Choosing the ideal water feature
Consider how much space you have available, knowing this will help you determine the size of water feature.
Decide whether you want your fountain to stand out as a focal point, or blend in with the surrounding landscape.
Ensure the area of ground you choose is flat and stable to prevent the water feature from shifting or spilling water.
You will need to connect the pump to a power outlet, so consider where your outlet points are and where you will place the cord. Or for solar-powered fountains, you will need to ensure the solar panel is exposed to sufficient daylight.
As a general rule modern sculptural and angular looking features will look best in rocky garden areas or patios, and softer looking fountains will suit a classical garden with clean borders and symmetrical arrangements.
