A decorative water fountain will provide wildlife with a freshwater source. A fountain can also be used to create a private sanctuary that you and your loved ones can enjoy when outdoors.
The Addition Of A Fountain
When you shop for a fountain, you will be presented with many garden fountain styles and materials. The addition of a fountain will either involve working a new water feature into an existing landscape or installing a fountain first and then planting new foliage to accent the water feature. If a fountain is going to be used to complement existing landscaping features, inspecting the trees and foliage that are growing on your property will help you pick an ideal location for the fountain.
A natural tree line can act as a wind barrier, plus will increase privacy where a fountain is being added. If you would like to observe birds and other wildlife enjoying the new feature, you may want to install a fountain next to a series of trees where birds and other small creatures frequent.
If you are going to shop for a fountain first, then pick out some new landscaping features that will complement the water feature, and decide how much room you will have to designate outdoors for the addition of a fountain. A manufacturer will advertise if a particular water feature will need to be assembled during the installation process.
The Use Of Accessories
Accessories can make the use of a fountain more appealing, plus will allow you to change the appearance of a water fountain. Lights, tropical plants, rocks, and decorative stones can be used to accent your new water fountain. LED submersible lights will draw attention to a fountain's interior.
Some light products are better suited to be installed along the property that surrounds a fountain. Lighting may alter your perception when viewing the fountain, plus make the time spent near the water feature more appealing. Plants that are going to be added to a water feature will need to be resilient to the temperatures and weather patterns that are experienced in the region where you reside.
Rocks and decorative stones can be added directly to the water feature or placed around it. Before placing any rocks or stones inside of the water feature, use a garden hose to rinse off the surface of each one. This will remove surface dirt that could compromise the cleanliness of the fountain's water.
