This article provides an overview of the top 6 water fountains to consider for your Northern Virginia garden.

It covers the features and benefits of each fountain, as well as the pros and cons of each option. It also provides tips on how to choose the best water fountain for your needs.

Here are some of the different types of water fountains installation we typically see in Northern Virginia that you can consider for your backyard.

Top 6 Water Fountains to Consider for Your Garden

Waterfall Fountains

Waterfall fountains mimic the look and feel of natural fountains.

Despite its small size, a strategically placed waterfall fountain can catch the eye of all of your guests.

Some waterfall fountains have a complex operating mechanism, but minimalist, user-friendly versions are also available.

The cost of waterfall fountains can vary depending on the type of materials used.

Birdbath Fountains

If you want to attract birds to your garden, add a birdbath fountain to it.

A birdbath fountain can provide water for drinking and a space where birds can preen. Birdbath fountains also make excellent focal points.

They are very easy to install and maintain and more affordable than many types of other water fountains.

Freestanding Fountains

Freestanding fountains usually have a basin. Some common materials for freestanding fountains include fiberglass, cast stone, porcelain, and metal.

A freestanding water fountain can be designed to have its own water reservoir and hence, need not be placed near a water supply.

These fountains are very easy to install and maintain.

Cascading Fountains

Cascading fountains allow water to flow downward from one level to the next.

They are designed in a way that water moves or cascades smoothly to the bottom level. Most cascading fountains have three distinct tiers.

These fountains are famed for their ability to promote relaxation.

Wall Fountains

As the name implies, a wall fountain can be built into a wall.

The biggest advantage of wall fountains is that they use less space than many other types of water fountains.

A wall fountain can be designed to blend into the surroundings. These fountains are available in a variety of designs such as vintage, contemporary and Asian styles.

In most cases, wall fountains are installed on the sides of garden sheds or barns. Most variants have some kind of spout that spews water into a basin located below.

Spouting Fountains

Spouting fountains spew water into the air. Although they look expensive, these fountains are quite easy to build.

A spouting fountain should be placed in a body of water. Spouting fountains usually have a submersible pump that allows them to effectively discharge water.

Placing a spouting fountain in a pond is a great way to add charm and beauty to the outdoor space and make it more enjoyable.
