Gallery of Water Fountains for Garden
Picture One: DIY fountain
The soft splash of a fountain brings life and motion to the backyard. It attracts more birds than still water alone, and its soothing sound track transforms your space into a peaceful retreat. You can build the fountain pictured here for about $160 (not including stones), using two glazed pots (a shallow bowl nests snugly inside the larger pot), a bucket, and a small recirculating pump.
Picture Two: Cool water
This soothing bubbler is part of an entry garden for a home on the island of Oahu. Its 30-inch-wide glazed and sealed stoneware bowl (find similar ones for around $100) is fitted with a small bubbler pump (from $20; thehomedepot.com). Because the bubbler does little more than stir the water, there’s no need for a reservoir beneath the bowl.
Picture Three: Mission-style stream
Mission Style Stream
A shallow stream neatly bisects this San Luis Obispo backyard and cascades over a stone wall into a pool. Kangaroo paw adds a touch of drama to the palette of olive and gray-greens.
Picture Four: Perfectly simple
To give this small fountain more presence, the designer created a mini garden around it using billowy grasses, fleshy succulents, and showy orchids.
Picture Five: Pathway focal point
Pathway Focal Point
A stone fountain adds interest to a gravel path through planting beds. In this garden, lady’s-mantle with chartreuse blooms surrounds the fountain, while cape fuchsia (Phygelius) with orange-pink flowers spills into the path.
Picture Six: Stylish noise muffler
Stylish noise muffler
This garden is about two blocks from a freeway, but the owners hardly notice the sound thanks to their burbling fountain.
Picture Seven: Urn of stone
Urn of Stone
Water spills from an antique French stone urn into a rectangular pool and a narrow, 18-inch-deep channel in this San Clemente, Calif., garden. A pump recirculates the water. The design, a joint effort of Larry Steinle, a Laguna Beach landscape architect, and Lew Whitney, chairman of Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar, is the focal point of a garden corner that invites quiet contemplation. Scented geraniums and other foliage plants grow nearby.
Picture Eight: Oil jar classic
Oil Jars Classic
This glazed blue oil-jar fountain sits on a tile-covered concrete pedestal framed by a 20-inch-deep pool in Hollywood, Calif. A submersible, recirculating pump housed within the pedestal pushes water through a galvanized pipe, which fits through a hole in the jar’s bottom; the water then trickles over the jar’s rim into the 3 1/2-foot-square, concrete-lined pool.
That’s only a few of inspiring pictures of garden fountains. However, you can create your own water fountains for garden based on your needs and desires with your little creativity and patience.
