Fountains & Urn Construction | Water Gardens
If you are looking to add a splash of water to your landscape but not yet ready for a pond or waterfall, then a fountain landscape (fountainscape) is perfect for your outdoor space. The sight and sound of running water of a fountainscape can be installed at a fraction of the price of a pond or waterfall.
Fountainscapes also turns an average landscape into a show piece that’s the conversation piece of all your neighbors and friends. The greatest aspect of these outdoor fountains, aside from the lack of maintenance, is the variety in which the fountains come!
How Do These Outdoor Fountains Operate?
Outdoor fountains and fountainscapes operate pretty similary to those of pondless waterfalls with their reservoir system.
- The Fountain: Water moves up through the fountain and spills out. With fountainscapes, the amount of water coming out of the actual fountain is generally very low so there is not much noise associated with these features.
- The Pondless Reservoir: Much like the reservoir in the standard Pondless Waterfall, a fountainscape sits on top of a water collection reservoir. This is a actually a square plastic tub that has the same job as the Aquablocks. Water will pass through the gravel (which still acts as a filter for large debris) into the reservoir. From there, it is pumped through a pipe that is connected to the hose that resides inside the fountain.
The Benefits Of A Fountains Hardscape
If space is an issue, an outdoor fountain may be your best bet. These can take up very little space (think 4′ x 4′) and pack a punch for the creativeness that lives in such a small area.
It also requires as much maintenance as the pondless water feature, which is next-to-nothing! Since there are no koi fish or aquatic plants, these can be very easy to keep looking nice!
The Urn Fountain also comes with a small LED light that is fixed around the spout in the top of the fountain so you can enjoy your feature even when the sun goes down.
The standard setup of The Spillway Bowls are to have one bowl spill into another, which then slowly cascades down the sides of the bowl into the gravel. You’re able to add multiple bowls so the possibilities of fountain setup are endless!
The average Fountainscape price is $5,000 & up. The cost ranges are dependent on the type of fountain installed and the number of actual features.
