There is something soothing, almost magical, about the gentle trickle of water that creates a garden paradise. Fountains and bird baths are an easy way to incorporate the tranquility of water into your landscape while providing a centerpiece or being that one missing piece in your outdoor design.
Fountains and bird baths come in everything from cast stone to ceramic, fiberglass to metal and in a variety of size and weight. Style and material choices are plentiful, but before you fall head over heels for a certain look there’s a few things to take into account when deciding which fountain or bird bath to bring home.
Cast Stone: Molded into virtually any design these are well liked for their durability. They tend to be heavier than other material choices.
Ceramic: Beautiful pottery comes to mind when you think of this popular material. Glazed ceramic and terra cotta make attractive colorful additions to your landscape.
Fiberglass: Popular for wall fountains due to their lighter weight, this material can be found with such popular finishes as weathered iron, antique copper and glazed ceramic.
Cast Metal: Known for adding a distinct elegant appearance to your landscape, this material is commonly used as a fountain wall mount. The bronze and copper will develop a patina finish that enhances their beauty.
