A fountain is an aesthetically pleasing and soothing outdoor addition to any home or yard. Consider whether you want the fountain as the focal point or a transitional piece. Whether you install a fountain near a garden or walkway, it is sure bring joy and life into your yard. Locate the perfect place for your new addition and call your local plumber to begin planning.

Installing a Yard Fountain

Installing a fountain usually isn’t a DIY project; it is something you should hire a professionally trained plumber for. To know how much piping you’ll need and approximately how long the project will take make sure to plan the fountain location with your water supply source in mind. Since water is a precious resource that shouldn’t be wasted, installing a small fountain with a big appeal is the most ecologically friendly option.

If you have decided to install a smaller fountain you will most likely need a submersible pump. This is the cost effective and time efficient option, because smaller pumps are generally less expensive and easier to install. Underground piping can be difficult to install, but is very important to the overall performance of your fountain. Have a plumbing expert install the pipes and you can rest assured that your fountain will perform without hassle for many years to come. The last thing you want is for your pipes to start leaking after you’ve set the soil and grass around the fountain, wasting water and money. If you have a leak in an existing foundation, plumbers can properly repair the pipes. They can also install a lining system to your pipes to avoid future aggravation.

Landscaping Around A Fountain

After you have the pipes properly installed by a plumber, decorate the area surrounding your fountain. Fountains, especially smaller fountains, can really stand out if you design a mini garden around them. Adding billowy grasses, fleshy succulents, and showy orchids give smaller fountain more of a presence. Adding foliage and flowerings will enhance the atmosphere of your fountain and make it even more of a tranquil getaway.
