When it comes to home decorating, we are pretty stuck with the boundaries of our home and property. This is especially the case when it comes to decorating the yard around a home.

If you have a small backyard, you may be wondering just what you can do with it to make it seem more impressive and open. You would be amazed at how much of a difference an outdoor garden fountain can make.

The Sound

The first thing that a garden water fountain can do for you is give you the sound of being out in the wilderness. When people hear running water from a home garden fountain, they are often transported somewhere else. They feel as if they are out exploring nature and far away from city life.

The Look

Another benefit to a garden fountain is the beauty of watching flowing water. Garden water fountains will draw the attention of those who visit your home. From a young age almost all people are drawn to watching flowing water. Perhaps it is the constant motion of the liquid or the metaphysical thoughts about water and consciousness combining that get attention. No matter what it is, you will find that once you install outdoor garden fountains your guests will be making their way to your garden’s fountains to appreciate them.

Fountain Options

There are plenty of types of fountains you can choose for your garden. Some are free standing structures, usually a sculpture that has water flowing out of it into a pool at the bottom. There are also fountain gardens that are one or more small fountains that are incorporated with plants and other aspects of your garden to create one cohesive look. Another option, especially if you are limited in yard space, is garden wall fountains. These are literally fountains that can be attached to your wall and flow down the side of the wall seemingly opening the space.

Eco Friendly Fountains

Many people like the idea of fountains, but don’t want to leave a larger carbon footprint by needing to use electricity to run the garden fountain pumps. You don’t have to. Thankfully there is another option. These days there are solar garden fountain offerings that can do more and more. Some light up, others also run the pump and lights off of solar power. This lets you have your fountain and power it too without feeling guilty.
