      Simplicity with Fountains in Garden Design

      Article Description:
      ====================

      Simplicity has always been the basis of good design, and adding a
      garden fountain is no exception. Also, good garden design is
      nearly as easy as it is simple! It's when you complicate things
      that you create issues.

      Simplicity with Fountains in Garden Design
      Copyright (c) 2007 Elizabeth Jean
      Garden Fountains
      http://www.garden-fountains.com



      Simplicity has always been the basis of good design, and adding a
      garden fountain is no exception. Also, good garden design is
      nearly as easy as it is simple! It's when you complicate things
      that you create issues. You have only a few things to worry with
      when planning to add a garden fountain
      (http://www.garden-fountains.com/) to landscape your home. They
      are: 1) A source of electricity 2) The placement area; and 3) How
      to create a harmonious landscape around your new water feature.
      Creative solving of these basic problems will beautify your home
      and greatly improve its beauty and value. Penciled plans are
      simple to prepare, easy to repair and worth their weight in gold
      when it's time to install new the new planters, statuary, and
      green material around your water fountain.

      The first things you need are several large sheets of graph paper
      with five or ten lines to the inch and plenty of plain tracing
      paper the same overall size, plus a pencil, ruler and eraser.
      Tape-measure your lot and draw its outline on the graph paper,
      making a special note where you want to install the outdoor
      fountain. Use a one-inch square of the graph to equal 10 square
      feet of your property. This places the usual 50 by 150-foot lot
      on the graph paper as a five by 15-inch rectangle. If your graph
      paper is too short for the entire plot plan use cellophane tape
      and stick two sections together, as needed. Then measure the
      house and its relationship to the fountain and the edges of your
      property. Transfer these dimensions to the graph paper, together
      with the size and location of the garage, driveway, walks and
      other permanent installations. It's also a good idea to mark the
      location of large trees, garden planters
      (http://www.garden-fountains.com/), statuary, or shrubs which are
      now growing.

      Next take the plot plan outside and carefully survey the area
      surrounding your home. Perhaps you can see a large telephone pole
      beyond the back property line. Mark it on the graph paper.
      Indicate all neighboring houses, large trees, statues, or other
      obstructions in your line of sight. Mark this survey of your view
      from both sides, the front and rear of your home Mark down
      everything you can see and indicate its approximate distance from
      your house. Now comes the fun part. Cover the plot plan with
      tracing paper and you're ready to go to work; adding the outdoor
      water fountain to your landscaping on the lot with everything you
      would like to have and enjoy. But just a minute! Before you
      charge madly off in all directions at once, take a breath and
      visualize your yard. Think of those things you like best
      (fountains? statuary? cast stone planters?) and mark them for
      easy reference. It's these notes. these ideas, that will
      springboard you to action in the proper direction when the truck
      pulls up and the fountain is delivered.

      With the notes you can return to your tracing paper and locate
      the essential factors of your garden plan: A place for the
      electrical connection, a garden bench, or the surrounding plants
      in their garden planting containers, etc. Then, sidewalks to the
      front and back doors. Perhaps a protected area for the
      children's play area. A dog kennel? If you plan to enjoy outdoor
      entertaining, now is the time to decide on how much paved or
      bricked area would be needed to surround the barbecue.

      Placing your garden fountain is common sense. If you're on a
      firm, level surface, no problem. However the ground is earth, or
      lawn, you'll need to do a little preparation. Dig down about two
      inches, to firm ground. Then add a few inches of packed sand or
      pea gravel. Use a level, and you're all set. This will reduce or
      eliminate the effect of any natural leveling.

      Keep in mind, of course, the view from various parts of the yard,
      protection from prevailing winds and use of existing trees. You
      don't your fountain hidden from view, nor do you want the water
      flow to fly around the yard if you place it in a windy area.
      Large water features are no longer only for the wealthy. The
      landscaping of your property is a good chance to plan the
      location of your fountain. Properly chosen, a water fountain can
      be the centerpiece of a masterful garden design.
