Best Outdoor Fountains for Small Yards


The peace and tranquility a fountain can bring to an outdoor space is unlike anything else. The calming purr of the running water and the elegant flow in which it pours over its display creates a mood, a serene and beautiful environment to sit and enjoy your patio or backyard. And to assume that your yard is simply too small to accommodate an outdoor fountain is a big misconception. Any space can have a fountain; everything from a small apartment balcony to a lush and vast backyard. You just have to know where to look. Here are 5 great outdoor water fountains that would be perfect for any small yard.

1) Driftwood Garden Fountain

This beauty is simple yet full of character with its driftwood design. The water flows over the driftwood shape and pools in a small, rectangular basin. No plumbing or installation required. This little guy recycles the water with an interior pump. Even better, this outdoor water fountain is only 14” long and would make a great addition to any small outdoor space.

2) Camellia Garden Fountain

This model could fit nicely in any garden or flower bed. But it would also sit proudly atop any patio table or the end of a step. Its size only takes up a mere 12” in diameter, so it really could fit just about anywhere, especially since it’s a water recycling model. A ceramic build with a cute flower design on top, this water fountain was meant for small spaces.

3) Bird Water Fountain

A tiny balcony, a small patio table, or a modest ledge, this water fountain is just right. Bring a little bit of nature into a city setting with the sweet, life-sized bird sculptures that are built in to the water fountain. It literally only occupies 10” of space so this sweet little water fountain could go just about anywhere, even a window ledge if need be.

4) The Kenzo Fountain

Hoping for something a little more modern? The Kenzo model is the ideal water fountain for modern as well as small spaces. Any outdoor area with less than 10” to spare can fit this contemporary fountain. No plumbing required, as most small fountains don’t, the water simply recycles through with an interior pump.

5) Zen Too Water Fountain

If you’ve got a quirky side, then the Zen Too fountain is perfect for your backyard. It’s long, but narrow, so it’s still idea for small spaces. It measures 33” long but only 19” long, so it would be perfect for a ledge, a stoop, or nestled away in a tiny garden.
