A tier fountain is one of the few choices in life where one can seldom go wrong. For a garden, a tiered fountain is one of the most classic choices and will fit well with just about any environment. Tiered fountains offer all of the aesthetic elements which make fountains so popular. New materials make them easier to handle than ever before.
A fountain's main aesthetic strong points are its appearance and its sound. A tier outdoor fountain offers both of these elements. The tiers produce a constant and relaxing sound of water while the design offers a great deal for the eyes. The constantly-cascading sheets of water are hypnotic and very relaxing.
Not all tier garden fountains are of the stacked bowl variety. Some of them are designed to be against a wall and offer a charming cascade. Others are very low in profile and are suitable for more Oriental styles of garden. Tiers are one of the basic elements of fountain design and are used in myriad ways by designers.
Tier water fountains, because of their complexity of design, can be heavy when made of materials such as stone. There are specialty materials, however, which can greatly reduce the weight of these features. Material such as fiberglass make durable and beautiful tiered fountains which are easy to manage. The specialty materials are also available in a wide variety of colors and designs.
High-quality tier outdoor fountains can provide a long service life. The setup is very easy, as well, and well within the abilities of most homeowners to perform. Some of the specialty material models are light enough that one person can easily move them from place to place.
