Sit back and relax with a small garden fountain
Find a small, running creek near you. Now go sit beside it and don’t say anything. Just listen.
The sound of running water is one of the most soothing and calming sounds you can hear in nature. It’s peaceful, tranquil and somehow manages to erase all the worries and anxieties that occur any given day.
We have work stress, home stress, money stress and it’s difficult to just put those worries aside, and relax. But what if we could, for a very small cost, have one spot in the world we could go where we didn’t worry, and didn’t think about our problems.
It’s a great concept and one that millions of Americans have solved by installing a small garden fountain at their home.
Find your style and show it
It really doesn’t matter what type of garden fountain you install, it will be a treasured addition to your home, and one that you earn you way more than your initial investment. It will be a space…your space… where you can go and unwind from your day. The sounds of running water produced by a small garden fountain will inspire you to relax, calm down, breathe and just be alone with Mother Nature.
What type of garden fountain is best? That depends on you. Think about your specific style and what might work in your space.
If you have a small yard, you should consider a small fountain. You don’t want it to look like an obstacle to your neighbors. If your yard is big, then go big if you need to. But don’t underestimate the significance of a smaller garden fountain.
There are a variety of different styles of small garden fountains. You can spend $75 bucks putting one in, or you can spend $3,000. That is totally up to you.
When you’re ready to make a purchase, be sure to pay close attention to the pump and buy a unit that is high quality and will last for a long time. Aside from the popular concrete and stone fountains, there are a variety of small garden fountains available from other metals, such as aluminum or steel, or wood.
Again, it depends on what your individual style is and what is going to fit the aesthetics of your yard.
Easy on the eyes
If you opt for a small garden fountain, try supplementing it by planting succulents and tropical plants and grasses around it, giving it a larger presence in a smaller yard. It’s a small investment and you’ll get more bang for your buck.
To add visual interest, consider installing a pathway leading up to the fountain. Line both sides with pea gravel and place pavers down the center. Add a few interesting color-changing solar lights and you’ve just created a total relaxation and comfort oasis in your yard.
Small garden fountains can also block out some unwanted noise, such as traffic on a nearby freeway or a train barreling down a set of railroad tracks.
