Design

Stone water features come in a range of designs from traditional to contemporary. You can choose from traditional tiered fountains to more modern designs. Most are made from a poly resin or resin and stone/sand mix. This gives them a natural stone look while also ensuring they are light, durable and weather resistant.

Stone water features are a great way to add an extra natural element to your garden space. The sound of water trickling or bubbling is very relaxing and make an outdoor space a pleasant place to linger. They make a great addition to quiet areas and meditation spaces in the garden, too.

Ease of setup

As they are easy to install, fuss-free and durable, stone water features for the garden are the easiest way to add the element of water to your outdoor space.

Garden water fountains are very easy to set up. They simply need to be filled with water and plugged into an outdoor power socket. Then just fill with water and switch on to enjoy the tranquil sound of trickling water in your garden.

Solar-powered water fountains are even easier to set up. They just need to be placed in a sunny spot and filled with water.

Water fountains will occasionally need to be topped up as some water may be lost through evaporation and on windy days.
