What to look for when buying a Garden Fountain?
Let’s give some clues and tips of what would be the aspects to look at when deciding to buy a fountain for the garden.
- Water intake: It is important to take into account if we have a water supply where we want to place the source, since in case of not having it or having the possibility, we need a source with a closed circuit that does not need an external water intake.
- Size: Here you will find all kinds of fonts and sizes, it is important to see what size fits best in your garden, if the other details and garden ornaments are minimalist the ideal would be to buy a fountain for the garden of the same style. It is also important to check the size for the space we have where we are going to install it or place it.
- Font style: This is a very personal factor of each one, but it is very important to remember that we must take into account, since being mainly a decorative element, it will have to be in accordance with the other components of the garden. If we are looking for a strong contrast with the source and the ground is white gravel, a black font can be a great option to get that contrast.If we want a more balanced style we will look for a lighter color font that is better integrated into the existing decoration.
- With solar energy: Many of the current sources work with a solar panel, which can be integrated into the design of the source itself, dissimulating it between the parts of it or can include the plate with a separate cable, in this case usually have a cable long to place the solar panel away from the source and hide it. The great advantage with this type of sources is that we do not need water with pressure or an electrical outlet to operate the source, since it is totally autonomous, ideal for gardens or terraces where we do not have this possibility or do not want to do the installation.
