There are formal and rustic fountains. Look for fountains made of concrete, fiberglass, natural stone, copper, pottery, wood, stainless steel and glass. Elaborate backyard waterfall fountains cascade into tropical ponds. Water flows down the surface of sleek free-standing vertical fountains. Multi-tiered fountains of graduated copper, ceramic or pottery pots add interesting depth and sound to a backyard or patio garden. Floating fountains add eye appeal to a swimming pool or pond. Statuary fountains reflect personal interests in sculpture. And, tabletop fountains make the most of limited space.

Birds and bird watchers enjoy activity around a birdbath fountain. A pond fountain gives energy, reduces algae and aerates potentially stagnant waters of a backyard goldfish pond. A fountain near the front door welcomes guests to your home. And, for the environmentally conscious consumer, it's easy to go green with a solar-powered fountain. Why stop with one fountain?
