A prevalent choice today is copper, and it is used in the making of many sculptural garden fountains. Copper fountains are the ideal option because they are perfect for the inside and outside. If you opt to go with copper, your fountain can be any style from fun and whimsical to contemporary.

If your style is more traditional, a brass water fountain might be ideal for you. You will see a lot of brass fountains, as their interesting artwork makes them trendy even if they are on the more traditional side.

Most folks today see stainless steel as the most modern choice. A contemporary steel design will quickly boost the value of your garden as well as the feeling of peacefulness. As with any type of fountain, they are available in many sizes.

Your Outdoor Living Area: A Great Spot for a Fountain

The addition of a wall fountain or an outdoor garden fountain is a great way to adorn your yard or garden design. Any number of current designers and fountain craftsmen have found ideas in the fountains and water features of the past. As such, introducing one of these to your interior is a great way to connect it to the past. Among the many attributes of these beautiful garden fountains is the water and moisture they release into the air which attracts birds and other wild life as well as helps to balance the ecosystem. For example, irritating flying insects are usually discouraged by the birds attracted to the fountain or birdbath.

Spouting or cascading fountains are not the best alternative for a small backyard since they occupy a great deal of space. There are two types of fountains to pick from including the freestanding version with a flat back and an attached basin set up against a fence or a wall in your yard, or the wall-mounted, self-contained variety which is hung directly on a wall. Both a fountain mask placed on the existing wall as well as a basin located at the bottom to collect the water are equired if you wish to add a fountain. Since the plumbing and masonry work is extensive to complete this type of job, you should hire a specialist to do it rather than try to do it alone.
