Anytime that I can quiet myself in this crazy life I’m in, so when my friends at Aquascape® reached out, I took a look around their website for quite awhile before deciding what I thought would work for us.
How To Easily Add A Fire Fountain In The Garden
I chose a Fire Fountain in the large size, since we have a pretty big area that I thought it would be perfect in. Sitting on crushed rock would be best way to keep it level. I shared a little bit of a romantic story about how we recreated our French Bistro area both HERE and HERE. Read both for the romance factor;-)
The set up of the Fire Fountain is beyond easy…seriously, you just need some muscle power or a cart to get it into place. It’s made of glass fibre reinforced concrete and is heavy, so we rolled it along the grass sideways to get it into place. Totally worked! Listen to that relaxing sound of the fountain…
It comes with a very easy to understand installation pamphlet and you just hook up the fountain pump inside, add water and rock, plug it into a grounded power source and enjoy. For the fire portion that can be used as an option (we aren’t using the fire during the day) you add some paraffin fuel (as you’d use in a tiki torch) and light it.
I can see many cozy evenings just sitting out here chatting with a glass of wine come fall.
When I’m not using the fire this summer the fountain will run to relax and sooth and flowers set on the top are optional but necessary for me.
We live on the water that’s beyond the shrubbery, but you can’t hear it from where we sit…so the sound will be enjoyed. I really love the idea of a backyard pond or patio for the right setting. You can see all of the ponds and fountains and ideas for creating your own water features right on the Aquascape® website.
What do you think? Isn’t a fire fountain a great concept? My daughter in Texas is loving on this project and has already been hinting around on one for her little patio. You truly don’t need a large space to make your outdoors beautiful and relaxing.
I was compensated for this post by Aquascape® but all thoughts are my own and I only bring you products and ideas that I truly love.
