Most people find the sound of running water relaxing and enjoyable. Fountains add a cool feeling to the garden and come in all shapes and sizes.
If you have an existing water garden--whether it’s a small container or a large pond--consider adding a fountain head. You can also purchase a stand-alone fountain or even a tabletop model.
Your fountain can be a waterfall cascading down stones to a small pool, or a gentle flow over the edge of a container.
Fountain pumps require electricity or solar power to recirculate the water. You can purchase components from garden centers or hardware stores.
An added benefit is that your fountain will also attract wildlife!
