One of the features of our home will be the center courtyard with a water feature. The sound of water is relaxing and adds to the tranquil feel of a courtyard. It helps to cancel out the noises of a city and enables the residents to focus and concentrate on whatever is at hand. I have spent some time researching fountains on the internet and the share number of styles is mind boggling. I have been saving images of fountains that I feel may give us the look we are going for. My first choice seems to me to be the most obvious.. I like the traditional cascading look of a tiered fountain.
I really like the look of these types of fountains when there is plants and foliage around them like this:
And then I found some of the fountains that are mounted along the wall which also cascade and I'm sure that water would 'tinkle'. I like this look too. It may be prettier than the traditional cascading fountains.
It so hard to choose! I'm sure I will change my mind several time in the coming months. I do have to remember that CQ has a choice in all of this too and maybe our architects, Roger and David already have some ideas of their own. Does anyone else have a fountain? And what kind do you have?
