Outdoor urn water fountains are typically made of cast stone, terracotta, fiberglass, granite or marble. Outdoor urn fountains may be freestanding, placed on a pedestal in the center of a garden pond or perched atop a decorative column or garden table. Urns are also incorporated into outdoor wall fountains. A trio of outdoor urn water fountains are particularly attractive in graduated sizes surrounded by low pots of greenery or blooming plants.
A made to order Italian-style garden fountain is an example of a striking freestanding urn fountain that holds its own as a garden focal point. Hand-pottered from glazed terracotta clay, this striking urn fountain comes in a rich palette of colors like forest green, cobalt blue, shimmering turquoise and dramatic black. Standing on its own pedestal base, water circulates from ceramic basin to a decorative urn at the top and cascades back into the basin. A circular flower planter circles beneath the basin showcases a profusion of blooms or lush greenery. An added benefit: the fountain's durable, non-porous glaze is easy to clean and maintain.
