If you are looking at redesigning an outdoor space, why not incorporate an outdoor garden fountain? Whether you are looking at purchasing large fountains which sit independently or a smaller fountain that can be wall mounted or sit on your deck or patio, there are many different choices to pick from. In fact, there are so many different choices to pick from that narrowing your options down can be difficult. Here are a few suggestions that may help you do so.

The first is size. Large fountains can be beautiful but if you do not have a large yard, they can dominate the space. Large fountains may also be quite expensive to purchase and to ship since they are often very large and very heavy. The style of your landscaping should influence the large fountains you are looking at.

If you have a very formal style of landscaping with architectural beds and precisely shaped hedges, you may want large fountains that also have very classic styling. They may have statuary incorporated into them. Other large fountains may also have urns or be shaped like an obelisk.

If you are utilizing a more relaxed styling in your landscaping, you may want to look for fountains which are not as ornate. In this case, picking one that looks like a waterfall or a pile of rocks may be the best choice. In fact, an informal style can actually mean that it is possible to put a larger fountain than normal into an outdoor space.

You can also find an outdoor garden fountain which can be wall mounted. These can be fantastic because they allow you to experience the soothing sound of water in an area that may not be large enough for a freestanding model. You may be interested in a classic look which may use an animal head or other sculptural element or a more modern looking fountain that is more abstractly designed.

When you are picking your outdoor garden fountain, you need to think about where you will be positioning it. It may be a good idea to set a freestanding fountain in an area that is not screened by overhanging trees because you may find that it gets plugged by leaves and may require more maintenance than one which is located in a clearer area.

You also need to think about the weight of your outdoor garden fountain. This is especially true if you are placing a freestanding fountain on a deck. Remember that even if the weight of the outdoor garden fountain is not heavy when it is not filled with water, the weight of the water in the fountain can quickly add up. You can get around this by picking a fountain which is made of cultured stone or one which has a basin that is made of something other than rock or cement.

You will also need access to a power source in order to operate the pump which allows the water to circulate. If you are not someone who is able to run a line to the fountain you may need to pick a smaller model that can be positioned near an electrical outlet.

By thinking of these things before you make your purchase you will often save time, money and frustration and get a great fountain the first time around.
