When you think about placing a fountain in your garden you need to consider first the way this garden will look with the fountain in it, the size and the style of the fountain in question.
The effect it will create need also to be considered and the elements and accents around it are mainly responsible for that effect.
Any kind of decorative element containing water either static or in movement can become the central point of a garden. Using a fountain will set the tone of the way the garden will be decorated- the decorations, the chosen furniture, the flowers and bushes around it.
It is very possible that the placement of a fountain will separate the garden in two areas with very different functions especially if the garden is a large one.
“Table” fountains are a good choice for people with a very busy lifestyle because they do not need a lot of carrying, give a peaceful air and are an excellent decorative item even in a small garden.
For a more classical and in the same time spectacular impression , there are recommended the roman fountains, from concrete or stone , with or without a statue, that offer the garden a more formal look.
Before purchasing such a fountain you must consider its future position and whether it fits the house and garden design.
The wall fountains come with a larger space but need a resistant wall on which to be placed. They also need a basin with a fitting design.
Whatever the choice, the garden fountain can make the garden unique and create an elegant ambiance for entertaining the guests.
