hooks to your wall, usually around the back deck or front porch. These fountains can accentuate the place it’s been bought for. Along with the styles of the outdoor garden fountains, there are a variety of materials they are made from. You can find them in fiberglass, marble, metal, stone and wood.
There are several positive aspects of fountains and the use of Feng Shui. Place a fountain in an area where your children can sit to work on homework or study. This promotes knowledge and learning. Add a wind chime fountain to provide a musical tinkling to the murmur of the fountain’s natural, soothing sound of water. An underwater light or mirror will add the element of brightness, which symbolizes happiness and life.
Color is also a significant part of your garden fountain. Blue can be beneficial if you decide on a light shade that includes a touch of green. A green fountain promotes growth and tranquility. All shades of brown, orange and yellow help us in connecting to the earth as well as nature.
Maintaining your garden fountains should be a relatively easy process. Depending on the material of your water Fountains, the cleaning instructions may vary. Typically you’ll want to clean your water fountain once every couple months. If you use distilled water you will not need to clean it as frequently. Completely drain the fountain, if it’s a wall fountain you may find it easier to suck the water out with a shop vacuum or disconnect the pump and run the water out into a bucket. Wipe the basin with a clean sponge or cloth, clean any rocks you might have in the fountain so they are clean of any algae build up, take out your pump, thoroughly clean the tubing and wipe the pump clean of any build up as well. Put your fountain back together, add water and any water treatment products, switch it on and you’re set.
