Stone water features offer one of the classiest and most elegant options for water features. Stone is very flexible where artistic elements are concerned and offers a great deal of strength and durability on top of it. The variety of designs available is staggering where this fountain material is concerned. For elegance, it's hard to do better.
For tiered fountains, vase fountains and other classic designs, stone water fountains are a natural match. These fountains offer something of the ancient world, even when the designs are very modern. They also blend seamlessly with a landscaped environment. This combination of form and function has made stone fountains a hit for literally thousands of years.
Stone water features can be made in most any size imaginable. Remember that some of the largest fountains in the world are made of stone! One of the most elegant things about a stone water fountain is that it can look good in large and small sizes. Stone fountains can be imposing and sizeable or incredibly ornate and small fountains that are mounted on a wall or in a corner.
Stone fountains can definitely be heavy. This will entail specific concerns where placing the largest, primarily outdoor, models are concerned. Most owners who opt for the largest and heaviest of stone fountains are seeking exactly the effect they offer: timeless, elegant and ultimately enduring, often for generations.
Select a stone fountain that reflects one's personality. For example, while many stone fountains have classic design elements such as several tiers and animal motifs, there are also models which feature spheres and other modern design elements. The material itself tends to have enough classic appeal that the modern designs do not detract in any way from the overall effect.
