A water fountain is one of the most fascinating and pleasant additions you could make to any garden.
Any moving water feature brings so much enjoyment: the sound is meditative, the sight is beautiful, and the possibilities are endless. With the modern convenience of solar panel power, you can place a fountain virtually anywhere in your yard or garden, never having to worry about stringing cords across the lawn or using electricity.

We want to share the inspiration and ideas that have piqued our interest, in the hopes that you too can enjoy this dynamic piece of garden zen.
Some of the fountains featured below are ready-made products you can purchase and have running right out of the box, with a bit of water added of course. Others are DIY projects that involve rigging a solar panel to a custom setup. The best projects often combine a bit of both sides, letting you fully personalize a unique water feature for your garden with the help of off-the-shelf parts
