Benefits of Outdoor Patio Fountains
Placing a fountain outside on your patio certainly has amazing benefits for you and your home. We all know that fountains symbolize life because water is an essential element in nature. According to Vastu Shastra, which loosely translates into the science of architecture, the flowing water in your patio fountain symbolizes the flow of money, happiness, and love. Everyone wants that type of flow!
Where to place your patio fountain:
- To fully enjoy your fountain make sure it can be seen and heard from indoors and outdoors.
- The principles of Feug Shi suggest placing your fountain near and or facing an entrance to the home to invite positive energy into your space.
- The fountain requires a pump, so it needs to be within a certain proximity to an electrical outlet to keep the water flowing. (at least 6 feet)
- Place it in an area where it can drown out excess noise pollution from the street if possible.
Outdoor patio fountains are also a great way to create a peaceful oasis and add a decorative accent to your landscape. The lyrical repetitiveness of the cycled water creates a relaxing ambiance unlike anything else outside of nature. Patio fountains create the wonderful water music, ranging from loud and bold to a low bubbling echo. All of this water music depends on the sizes, shapes, types, and sound levels of the patio fountains.
The Passaros Fountain is a medium sized patio fountain, but is similar to the Equinox Garden Terrace Fountain pictured above. They are similar in the fact that they both have that low bubbling echo from the top spout, but because the bowl is a bit deeper it creates a bolder more dynamic splashing sound into the basin below.
Enjoy the calming sounds of these bubbling, echo fountains!
