Landscape Architects – Design a Small Fountain Area in Your Garden

Landscape architects are always creating new themes and like any other form of fashion, when it comes to garden designing, there are seasonal fashions. The year 2009 is the year of Fountains. Fountains have become a part of the New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut landscape design and landscape architects are using them to the maximize the impact of their designs.

Fountain designing is not an easy task, especially since it has to look good, without cramping the space.

The motivation behind designing a fountain in the garden is derived from Japanese gardens where the flow of water helps create a feeling of peace and serenity. It helps the garden seem bigger than it is and generates a space for enjoyment when the harsh pressures of the day become cumbersome.

Landscape architects are working on designs far more creative than before. The typical waterfalls have given way to works of art that can be anything from a couple of hundred dollars to a couple of thousand.


  1. it does NOT look good at all
    looks like a pile of rocks and a clay jar someone forgot to pick up

  2. Joanna, I disagree. This is pretty cool! My opinion.
