If you’re interested in making a statement with your garden, why not look into installing your own concrete fountain? Available in a range of sizes and styles, concrete fountains add a distinctly impressive, and personal, air to any outdoor area, no matter the design.

Because concrete can be molded and set into any shape, you can easily choose the perfect design to compliment your individual garden. Try visiting home goods superstores, home improvement chains, garden centers and outdoor retailers for the best selection when looking for a concrete fountain.

If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, it is always possible to mold your own concrete fountain. Molds are available from garden centers and home improvement stores; simply add commercial concrete mix after it is mixed with water and voila, you’re well on your way to a do-it-yourself fountain. If you prefer to have a custom-built concrete fountain, you can build your own mold using wood, clay and/or plaster.

Because concrete is so durable and solid, a concrete fountain can last forever without fear of breakage or rusting; however, even concrete requires some extra attention in the cold winter months. With a few simple precautions, your concrete fountain can grace your garden for life:

  • Never allow leaves and debris to pile up in your fountain as this can damage the pump and/or filtration system
  • Water can cause severe damage to concrete if it freezes! As water freezes, it will expand and the pressure will crack and shatter the stone
  • Be sure to prevent standing water from collecting in your concrete fountain; try using a tarp to cover your fountain, as this prevents debris from entering the fountain and while keeping the water away
