Zen Tabletop Fountain: Soothe Your Mind

It was time to shed off those layers of clothes and turn off the furnace. This was my favorite time of the year. The robins were chirping and the buds were forming on the trees. This year it was my desire to turn my garden into my sanctuary.

Wall mounted garden fountains achieve the same effect as any other fountain. The serenity and tranquility of water trickling down is an essential element to any outdoor setting. The element of water enhances any environment by just its visual presence. These fountains seem to touch the human spirit deeply and personal. The sound that comes from a fountain is perfect to help you unwind at the end of a busy day. It is soothing and relaxing which creates peace and harmony.

Design its surroundings. If you have a stone landscape, your most dominant accessories in the area will be stones. Aside from a đài phun nước đẹp, you can improve the area by using stones for the walkways. Also surround the fountain with flat stones such as bricks to form something like a platform. This will be a place where you can stand on while looking over the fountain.

For each stone, choose it based on its color, texture, as well as size. Each feature should be fitting to the image that you are imagining. It is even better if you will include in your plan an elaborate definition of what stone or rock is placed in this and that location in the fountain.

You start with a large sized terracotta or stone bowl as your foundation. This will be the basin pot where the overflowing water will fall. Drill a hole out of the bottom center of the bowl if there isn’t one already. Now take the cord from your pump and run it through the hole. For larger holes, cover with duct tape and fill with Bondo. Smaller holes can be filled in with silicon. When that has dried, coat the inside with a water sealant. Now you should be ready to place the basin in your desired location. Although not crucial, try to make the basin as level as possible.

This can be done sans plumbing, as a matter of fact. You can just drill holes in the bottom of your ‘statue’ and then another one on the top. With a knife, you can make the holes bigger so it would allow the plastic tubing to pass through easily.

Another consideration as far as location, is the visual impact of the fountain. Do you want to see it from your patio, or do you want it tucked into a remote corner. Sometimes placing a fountain at the end of a garden path, tucked into a remote corner of the garden will help to add to the relaxing effect of the fountain. You may also want to consider placing several small fountains throughout the garden, to provide accents here and there.
