Most well-designed water features include fountains somewhere in the installation, as these additions can provide lovely kinetic energy to the setting. They also provide a little function as well, as they can prevent mosquitos from swarming the area and dissuade birds from preying on fish. The constant motion can also help aerate a pond, delivering additional oxygen that is much needed by any fish.
But most homeowners choose to install them because water features with fountains add movement and visual appeal to their landscaping. Common installations are with natural looking ponds, where they can help provide a centerpiece for people to focus on. This is because they offer excellent contrast against the calm surface of the pond and the elegant arrangement of landscaping along the pond’s banks.
Fountains are also a natural choice when a pond is not feasible or desired. Pondless models have an underground basin that collects circulating liquid, and any design works with them. This includes something as grandiose as a multi-tiered fountain adorned with intricate engravings or something as simple as a single piece of pottery that slowly circulates water through a hole cut in the top.
Whether a homeowner wants something modest or elaborate, a professional installer can help their vision become reality.
