Modern Water Fountain Materials

Materials are quite important when it comes to choosing a modern water feature. The right fit depends on both design and the construction of the fountain. So let's see some of the most common materials used for making them:

Cast Stone: This is a durable material that is suitable for almost every garden. It includes marble, rock, granite, etc and is fiber-reinforced. Stone is often used for modern water fountains because it corresponds well to the idea of an elegant and clean design. Keep in mind that this is a very heavy material so you might need some help with installing the fountain in your garden. Many of our large outdoor fountains are made of cast stone. There is also glass fiber reinforced concrete that gives this same sleek look but weighs much less. In fact, you can even pair your fountain with modern pots and planters in the same finish to make your backyard look perfect. For an even more complete look, pair your garden water fountain with a matching cast stone garden bench.

Ceramic: Ceramic can often be seen in modern waterfalls fountains. It is a versatile material that comes in various colors. It is super durable and rarely shows any signs of use. Modern water fountains that have ceramic details are sophisticated and classic. It is used for making the fountain sound more soothing and pleasant to the ears.

Resin: Resin is very interesting because it has the capability of mimicking various materials. It is a budget-friendly option so you will be able to get a gorgeous modern water fountain for just a fraction of a price. It is also very durable and will look brand new for years. Plus, it is quite easy to clean and scratches will not be a huge problem because they can be removed quickly.
