A water feature can significantly impact your yard and have many benefits. Just listening to the sound of running water can be relaxing and pleasing. Outdoor fountains are a popular landscape feature in the Hollywood area and make a great focal point in yard landscaping. Having a fountain in your yard can make your home feel like the relaxing oasis you deserve, so let’s discuss four unique ways to utilize fountains in landscaping.
4 Unique Ways to Utilize Fountains in Landscaping
1. Table Fountains
Table fountains can be a great way to add a water feature to your landscaping without breaking the bank. They are small and pack a punch; you get all the sounds and feel of a waterfall without having to do any construction, planning, or heavy lifting. These fountains come in different designs and, contrary to their name, can be placed both on tables, the floor, or other surfaces. You can find a table fountain to fit any landscaping aesthetic!
2. Wall Fountains
Wall fountains are an interesting landscape addition because they can feel most similar to an actual waterfall. There are many ways you can incorporate a wall fountain into your yard. Some can be incorporated off of the side of existing structures, such as the main structure of the property, trellises, or pergolas. Alternatively, you can build a freestanding wall for a large display, as long as water and electric hookups are available.
3. Floor Fountains
Floor fountains are freestanding and can be placed or built anywhere in your landscape. There is a wide variety of styles, some are dug into the ground and take a lot of construction, and others can be installed easily. These fountains come in many styles to match any landscape; however, they are more expensive than other types of fountains.
4. Pool or Pond Fountains
Fountains can be a great addition to any existing water feature in your current landscape. Adding a fountain to a pool or pond can be a simple but huge impact. Fountains that drop into pools can use recycled pool water yet make your pool look decades newer.
