Flowing water, relaxation, meditation – what could be more serene and beautiful? A fountain can add so much to the décor of your garden, backyard or home. First select the type of fountain: a table fountain, a garden fountain, floor fountain or a wall fountain. Next, it is very important to have the proper backing or support for your fountain, as many fountains are made of ceramic or stone and once they are filled with water, they can be very heavy.
You will want to make sure that you have the proper reservoir, pump, and filter box for the proper circulation of the water in the fountain. Placement of the fountain is also important due to light/shadow and sun exposure. Make sure that the ground is level around the fountain.
After the fountain itself is installed, you can add decorative rock, plants and vegetation to complete your area of relaxation.
