The Different Benefits To Having Fountains

There are various advantages to having fountains in a garden.  Garden fountains are able to produce relaxing sounds, they are beautiful, and they are highly appreciated by humans and animals.  In addition to these dominant benefits, fountains also present with several subtle advantages.  For example, the falling water can increase the surrounding air's level of humidity by injecting moisture into the air and making it fresher or cleaner to breathe.  By injecting moisture into the air, fountains are also able to remove airborne pollutants or allergens from the air.

1.  The Beauty Of A Garden Fountain

One of the first things people notice when they come across a fountain is the sight of the water rising and falling according to outdoor water feature ideas.  The attraction of this water movement is obvious.  Take into consideration 'Old Faithful' in the Yellowstone National Park where people flock to witness the working of this stunning geyser that has been functioning for longer than most people have been living.  At regular intervals the pressurized steam from the depths of the earth will be released via a hole in the earth's crust and 'Old Faithful' will spout forth the steam through its narrow opening.  This is an intriguing spectacle that produces a sense of awe among all people who witness it.

Fountains available on the market today will rarely mimic forces of nature similar to 'Old Faithful'; however, a smaller backyard water fountain can provide us with joy at anytime of the night or day.  Garden water fountains are easily purchased and range from small models to tall fountains that present with their own ponds.  The tall options are preferable because they increase the babbling sound of the water and allow placement of lights to provide a shining effect on the water.

2.  The Advantage Of Falling Water

Aside from the unique visual display, a water fountain presents with several benefits that can be experienced on a subtle or unconscious level.  Water is crucial for survival and people are made mostly from water, so it makes sense that we would view clean water as a positive thing.  Unconsciously, all people hope that they are never left far from water or need to live without it for a long time.  When a cascade of water is produced, this element is injected into the surrounding air and the particles of water mix with the air to provide us with water.

The added moisture in the air is highly beneficial as it humidifies the air making it healthier and easier to breath.  Outside of the human body, the water particles will combine with airborne particles and remove any dust or free radicals from the air.  This is why air feels cleaner or fresher when in the vicinity of a fountain.  One of the best methods to feel this effect is by hiking up to the base of a waterfall and breathe in deeply. 

Many people perform this act at the Yellowstone Falls in the Yosemite National Park in the US.  It feels so good that many will sit down in the spot and enjoy the environment.  If you are fortunate, you may be able to see a rainbow over the waterfall - a natural effect of the spraying water from the waterfall.  Waterfalls and rainbows have always been considered a sign of beneficence and good fortune.

3.  Water In A Garden

The majority of people do not reside by a natural waterfall; however, it is possible to bring water fountains to landscapes and gardens as a substitute for waterfalls.  This has been done for thousands of years and the type of fountain used will depend on the country, its culture, and the dreams of the person using the fountain.  Water fountains are available in all sizes ranging from balcony urns to large status.  Nowadays, the fountains can also be created using different colors to suit the structure of the garden.
