Types of Outdoor Wood Fountains

Outdoor wood fountains combine the gifts of Mother Nature and manufacturer ingenuity. Two of the most popular materials for outdoor wood fountains are cedar barrels and bamboo.

Cedar barrel fountains bring warm and rustic country ambiance to gardens and patios. In red or natural single barrel fountains water flows from an old fashioned cast enamel hand pump. A submersible pump sitting on the bottom of the lined cedar barrel keeps water flowing. Three-tiered red or natural cedar fountains create a waterfall effect as the submersible pump circulates water from the bottom barrel up to the top barrel. From there water cascades into the middle barrel and back into the bottom barrel. Both the plugs into a GFI electrical outlet, ready to fill and enjoy.

Less, rustic, three-tier red or natural cedar corner fountains are a perfect fit for a patio or garden corner. Like cedar barrel fountains, these tiered corner fountains arrive ready to fill with water, plug into a GFI outlet. Water and relax to the soothing sound of water cascading over each tier.

And for Asian ambiance, Japanese Carved Granite Bamboo Fountains are perfect for a Zen garden, patio, porch or deck.
