Water Feature & Fountain Types

There are many types of water features and fountains. If you want to add one to your garden, speak with a professional landscape architect. They can discuss your design preferences, colors, and materials and draw a blueprint of the layout. Once you know how much room you have to work with you can discuss different types of water features, cost of materials, access to water, and how pricing might vary depending on the irrigation piping and drainage needs.

Types of Water Features & Fountains

Some of the most popular types of fountains and water features include:

  • Urn Fountains
  • Sprinkler Fountains
  • Waterfall Fountains
  • Disappearing Waterfalls
  • Garden Wall Fountain
  • Large Round Fountain in Basin
  • Tiered Outdoor Fountains
  • Sphere Disappearing Fountain
  • Overflowing Pots
  • Spout Fountains
  • Circular Fountains
  • Square Fountains

Once you determine what kind of fountain you want to install you and your landscape design team can start researching color schemes, styles, finishes, and possible materials.

Benefits of Waterfalls and Fountains

Water features benefit people and animals in various ways. The soothing sounds of flowing water can aid in relaxation, as can the visual flow of water. Freshwater attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, birds, and other neat wildlife that nature lovers will truly appreciate. Also, a large fountain is a perfect centerpiece for formal landscape designs.

Fountain Colors, Finishes, & Materials

Many of the most common fountain design elements are pottery. Tall Urn fountains can be used to make disappearing fountains, while short, round pieces of pottery can be used to house the base water reservoir of a large centerpiece fountain. The latter fountain style is typically found in front yard and courtyard landscape designs as a statement piece in formal gardens. Different types of materials can be mixed to achieve the final design. Common materials include:

  • Clay Pottery
  • Brick
  • Pavers
  • Limestone
  • Flagstone
  • Tile
  • Travertine
  • Slate
  • Statues
  • Reservoir
  • Pumping Equipment
  • Automatic Timer (optional)
  • Lighting (optional)
