Have you been considering buying an outdoor fountain for your garden? What are you waiting for? Some people assume that these magical water elements are reserved for large gardens while others are under the impression that the deck or patio is where they should be placed. There are even folks still under the assumption that outdoor fountains are incredibly expensive. Well, a lot has changed in recent years. Not only are they more affordable than you might think, the selection is far more extensive than you will probably expect, especially here at Soothing Walls. Still not sure if your garden needs one? Here are five reasons why it does!

  1. Beautiful Display - The main reason to buy one for your garden is the display it will create. Who cares if you are the only person who will see it? You deserve to look at such beauty when you are outside, don't you? You do not necessarily need to have a large, dramatic piece to make the garden more attractive. Sometimes, the simplest pieces make the biggest impact. Our Recife Garden Fountain is a fantastic example. The design is simple, but it will attract a lot of attention. Plus, its petite height makes it ideal for low-growing flowers and shrubs.
  1. Promote Tranquility - There is really nothing else you can add to your garden that will promote a tranquil environment the way an outdoor fountain will. Water has long been used as an element of feng shui. The sound of the fountain will relax your mind and calm your nerves. Now you just need a hammock next to it for the best nap of your life.

  1. Noise Barrier - The sound of cascading or bubbling water may be music to your ears in more ways than one. Your ears will focus on the beautiful sound, so you will no longer be fixated on neighborhood noises that typically drive you insane while you are outside.
  1. Moisture - When positioned near flowers, ferns, and bonsai, the moisture being released in the surrounding area will be really appreciated by these thirsty species. Just make sure you keep an eye on the water level, especially during the hottest months.

  1. Invite Pollinators - Do you work hard in your garden, but you still end up with dull plants or flowers that are not even worthy of being cut for a table centerpiece? Maybe you need to work smarter; not harder. What you should be doing is making your garden more attractive to bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. Let them do the hard work for you. The fountain will be inviting to these pollinating species.
