It's certainly possible to experience have elements of an aquatic environment outside, right in your own garden without having a pond! How's this? By utilizing outdoor garden fountains in your landscaping.

Outdoor garden fountains provide a tranquil, peaceful element to your already beautiful garden surroundings. Just imagine, after a long day at the office (or at home for stay-at-home/work-at-home parents!) going out to a seat within your lush garden area and being able sit and listen to the therapeutic aquatic sounds that outdoor garden fountains can bring!

The kinds of outdoor garden fountains are so varied, you are certain to find one that fits not only your physical size but also your fiscal budget! If you have room for a large piece, there are many different options available from concrete statue-like fountains to even metal ones made of copper or stainless. Personally, I love the patina of copper outdoor garden fountains, but I kind of like the "aged look" in all my decor, including indoor decorating!

If you're up for a project, you can even try your hand at creating your own outdoor garden fountains. It can be a bit complex, but is fairly straightforward. When planning your fountain area, make sure you allow enough room for other elements you may wish to include such as a rock garden area, perhaps some greenery and even additional statue/decorating figures to give your area a personal touch. The items you'll need for actual outdoor garden fountains can vary, but the basics include:

1. A bottom where the pump will be and the water will return. This could be a large pot, a trough-- just something large enough to hold the volume of water you are hoping to cycle through your fountain.

2. A top where the water will emerge. This can be a small pot, a little creature-- something decorative that expresses your style!

3. The middle where the water will be received and returned. This could be pebbles, rocks, or you can even leave it empty for the "freefall" effect.

4. A pump. Aside from allowing enough space, this is the most crucial aspect of outdoor garden fountains. Without proper planning, you could end up with a pump that doesn't pump enough water or give the proper lift to get the fountain flowing.

With a little bit of planning you can create, outdoor garden fountains that suit your fancy and that are works of art!
