Cool fountains – Choose a decorative fountain for inside or outside the home, depending on where you place it, what you want it for and how much you want to spend. Fountains spill, bubble, spray and splash and come in many styles, including fountains with statues or urn base or stacked rocks or boulders, wall mounted fountains, table fountains and independent container fountains.
Statuary- or urn-based cool fountains seem to be constantly overflowing. This type of fountain looks good even when it is not running. It should be placed in deep water that constantly pumps water upward through the apparatus by a circulation pump. A statuary- or urn-based fountain can also be placed in a wider and shallower reservoir. Some pond less seems as if the water comes from inside the statues. Achieving this effect by placing the water reservoir below ground level or floor and cover with a screen. Set the urn or statue on the grate with small stones or pebbles to disguise the source of the water.
Stone shipyards stock large pre-drilled boulders or stones for use in building a fountain. If not in stock, they will custom drill boulders for you. This type of cool fountains creates a cool and moist environment for the area around it. Creating a waterfall effect with several rocks or boulders, or pump water through a large boulder, secured with a spray head to show water play in your room or in your garden.
