Where to put a Water Fountain

Water Features | March 30, 2021
Water Fountain

Small or large decorative fountains can add a calming touch to any yard and create a space for total relaxation. When considering where to put a water fountain in a yard, there are several key factors to consider. The size of the fountain, safety concerns, and environmental restrictions all play a role in determining where a fountain can go. At Fontana Ponds & Water Features, our team can assist you with finding the optimal location for your dream water fountain. Whether you are looking for a small decorative fountain or a large custom water feature, we can help you make an informed decision.


Potential Water Fountain Locations

Water fountains can serve a different purpose depending on their size and where they are located. To help you determine the best location for your wants and needs, our team has compiled a list of popular locations for water fountains.

In a Garden (Accent Fountain)

A small water fountain tucked into a flowerbed or beneath a tree can attract pollinators and encourage a healthy garden. By choosing a fountain that is slightly taller than surrounding plants, it becomes a creative accent for any garden. Ensure that your fountain is placed away from loud neighbourhood noises or household noises to maintain the relaxing sounds of running water.

The Middle of the Yard (Centrepiece)

A series of small decorative fountains or one large custom water feature in the centre of your yard is hard to miss. This type of water fountain can be enjoyed from afar or up close and creates an instant talking point for entertaining. Larger central fountains can more effectively block out ambient noise as well, making them a great choice for outdoor relaxation and Zen gardens.

By a Patio or Other Seating Area (Destination)

Water fountains can be a great destination or area for guests to gather. Whether you want to place a fountain by your patio or set it up in the far corner of your yard, both locations can create a relaxing hideaway for you, your family, and guests. Adding a path to the fountain and surrounding it with plants and comfortable seating can add further relaxation.
