An outdoor fountain is a worthy addition to your backyard. Not only will an outdoor fountain enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property, but it can also help create a more serene, relaxing backyard where you can spend a few minutes every day after work to de-stress your mind and body.
Consider hiring a fountain installer in Morristown for your project. A professional has the skills and expertise required to manage complex fountain installation projects from start to finish. They know what can go wrong during an installation and take precautions and preventive measures to avoid errors.
You need to plan your installation. Think about the potential challenges you can face and how to overcome them.
To help you get started, we have compiled a list of some things to consider when installing your outdoor fountain. Take a look.
Source of Power
When selecting an outdoor fountain, it’s important to consider the source of power. Different types of fountains have different power options. A most common option is it being hardwired.
A hardwired fountain needs an electric power source to function. Because a hardwired fountain will connect to your home’s electrical grid, hire a licensed electrician to install it.
One of the most important factors that will affect your outdoor fountain’s functionality and how often you will need to maintain it is its location. When determining the ideal location for your outdoor fountain remember these rules
➢ Larger marble garden fountains shouldn’t be placed against anything as anyone who wants to clean and maintain a marble fountain will need full access to the entire fountain
➢ Smaller fountains shouldn’t be placed in areas with lots of plants, flowers and grass or in areas where there are too many objects that can block them
➢ If your fountain needs a hardwired energy source or continuous water supply, take into consideration the location of electrical connections and water lines
Some of the most popular lighting options for outdoor fountains are submersible lights and external lights.
Submersible lights can be submerged in water. If you have a large outdoor fountain, submersible lights can help create a dramatic effect.
External lights can be installed in the area surrounding a fountain. Some common types of external lights are spotlights, hanging lights and path lights.
