Whether you live on the east or west coast, the winter of 2014 is one most of us are ready to let go of. The continuing cold weather and many snowy days make us forget that soon warmer weather will arrive. The official start of Spring is only 16 days away, so now’s time to begin planning.
Early March is the perfect time to begin making your outdoor space into the dream you’ve always wanted. It is important to always remember that many of our manufacturers make their products to order. This gives you the option of choosing the perfect patina, or finish, for your cast stone piece. This also means that the piece you choose will not be ready for shipment in a day or two. Instead, your order may take 2 to 4 weeks before it is ready to arrive at your home. That’s why it’s the perfect time of year to start picking out the perfect pieces. They will then arrive just in time for the weather to break and your beautiful outdoor space to take form.
Add a Fountain
If you have always wanted a water feature for your outdoor space, there is no better time then now. Water fountains create a beautiful, tranquil sound that can easily turn any space into a wonderful escape. Placing fountains strategically in an outdoor area can make them because the single showcased piece. You may have always placed all of your time and energy into making sure your potted plants look beautiful, but this year, consider an alternative option: water fountains. With so many options, you can easily find the perfect fit for your outdoor space.
One Size Does Not Fit All
With limited outdoor space, for those of you who live in apartments or condos, hanging water features are a great option. They can easily be mounted near a seating area, or simply hung on a wall to maximize your walking area. Terrace or tabletop fountains are also a great option if you are not allowed to hang fountain in your rental. Make sure to choose a fountain that is designed to be left out in the elements. We love the Flores Mini Series Fountain for its round shape and flower-like design.
If you have a larger space to work with, and have been eying up all the beautiful photos you find in your monthly magazines, then consider a tiered fountain. Classical tiered designs can take on a natural classic look or even a modern one. This fountain type can complete any space.
