Improving Your Garden by Adding a Fountain

| Articles | August 31, 2012

A great way to spice up your garden is to add a water feature. These can

be both soothing and aesthetically appealing. I’ve found that there’s

nothing more relaxing than sitting on a bench next to my garden and

listening to my fountain while I read a good book or do some studying.

Putting in a water feature is fairly easy and relatively inexpensive, and

will add immensely to the pleasantness of your garden. Also, the

maintenance level is minimal.

Usually, people install fountains for the benefit of the natural ambience

it provides. For some reason, being around a gorgeous scene of water gives

you a positive energy. This is also good if you practice Tai Chi or some

form of yoga or meditation. The constant drone of the water is exactly

what most people need to concentrate on what they are doing. Even if

you’re not into that kind of stuff, just being in a garden with a fountain

has a sort of meditative quality to it, even if you’re not trying to do

so. I recommend it to anyone.

When you first decide to put in a fountain, you need to put great care

into picking out one that will go well with the rest of your garden. If

you have any other decorations, you want to consider if it goes well with

your motif. Does the fountain you’re considering stand out in your garden

like a sore thumb, or does it look like it was meant to be there? If

you’re like me, you can’t naturally tell whether the fountain will be a

good addition to your garden just by looking at it. So my solution was to

bring my sister (a natural at fashion design and that kind of stuff) along

with a picture of my garden to the store. I was able to get her expert

opinion, as well as see for myself what it would look like. By doing this

I was able to pick a beautiful rock fountain that goes marvelously with

the rest of my garden.

However, I still had a slight problem with supplying my fountain with

power. You see, my garden isn’t very close to my house. I thought it would

look pretty tacky to run an extension cord across my yard, so I had to

come up with another solution. I discussed my situation with a Home Depot

employee, and he quickly found me the exact solution I needed: an

extension cord meant for being buried! All it took was a few hours of

digging a small trench across my yard, and I had power to my fountain

without an unsightly cord running across my yard. After I got over this

little hitch, my fountain plan went beautifully.

So if you’re looking for a way to make your garden a more classy and

beautiful place to be, I hope you consider installing a fountain. The

whole process is surprisingly inexpensive, and I think that you will be

very happy with the results. Having a fountain in your garden is not only

soothing, but it also adds a lot of character to an otherwise bland

garden. Remember, gardens are not just for giving us vegetables! A garden

is a place to go when you want to retreat from the outside world and dwell

in your own thoughts with no disturbance.
