Cooling Benefits of Your Outdoor Fountain:

- Brilliant for those hot summer months when certain plants need tons of water. The fountain can provide more humidity in the air surrounding the delicate flowers to keep them healthy.
- Outdoor fountains are gorgeous art pieces and a beautiful centerpiece in your garden, or anywhere you place them.

- Sitting by the fountain to cool off on a scorching summer day after you have been working in your garden can also help to cool or chill your mind.
We now know how amazing and versatile fountains are, but there are still more hidden surprises. Fountains are natural humidifiers, and we are naturally drawn to enjoy them up close. Historically, fountains were used in city centers to act as gathering spaces, water sources, and areas to cool down. It was almost as if the city planners knew the calming effects of fountains and water on the people of the communities. This technique is still used today in our urban cities. These are great stress relievers and can cool the mind with the sounds of the water music they make.
They also add aesthetic beauty and attract birds and butterflies to help your garden flourish. Finally, fountains bring the element of water to the garden, balancing the ecosystem of your space. With all this knowledge of how and why fountains are excellent coolers for our minds and bodies, let's practice them with some beautiful fountains for the home.
Outdoor Fountains to Cool You Down
