Why put a water feature or fountain in your garden?
There are several reasons why adding a water feature or fountain to your garden can be a great idea. Adding a water feature or fountain to your garden can provide numerous benefits, from promoting relaxation and enhancing aesthetics to attracting wildlife and purifying the air, and can be a great way to elevate your outdoor experience.
- Add a sense of tranquility and relaxation to your outdoor space, as the sound of running water has a calming effect on the mind and body. This can make your garden a peaceful and inviting place to spend time in, whether you're reading a book, meditating, or simply enjoying the outdoors.
- Water features and fountains can be visually appealing and can enhance the aesthetics of your garden, creating a focal point and adding texture and movement to your landscape. They come in a variety of styles, from modern to rustic, and can be made from different materials, such as stone, metal, or concrete, allowing you to choose one that complements your garden's overall design.
- Fountains can attract wildlife to your garden, such as birds, butterflies, and frogs, which can add to the natural beauty and biodiversity of your outdoor space. This can be especially beneficial if you're an avid gardener or nature enthusiast, as it can help create a balanced ecosystem and provide a habitat for local wildlife.
- Water features and fountains can also help to purify the air in your garden, as they release negative ions into the atmosphere, which can counteract pollutants and allergens and promote a healthier environment.
Creating a special ambiance in your garden
To create a special ambiance in your garden a fountain is a perfect feature. Jones Garden Centre has a beautiful collection of fountains and water features available in all shapes and sizes. Whether you are looking for a stone water feature, a fountain with an Asian touch or made out of strong and maintenance-free material like polyresin and even with safe LED lights on it? The wide range of fountains at Jones garden centre has an eyecatcher for every style garden.
Water features made from strong and safe material
Most of our water features are made from Polyresin. And this is good to know! As water features are usually placed outside in gardens and backyards, it would be a shame to have it damaged by harsh weather conditions. Polyresin protects your water feature from unnecessary damages.
How does a water feature work?
Water features come in different shapes and sizes, but they all work by circulating water through a system of pipes, pumps, and filters. The basic components of a water feature are:
- Reservoir: This is the container that holds the water. It can be made of different materials, such as stone, concrete, or plastic, and can be placed above or below ground, depending on the type of water feature.
- Pump: This is the mechanism that moves water through the system. It is usually located at the bottom of the reservoir and is connected to a network of pipes and tubes that transport water to the fountain or waterfall.
- Fountain or waterfall: This is the part of the water feature that creates the visual and auditory effects. Fountains typically shoot water up into the air, while waterfalls allow water to flow over rocks or other structures.
- Filter: This is an optional component that helps to keep the water clean and free from debris, such as leaves, dirt, and algae. It can be a mechanical or biological filter, and is usually located in the reservoir or in a separate container.
The water feature works by first filling the reservoir with water, which is then pumped through the system by the pump. The water is usually filtered before it reaches the fountain or waterfall, to ensure that it is clean and clear. Once the water reaches the fountain or waterfall, it is released in a controlled manner, creating the desired visual and auditory effects.
Water features can be customized in many ways, such as by adding lighting, colored dyes, or different types of water jets, and can be adjusted to suit different preferences and settings. They require regular maintenance, such as cleaning and replacing filters, and may need to be drained and winterized in colder climates to prevent damage from freezing.
