Best Backyard Fountains

Fountains are the perfect finishing touch to just about any backyard. They are beautiful to look at and they create a relaxing ambiance. Check out some of the best backyard fountains below.

• Tiered Fountains

A tiered fountain is a classic look. You can get this type of fountain with varying numbers of tiers depending on how tall or large you want your fountain. In a tiered fountain, the water flows down from the top of the fountain, trickling down the sides of each tier, and into a basin at the bottom of the fountain. A tiered fountain can really be a focal point of a garden.

• Urn Fountains

Urn fountains are a nice alternative to a tiered fountain if you are short on space. Urn fountains normally take up less room than a classic tiered fountain. The water in an urn style fountain shoots out from the top and pours over the sides of the urn, into a basin at the bottom of the fountain. Even though these fountains take up less space, they will still create a statement in your backyard.

• Wall Fountains

If you have a wall in your backyard garden, or would like a focal point on the outside wall of your house, consider a wall fountain. Wall fountains usually sit flush against a flat surface and pour water into a basin. They are perfect for accenting a typically forgotten area of your backyard.

• Bubbling Fountains / Basalt Fountains 

Bubbling fountains do just that, gently bubble water over a surface. Bubbling fountains create a relaxing sound of gargling water, perfect for a peaceful atmosphere. They are typically smaller in size and are the ideal enhancement to a smaller backyard.
