Are you considering adding a stone fountain to your landscape? Before you start shopping or begin the design process, consider the different types of stone available for fountains. If you are placing your fountain outdoors, we recommend granite.
Granite is the most durable stone. The only substance harder than granite is diamond. Other stone types, such as marble and limestone, have porous surfaces that can trap and hold water. Trapped water overtime causes the stone fountain to crack and crumble as the water freezes and thaws. Granite is less likely to deteriorate from harsh weather conditions with its solid surface.
Man-made stone, like cast stone, can’t match the beauty of granite. Granite is available in a wide range of colors, from charcoal grey to light tan. Plus, each cut of granite is one-of-a-kind. Every inch of our granite fountains is hand carved by a skilled artisan to include unique patterns and details.
Cast stone fountains are poured into a mold with little room for design changes. Our handcarved granite fountains are completely customizable! You can choose every detail of your granite fountain to create a design to match your style.
