The soothing and tranquil effect of a solar garden fountain is something that adds greatly to any garden design, and the variety of models that you can find these days means there is something for even the smallest garden.
It is no longer a necessity to have a pond, and you do not always need a mains water supply, for many designs of solar fountains for the garden come complete with recycling water reservoirs that mean they contain their own supply.
So what do you need to consider when looking at the many different types of solar powered garden fountains?
The most important factor is the design itself: do you want a traditional pond based fountain to fit into an already existing feature, or one that is a standalone type of fountain, perhaps a bird bath style that can fit in a corner of the smallest garden?
This depends on how much space you have and what type of feature you are trying to create. The spectacular traditional fountain is perfect for the bigger garden, yet for smaller spaces installing a pond may not be an option.
However, you can find very clever – and effective – waterfall style solar powered garden fountains that resemble a rockery and use water tumbling over the rocks – another consideration that is influence by the space available.
You also need to think about the times when the fountain will be able to run. You are buying a solar garden fountain because it costs nothing to run – it gets its power from the rays of the sun – yet there is little point in installing a solar garden fountain if you are not party to much sunlight, or if you put the panel itself in the shade.
The solar panel is the vital part of the operation and needs to be open to sunlight for the optimum time in order to keep the battery charged.
Perhaps the most important factor to consider is cost – make sure you know your budget before looking at the many very impressive models that can be bought these days; it is easy to get carried away and buy something that is very expensive and not suitable for your needs.
If you want a powerful pond fountain with lights and timers then you will have to pay – and these types of solar fountains for the garden are very impressive indeed – yet it is important to remember that there are many designs of solar powered garden fountains that are very affordable indeed, and provide a lovely effect for a great price.
