Before you Start
Things to consider before you start your next fountain project.
The size and scale of your fountain should complement the other features of your yard, including your landscaping and terrain.
Consider how the fountain will enhance your landscape. Examine all potential sites while considering accessibility, safety, and shade.
Direct sunlight enables rapid algae growth. If you wish to minimize algae growth, you will need to choose a location that is partially or completely shaded. Consider placing an umbrella or awning in the area near your fountain if natural shade is unavailable. Also consider using one of our Low Water Shut-off Fountain Pumps.
