Eco-Friendly Solar Garden Fountains in Your Patio

By Emma Spivey
The Importance of Water Features in Garden Design

The water features utilized in garden design not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the garden, but they can also create an atmosphere of serenity and symmetry. You want your garden to be a peaceful sanctuary for you and you friends, and you want it to represent your ideals of environmental consciousness.

Choosing the right water feature can add an appeal to your garden that would not otherwise be apparent. It is important to choose a water feature that compliments both the garden and your sense of style and taste. Solar garden fountains are one of the best eco-friendly water features. They are ideal for any garden design for a number of reasons.

Advantages of Eco-Friendly Solar Fountains
  • They saves you money because they do not use electricity
  • They do not require the use of unsightly wires
  • Solar fountains are easy and inexpensive to install
  • They are low maintenance
  • These fountains are an excellent decor for any garden or patio

While solar garden fountains are easier to install and do not add to your already expensive electric bill, these types of fountains do require some unique and special attention. To ensure that your fountain operates at its maximum potential, you will need to provide the following care:

  • Batteries will be required for the fountain to run at night
  • Solar panels need to be positioned to receive optimum sunlight during the day
  • Water movement and intensity will fluctuate throughout the day
  • Ensuring the cleanliness of the fountain is important

Benefits of a Solar Fountain

While solar garden fountains may require a bit more specialized attention that their electricity dependent counterparts, they are an eco-friendly way to enhance the look and feel of your garden. These fountains can provide tranquility and peacefulness without running up your electric bill each month.

You can enjoy your solar fountain without the worry of its negative impact on the environment or on your wallet. The price of solar fountains can range from $50 to $500, but the money you will save on electricity makes the solar fountain an excellent long-term investment.
