From a slight trickle to cascading flows, fountains and water gardens do more than provide eye appeal. The soothing sound of water is nature's calming aesthetic, reminding us to slow down, relax, take time to appreciate nature and our surroundings. For consumers, fountains certainly provide a final touch when designing the perfect outdoor living area.
