While most of us would agree that fountains are a beautiful addition to any yard or garden, we may be hesitant to get one for ourselves because we think it’s such an involved or complicated project. Actually, you can get a quite simple fountain for your home and still enjoy its beauty and serenity.
How is this so? For one, residential fountains require a minimal amount of parts. These required parts include:
- Power Source
- Water delivery tube
- Screen to keep debris out of the reservoir
Given the simplicity of this list, a simple residential fountain that doesn’t require much handy work or maintenance is very doable. All you need to add to this list is your imagination. Here are the two best ideas for those who want a fountain with simple construction:
- The Spilling Fountain and Flower Container
Fountains do not need to be large. You can create a small fountain as part of a larger flower pot, or you can incorporate a flower pot into a fountain. Water gardens are also an option, especially if you have a really beautiful pot. A good tip is to make sure your water reservoir is large enough to go several days to a week without needing more water.
- DIY Kits
DIY kits are perfect for residential fountains because of variety and ease, though they don’t offer the same challenge of making a fountain from scratch. However, that’s also your biggest benefit. The beauty of these kits is that you have everything you need in one box.
You can still add in your imagination and customize a DIY fountain kit. You can use a fountain to enhance any outdoor living area. A good tip for all fountains is to add the maintenance to your yard care crew’s to-do-list. Larger fountains usually require less maintenance and smaller fountains usually require topping off more often. Strike a balance in labor by choosing the perfect sized fountain for your existing landscape design.
