The concrete garden furniture elements (including concrete garden fountains) are among the most appreciated; the first characteristic that distinguishes them is certainly their robustness and durability: cement resists weathering, cold and water. Furthermore this material is very versatile, in fact with special molds it is possible to prepare fountains of any shape, from the most common wall fountains to the grandiose circular fountains, to be placed at the center of our garden. Then adding to the pure and simple cement, grit or pebbles of various colors and shapes, products with a very pleasant appearance are obtained, reminiscent of stone, which certainly remains a material with a much higher cost than cement.
Therefore it is possible to insert fountains in the garden with the most different shapes, which can be adapted, in shape and color, to any garden; many fountain models are then placed against the houses, choosing a cement product it is possible to choose the color shade that best suits the color of our house.Thanks to the versatility of the material, many companies are able to offer their customers the possibility to customize the shape and color of the fountains, so as to satisfy even the most demanding customers.The shapes
Generally speaking, cement garden fountains they can be divided into two types: the fountains to be placed against a wall and those that can stand on their own; in the first genus we have quite classic shapes, with a plaque that contains the tap and a plate that is positioned below the plate. The fountains that instead support themselves can be of a very different type, from the simplest column fountains, consisting of a column of various sizes, to which the tap is attached, under which a water collection tank can be arranged. For those who have a large garden there are also circular fountains, with a central column, around which there is a large water collection tank; or there are circular fountains without a central column, whose tub rests directly on the ground. Generally the fountains with a circular basin can be enriched with statues of various shapes and sizes, which make the fountain itself even more striking and decorative.
Concrete garden fountains: How to choose our fountain
Surely the first element to be taken into account is the position available to house the fountain; secondly we consider the use we want to make of it: if it is a pure decorative element we can turn to a large circular fountain, if instead it is a fountain to be used as a water source in the garden or in the garden, perhaps it is advisable to use a fountain with a column or, better, one to lean against the wall.
