The style will depend on your personal taste, as well as the location in which you wish to install the fountain.
Be sure to select a fountain which will not only complement your décor, but also be a good fit for the particular back yard location you have in mind.
CONSIDERATIONS WHEN PURCHASING AN OUTDOOR FOUNTAIN:
First of all you need to consider the perfect location. Do you want something that will be placed on your patio? Maybe you want a tiered outdoor fountain, or one of the stone garden fountains to nestle in with the foliage in a particular spot in your yard.
Once you have decided on the placement of your fountain.. you need to do some measuring. You want something that will fit the scale of your patio or backyard space.
If you are placing it in with the foliage, you don’t want something so big that it appears as though it is crowded in with all of the bushes and/or plants. Nor do you want it so close that the plants will be climbing over and around the fountain so as to obscure it from view.
You want your beautiful outdoor fountain to be a focal point in your yard. Try to place it slightly in front of the foliage, or clear out a defined space for it so that your fountain stands out.
CONSIDERING PROPER SCALE AND STYLE FOR YOUR FOUNTAIN:
You may have seen some elaborate outdoor fountains. The grand fountains that all of us would love to have gracing our property. But, unless you have a very large piece of property the fountain would look out of place.
You also need to consider the style of your fountain. The style of your home indoors as well as outdoors should complement each other. That is to say if your style indoors is more contemporary then your outdoor style should follow the same basic guidelines.
When your guests step out into your backyard you don’t want them to feel as though they have stepped into an entirely different time period. If your interior is mid-Century modern.. having a Renaissance style fountain in your back yard might not look quite right considering your design style.
CONSIDER THE VARIOUS FEATURES OF OUTDOOR FOUNTAINS:
You should consider what features you would like in your outdoor fountain. Some fountains are solar powered, while others require a power source. Your landscaper will easly be able to run the electrical wiring for your fountain, so that shouldn’t be a major concern if the fountain you have fallen in love with is powered by electricity.
Another consideration is lighting. Would you like an outdoor fountain with LED lights.. or would you prefer to light it subtly by focusing your landscape lighting towards the fountain?
