A garden fountain is a classy garden ornament which can give your outdoor space a wonderful, classy look; the splashing of the water has a calming effect upon the mind, making it easy to find peace and quiet, to leave behind the stresses of daily life and simply enjoy the moment. Furthermore, waterspout fountains, which provide a special water experience, also give wild birds and insects opportunities to bathe and drink the water. There are therefore plenty of reasons to buy a garden water feature and to place it in your green oasis of relaxation, combining it with proper garden lights, sculptures and statues and other decorative elements.

Our selection of garden fountains
A garden water feature is a real highlight for any outside space, whether it’s a patio, garden or a terrace. The only question remaining is which model to choose: would you rather go for small water features, or maybe for a modern fountain with waterfall – which is an absolute feast for the eyes? And what about a playful waterspout fountain instead, whose dancing jets of water will leave you fascinated? Artistically designed decorative fountains, such as those in the shape of a figure, like for example the well known Buddha water features, are real attention-grabbers.
An elegant stone wall, down which water constantly runs, is also extremely attractive, while a stone fountain is particularly effective in an almost purely natural garden. Eye-catching cascade fountains have a basic structure with a certain height and the water falls down from above, stage-by-stage, over several levels. Cascade fountains produce a number of mini waterfalls, thereby creating a very relaxing atmosphere. A special feature is also the environmentally friendly solar-powered water features, where the solar module is placed in the sunlight, providing the energy for the water to circulate by itself.
Solar water features: how do they work?
Owners of a detached house may have a number of options when it comes to thinking about how to embellish the green surroundings of their property. These can include the decision to place an attractive garden water fountain among the vegetation or in a suitable location. In addition to the choice of a classic fountain, that must necessarily be powered by the domestic electrical system, in our product gallery you can find various ecological and energy-saving.
Solar-powered garden fountains are ornamental exterior decorations that are mainly made of resin or materials such as ceramic, copper and steel, and they integrate modern photovoltaic technology. A solar-powered water feature is equipped with one or more photovoltaic panels which, depending on the different solutions, can be integrated into the fountain or connected to it separately. Operation is usually direct, i.e. it is activated according to sun exposure and stops when the sky becomes cloudy. The water circulates in a closed circuit via a pump powered by the electricity produced by the solar modules.
Storage batteries and running costs are absent, as are any cautions or precautions commonly needed when installing electrical systems outdoors or in damp settings because in solar-powered fountains, the low voltage pump is powered by the sun. Solar-powered fountains are easy to move around and, because there are no cables to hide in the ground, they do not damage the turf in your garden. They can also be used as birdbaths but, in any case, they are an excellent alternative to the waste of water inherent in the open water and electricity circuits of ordinary decorative garden fountains.
Choose a good location for your fountain
As there are many different shapes and sizes of fountains available, first of all, you should decide where your garden water feature is going to be placed before you select the one to buy. When it comes to wall fountains, the decision is usually easy: they can be positioned against the wall of the house or integrated into a natural stone wall. Take some time to choose the right location because, if the fountain is placed beneath trees, you’ll have to expect some leaves, at least in the fall. It is best to place it in as free a position as possible within your range of sight. Alternatively, an additional seating area can be created near to the fountain, e.g. by using a bench. The fountain is a central element within the garden and, as a visual element that attracts attention, shouldn't be given some visual emphasis.
How to clean your garden fountain
One of the main problems associated with this piece of garden furniture is that, if it is not cleaned constantly, it easily loses all its beauty. As a result, neglected garden fountains can accumulate a lot of algae, dirty water and often emit unpleasant odours. For this reason, here’s a few tips to help you maintain your garden water feature in an impeccable manner.
- First of all, disconnect the water intake and empty the inside of the fountain. It is very important not to throw the water into the garden, because the contaminants present could damage it.
- Once the fountain has been emptied, remove all the dirt deposited inside to prevent it from clogging.
- To clean the fountain, we use an old toothbrush to gently scrub certain areas or stains on the bottom of the structure. In addition, we use a little white vinegar to postpone the future appearance of stains and algae.
- Once the previous operations have been completed, you can proceed to the rinsing of the whole surface of the fountain, in order to eliminate any residue of dirt and vinegar.
- Pour the little water you have used to wash the fountain and clean the pump of the fountain to avoid obstructions. Once you have finished this operation, fill the fountain with water again, adding a specific product which will slow down the appearance of stains and algae.
With these simple suggestions, you can keep our garden fountain in perfect condition. It is recommended to carry out these operations regularly, in order to preserve the aspect and above all the functioning of your garden water feature.
