Be Bold and Creative with These Beautiful Outdoor Sphere Water Features
Self-contained fountains are simple, effective ways to liven up a quiet, somber backyard, patio, or garden and give them new vitality in the form of sound and presence. You might be surprised how effective putting a few simple shapes together in the right way can be. Water fountains are made to be seen, heard, and even touched, so why not entertain the idea of adding one to your home? The sound of water is one of the most highly sought-after naturally relaxing soundtracks people want to integrate into their lives, and you can do that so easily and be bold about it!
Spheres are one of those shapes that we rarely see integrated into outdoor art, but they work extremely well as fountains with spheres. The smooth surface works perfectly for cascading fountains. The water sparkles and glimmers over the generous surface area, catching the sunlight and sending it dancing around your relaxing space. The sound is subtle, so rather than the obvious splashing you might find in a spouting, plume-like fountain, you’re getting a soothing burble and flow. Touch comes back into style when you have the chance to reach out your hand and let the water simply spill over your skin with its gentle course. The shape itself is simple but striking, solid without being overbearing. Let’s take a look at a few of the most beautiful spherical outdoor water fountains and see if we can tickle your creative fancy.
Ball and Bowl Outdoor Water Fountain
Normally I like to save my favorite for last, but we’re switching things up today. The Ball And Bowl Outdoor Water Fountain consists of two of the most simple, basic shapes in existence and manages to look positively stunning while doing it. This is a larger, impressive piece (with dimensions of 59"H x 72"W x 72"D) that can be the most powerful focal point in your outdoor space, and it’s bold enough to do it without resorting to extra frills and intricate detail. This is a custom piece and the finish is expertly applied to your specifications, so if you have a pre-existing theme or have one in mind that you definitely want to dedicate to, you’re looking at a piece that will weather and age gracefully. The glass fiber reinforced concrete will outlast more traditional, cast stone construction, so your investment will grow into a timeless feature. Be warned, it’s also weighs a pretty hefty 1310 lbs., so you might want to talk to a contractor to make sure you place it on a surface that will be able to display it for the long run.
Vortex with Ball Outdoor Water Fountain
All right, the Ball and Bowl is a little bit too much for the majority of water fountain seekers out there. The longevity of glass fiber reinforced concrete is impressive and, while every fountain on this list utilizes it in some incarnation, the Vortex with Ball Outdoor Water Fountain showcases just how versatile the material can be with sweeping lines and attractive geometric angles. Whether you’re looking to juxtapose geometry into the organic flourish of a garden or embellish your patio and/or outdoor space with the elegance of mathematical beauty, the Vortex with Ball water fountain is a self-contained, taller feature that can work as a central focal point or a more subtle accent. Its dimensions sit at a lithe 65"H x 42"W x 42"D and weighs about 557 lbs., making it heavier and very solid without tipping the scales that the Ball and Bowl does. Unlike the Ball and Bowl, it can also be ordered with the auto refill system that can be hooked up to a simple garden hose so you can be sure it’ll never, ever run dry.
Double Obtuse with Ball Garden Water Fountain
Simplicity doesn’t mean boring, and the Double Obtuse With Ball Garden Water Fountain is an excellent example of how geometric shapes and stonelike texture can come together in a fruitful marriage. While the Vortex with Ball fountain starts to let a little bit of that fluidity in stone sneak into the design, the Double Obtuse with Ball takes it back to what makes minimalism so attractive to so many people. Its solid, beautiful simplicity makes it an excellent fountain feature, featuring enough angles and planes to showcase what water and stone can pull off without frills. You’re still getting the longevity of glass fiber reinforced concrete and the convenience of a recirculating pump. One might call the Double Obtuse demure in comparison with the earlier two fountains, but that by no means diminishes its visual impact at 32"W x 32"D x 58"H and 310 lbs. Like the Vortex with Ball, this outdoor water feature can also be outfitted with the auto refill system for even more convenience.
Small Oblique with Ball Garden Water Fountain
Last but not least, the Small Oblique With Ball Garden Water Fountain is an accent piece with a great deal of attitude. This outdoor water feature is perfectly balanced and easy on the eyes, making it a perfect addition to a seating area where it can fill the space with the gentle, soothing sound of running water. You’re getting all the most essential shapes: the sphere tops an upside down pyramid, giving the water a free path to cascade and course down into a squared off basin. Of course, you don’t have to tell anyone what to see in it. Just place it in your outdoor entertainment space and watch how your visitors relax. Self-contained, made of the same long-lasting glass fiber reinforced concrete, and compatible with the auto refill system? I can’t see a reason to say no, especially when you consider that the inverted pyramid shape allows the water to both cascade and splash gently. At a pretty 42"H x 32"W x 32"D and 382 lbs., the Small Oblique with Ball Garden Water Fountain will always have a timeless place in your outdoor arrangements.
Elegant Urn Outdoor Water Features for Your Home
Historically, people like the Greeks have utilized urns as a means of transporting life-giving water to their homes. These urns, called hydrai, or hydria (singular), have been pivotally important since antiquity. The marriage of the urn to the importance of water is visually very powerful, as it imparts a sense of wealth and prosperity. Featured in a home, not only does the symbolism carry to the owner’s abode, but the more practical elements also hold true. The sound of coursing water is universally relaxing, offering a quiet, natural white noise to its environment. If you’re seeking a prominent central feature for your outdoor spaces, be it a garden, patio, or otherwise, an urn fountain can impart that new level of classic elegance that you’ve been missing out on.
Historically, fountains have been used in a myriad of ways, though when the Roman aqueducts began breaking down in the Middle Ages, many purely functional fountains went unused. Since antiquity, fountainworks have evolved into a wide variety of uses. Some remained as statuary, while others grew into landmark fountains, while the most basic and functional still remain today in the simple drinking water fountain and the monasterial lavabo. Fortunately, thanks to technology, we can still enjoy the beauty and artisan craftsmanship that goes into the creation of these functional art pieces without needing to necessarily draw water from them for survival.
When searching for urn water features for the garden, there’s a balance to be struck between stand-out beauty and subtle elegance. For a simple, elegant addition that combines classic implications with contemporary styling, the Tall Malmo Glazed Garden Fountain is a customizable piece that can demand attention as a focal point or integrate with foliage and other stonework as part of a whole aesthetic design. Hand-made of Glazed Terra Cotta, this outdoor vase water fountain will outlast traditional stone fountain works.

Fountains make for beautiful accents and add a lovely ambiance to whatever space they are placed in, but if you’re looking for a striking centerpiece that will grab and hold attention, the Elegant Urn Zen Three Bowl Fountain is an exquisite demand. The urns in multiple sizes are supported and accentuated by simple platforms, giving the central focus to the water-bearing vases. This is a relatively light fountain weighing in at only 390 pounds. It is made from cast stone and available in twenty-four (24!) different colors, this fountain will appear as if it has been there since the beginning, integrating with your existing environment with ease.

The Shimmering Stones design is a statement piece the features a round, ground level basin. The urn-like column is adorned with smooth stones that are sure to catch your eye. Water bubbles from the top of the column and rains down the sides into a rippling pool at the basin. It wets the stones as it pours down which causes the stones to glisten in the light. It is simple and clean, which creates an excellent centerpiece and focal point for your outdoor design. You can choose from 24 different finishes to match your pre-existing arrangements or go bold and feature a burst of unique color that is sure to grab visitors' attention. With a 36” base and reaching 36" high, the Shimmering Stones Fountain is at a positively peppy 526 pounds and, of course, includes the proper recirculating water pump.
Last, but definitely not least, the Navonna Outdoor Water Fountain combines what I believe to be the most attractive features of all the fountains on this list into one absolutely stunning package. The streams of water springing free of the chalice design cast elegantly into the quatrefoil basin, guaranteeing a filling sound for your space, while the chalice basin itself features a bubbling fountain so no little detail goes to waste. Impressive but not overpowering, the base is 56.5” square, and the chalice piece stands 39” high, and is crafted expertly from cast stone, so you know it will last years. This piece also features an optional auto-fill system that you need only connect to a garden hose, and the regulator will take care of the rest.With fiber reinforced cast stone concrete construction, this fountain is proudly made in the United States of America and comes in twelve different color options that are applied carefully and made to weather and age naturally and gracefully.

No sweat, because this particular style comes in many different colours (27!) one of which will surely suit your home. A beautiful centerpiece for a beautiful garden, this has it all.
This two tier fountain is hardly as grand as the one previous, but it still packs a punch in the home as one of the quality small garden water fountains. With a beautiful pool underneath, the small size of the fountain is coupled with a well of water much bigger than the fountain itself. The lion’s heads around the side of the fountain look the part, especially if your love of animals is a theme around your home.
Available in a massive array of colour styles, this part wall, part upright fountain has one water piece falling from the side of the ornament falling into a tray which filters it through separate ways.
The best part of this water fountain is, by far and away, the floral design that suits perfectly the flowers behind it, complimenting and playing off each other perfectly. Made from fiber-reinforced stone this small outdoor water fountain, this fountain easily plugs into any standard electricity system, meaning it’s very adaptable and easy to install.
This two-tiered fountain is slightly smaller than some of the others, but that’s partly what makes this piece its own. Almost versatile enough to fit in any garden or plot of land, you can imagine this piece on a front or back lawn. Versatile is the keyword here, as you don’t even need plumbing, the water recirculates automatically from when you fill it up.
The fountain here is square-based and has plenty of colour options to choose from. Another smaller piece that can be moved around super easily, it’s designed in the USA and made from fiber reinforced stone. Like the piece above, it requires zero plumbing as it recirculates the water - but just make sure the water is changed every so often so it doesn’t become stale and horrible! The style of this piece is made to look as though it has aged, but don’t worry, that’s merely a look. This brand new piece of furniture would look good in any garden, regardless of style.
A personal favourite fountain here, this Tuscan-style fountain is very suave, with a decorative bottle of wine as the main fountain piece, laying on top of a bunch of decorative stone grapes.

More like a side ornament than a fully-fledged fountain, this could sit on the side in your garden or even in your home - if you’re feeling experimental. Designed to last a lifetime and weather naturally to add to the look, this durable fountain would find a place in many classy homes.
What’s Best for You?
I think the size of your garden will certainly determine which piece of furniture you get and what you put where. You couldn’t have a larger piece in a small garden because it would look intimidating and out of place. At the same time, a smaller fountain in a huge garden would end up being drowned out - no pun intended - but the rest of the scenery. The final piece - the Tuscan Vineyard piece - would look great in a European-style garden. Small, plenty of vines and other stonework. That would work perfectly.
Whatever the Weather
All of these fountains, regardless of size, are build to last in all conditions. There’s no need to worry about moving them, bringing them indoors or weather wear-and-tear with these pieces. By way of caution, however, I would say it’s best to keep them clean and tidy, because of health and safety. Stagnant water is unsafe as it grows bad bacteria which can cause illness. Making sure you keep your fountain clean and tidy and free of mold will leave you will a beautiful and long-lasting piece of furniture.
