A garden fountain can add beauty and serenity to you yard or garden. Itís long been known that running water can aid in relaxation. The addition of a water fountain can not only add a stunning center piece to you landscape design but also improve your overall experience of relaxation.
However, choosing a fountain can be a difficult task. With fountains ranging from low-end molded plastic to expensive carved stone it can be hard to find correct fit for your home and budget. You want a fountain that will be center piece for your landscaping for year to come.
Many low-end fountains will not stand test of time. Molded plastic will crack and not clean up very well when dirty. Although they can be purchased economically, in long-run you will not have long-lasting center piece you are looking for.
High-end carved stone fountains can be stunning but expensive. Many will not fit into your budget and some will need extensive maintenance.

If you live in an environment with drastic weather changes you may have to store your fountain in winter months. Heavy carved fountains may be hard to move and store. Generally once your fountain is installed you will not be able to move it easily or at all. This leads to problem of fountain cracking or spalling do to changes in temperature.
