Add Tranquility to your Patio Cover with these Zen-like Fountains


Many people like to express themselves in different ways. Are you looking for some new ideas to add some personality to your outdoor patios and gardens? Summer is almost here, and outdoor BBQs and summer pool parties are about to begin. It’s time for you to add some relaxing Feng Shui to your backyard. We found the best four Zen like fountains to add into your summer tranquility.



The first fountain is one of the most popular ones. It is the alpine rock waterfall. The gray stones you see are actually made of fiberglass. This is used to help prevent against cracking or neutralizing over time in the hot summer sun. This fountain gives you a ton of options. You can adjust the flow of water to create soothing sounds to add that peacefulness to your backyard. You also have the option to add in some LED lights. These are perfect for when you have company over in the summer. This fountain would be ideal in any backyard.




Next, we have the thinking gnome. This is also a very popular fountain that people tend to have in their backyards. The thinking gnome is made of poly-resin with fiberglass. This again helps preserve it in the warm summer sun. The gnome is a fun way to add some personality to your patio. It will be a conversation piece at to your summer party.





The fire fountain is another one that is great for your outdoor patio. It is the most perfect piece for those chilly summer nights. The fire fountain is made out of glass fiber and reinforced concrete. It runs on plain paraffin fuel. The fuel isn’t included when you purchase this fountain but is very inexpensive. The fire will you keep you and your company warm and enjoying the outdoors into the late evening. I highly recommend this fountain for your patio.





Lastly, we have the The Longmeadow. This fits perfectly in any backyard. The tower like features it has also allows it to be a birdbath as well. This definitely incorporates a calming vibe to your backyard. The Longmeadow fountain gives two types of soothing sounds. One is the sound of the running water and the other is the sound of birds chirping with excitement. It is made out of concrete and requires no plumbing, therefore making this the perfect piece for your backyard.




These four fountains are truly amazing and add the calming and diversity to your backyard. Summer is approaching quickly, so don’t miss out on adding these Fung Shui type fountains to your backyard.
