Create a Backyard Retreat

Adding a water feature can bring a whole new experience to your yard or garden area.  A well-placed outdoor water fountain can transform an ordinary backyard into a wonderful outdoor retreat.  After a long day at work or at home with the kids, sit down and relax. Take off your shoes, and listen to the soothing, healing sound of the water and watch the mesmerizing flow of the outdoor water fountain.  Whether you are seeking a few quiet minutes alone for meditation or looking to entertain a group, an outdoor water fountain gives your backyard a whole new look and feel.

Today, there are hundreds of styles and materials to choose from if you are planning to purchase an outdoor water fountain:  Should it be a solar water fountain or electric?  Will it be a mounted water fountain or standing?  What color should it be?  Do you prefer plain and simple or ornate? 

Once you have decided on your outdoor water fountain, the next question becomes: Where to place it?   Walk around your garden or terrace, and take time to consider where the outdoor water fountain should be located.  Ideally, you want to place the outdoor fountain in a high-visibility area, where it can easily be seen and heard.  The secret to success in choosing your outdoor water fountain is to do a little research on all the fountain options and the placement options on your property.  

If your outdoor water fountain is part of a larger landscaping project, you may find that you want to consult with a garden designer or landscaper to maximize your space.  An outdoor water fountain perfectly placed in your backyard can bring out the space’s natural look. To make your fountain the focal point of your backyard space, a tiered model is ideal. Modern outdoor fountains made from more durable products, one level or the tiered variety, easily withstand the elements and can be found in a range of sizes to fit  your landscape.

An outdoor water fountain can help your yard become a visual showpiece that you and your guests can enjoy for years to come. And when it comes time to sell your home, your backyard oasis will be a strong selling point.  A fountain can transform your backyard to a peaceful setting where your friends and family can have a relaxing time forever. Your perfect backyard retreat can become a beautiful, peaceful reality through good planning and research, including your outdoor water fountain.
