From Modern to Classic – The Top Outdoor Wall Water Fountains

When shaped into stone, beauty can be timeless, rather than fleeting as the flower. Instead of falling victim to the transient whims of fashion, the right outdoor wall fountain can bring a sophisticated charm to your home, with or without a degree of modernity. No matter how limited your available space might be, even if all you have is wall space, just one choice feature can pull a simple backyard together into a full-fledged oasis of relaxation and entertainment for you and your guests. From the classical to the height of modern influences, one of these fountains will no doubt be the one thing that knits your space together or adds a new dimension to your existing landscaping and outdoor decor.

 

Classic Lion Outdoor Wall Fountain

 

Long have lions been protecting places of great importance, from the tapestries of ancient kings to our very own majestic Patience and Fortitude, who have been guarding the streets of Manhattan for over a hundred years. They are the Kings of the Beasts, powerful images of strength, courage, and fearless determination throughout the world. Considering all this, where better would a lionshead be found than outside your home in a subtle position of silent guardianship? Ornately carved and expertly crafted, the Classic Lion Outdoor Wall Fountain makes no secret of its historical inspiration. The lion’s mouth fountain spout builds a gentle tranquility, and you can relax to the natural tempo of flowing water as it splashes into the basin. Available in forty-seven different finishes (yes, that’s 47), you are guaranteed to find exactly the color and texture that you need to fit your pre-existing features and design, or to start that theme you’ve always wanted. While imposing at 70"H x 32"W x 19"D and a hefty 501 lbs., the Classic Lion Outdoor Wall Fountain is intricate enough to build an air of classy sophistication and solid enough to last the years and weather gracefully while embellishing your home.

 

Provincial Cast Stone Wall Outdoor Fountain

 

“Stately” and “elegant” are the two words heard often when the Provincial Cast Stone Wall Outdoor Fountain joins the scene. The marriage of organic, floral sculpture and smooth stone evokes a sense of grandeur that has long roots into history. While the Classic Lion design was deeply intricate and stands out as a pedestal, the Provincial Cast Stone flows out of the wall, emerging with an elegant grace. Thanks to its included recirculating pump, the water flows from the spigot into the chalice-style pedestal, splashing merrily before flowing over the edge into the basin below. This two-level design provides a variety of relaxing water sounds, a more enjoyable environmental white noise that helps filter out the chaos and hectic energy of the outside world. While a large piece, the Provincial is surprisingly versatile, functioning well as a powerful centerpiece for more intimate spaces, flanking entryway guardians for the grandest of villas, and everywhere in between. At 783 lbs. And 53.5"H x 48"W x 30"D for dimensions, you know you’re looking at a piece that is built to last, and in a variety of finishes, you can be guaranteed that it’ll continue to match and look great for years to come.

 

Estancia Water Fountain

 

Drawing in on the intricacies of classical design in favor of a smoother, simpler approach, the Estancia Water Fountain is practically made to be surrounded by beautiful flora in the richest of gardens. While its overall impression might seem boring or simple, in reality, the Estancia is a team player the way few other fountains are. Whether you’re wreathing it deep in vivacious plant life or accenting it with a single, smartly potted fern, this wall fountain feeds off its surroundings and boasts a versatile design that is both impressive and solid. The smooth curves mirror the elegant flow of water over a triple level descent of pedestals and basin, giving out a wonderful, area-filling sound. It’s up to you and the wide variety of finishes to decide how best you’re going to add this wall fountain to your outdoor ambiance. It just might be the one thing that finishes out your look. The Estancia is no slouch at a solid 898 lbs. and fills out a broad 46" L x 26.25" W x 58.25" H, requiring only water and a standard 3-prong 110 V electrical outlet for full functionality. As always, the finish you choose will weather and age with a natural, timeless grace, growing only more beautiful as the years and seasons pass.

 

Andalusia Outdoor Wall Water Fountain

 

Take a moment and do an image search for Andalusia. Don’t worry, we’ll be here when you get done browsing the breathtaking hillsides, sweeping vistas, and sunset-soaked villages of bright white and rich terracotta. When you’re back, let’s talk about what we just shared. This region of southern Spain is rich and beautiful in the most tangible sense imaginable, and the Andalusia Outdoor Wall Water Fountain embodies that simple but iconic strength and elegance in a way that dismisses filigree and tiny chisels. The clean angles and smooth curves play nicely with modern aesthetic by eschewing the many details found on other classic inspirations, without losing the bold design that makes it so iconic. Because of its inspirational origin, this is a solid, beautiful wall fountain that will do better when surrounded by succulents, crushed gravel, texture, but most importantly: the play between light and shadow. Not a small feature by any means, the Andalusia sits at about 56.25" L x 30" W x 55.5" H and weighs a feathery 1050 lbs.

 

X3 Outdoor Wall Water Fountain

 

For the modern art lover in all of us, even those that only have a little sliver here and there, the X3 Outdoor Wall Water Fountain has got an excellent balance of bold, solid art with a touch of classical stone texture and finish that will find a place in your heart, even if the others on this list could not. The X3 has a bold structure and striking lines that set it aside and apart, but it is not without its own soft touches. The three spigots spill into a low basin, while the back plate rises up to a comfortable shelf, housing included bird statues, giving the squared-off design a natural touch. Aesthetically, this fountain is already set apart from the others. Functionally, the system is fully compatible with an auto refill system which allows you to hook the fountain up to a simple garden hose and it will automatically maintain a proper water level, so you don’t have to worry about the fountain running dry. Don’t worry, we didn’t jump up another category, the X3 Outdoor Wall Water Fountain is firmly in the lightweight division for fountains at a practically svelte 504 lbs. and 36" L x 16.5" W x 32" H dimensions.

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.

 

Small Vase Garden Water Fountain

 

When searching for urn water features for the garden, there’s a balance to be struck between stand-out beauty and subtle elegance.

Expertly crafted from glass fiber reinforced concrete, this outdoor vase water fountain will outlast traditional stone fountainworks. Available in multiple finishes and stains, the Small Vase Garden Water Fountain can be matched to local regional stone or pre-existing landscaping, or given an aged or weathered look.

This fountain sits at a modest 45"H x 32"W x 32"D and weighs a hefty 279 pounds, ensuring that its excellent balance and superior quality will last many long and happy years.

 

Elegant Urn Trio Outdoor Water Fountain

 

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 Trio Outdoor Water Fountain is an exquisite demand. The urns in multiple sizes are supported and accentuated by simple rectangular platforms, giving the central focus to the water-bearing vases. This is a very hefty feature at 61.5"H x 74"W and weighing in at a solid 2121 pounds. Made from cast stone and available in forty-seven (47!) different colors, this fountain will appear as if it has been there since the beginning, integrating with your existing environment with ease. The recirculating pump is included, so once installed and filled, you’re ready to start enjoying this beautiful piece.

 

Chambers Outdoor Fountain with Quatrefoil Basin

 

While the water-bearing urn carries with it a deep and rich history, the Chambers Outdoor Fountain stands tall and proud, carrying flowers, cascading foliage, or whatever plant life you wish, over the four streams of water that spill into an elegant quatrefoil basin. Made of cast stone in a multitude of finishes and beautifully detailed, it is guaranteed to stand out among the rest. This is more than just a simple flower pot water fountain.

Chalice Garden Water Fountain

 

The chalice design is a statement in shapeliness, topped with a wide-mouthed, beautifully curved cast stone chalice over a solid foundation of a cast stone square basin. The shape allows the sound of coursing, splashing water to resonate and travel further to fill the given space. Because the squared basin is so simple and clean, all attention is drawn to the chalice itself, creating an excellent centerpiece and focal point for your outdoor design. Choose from the forty-seven available colors to match your pre-existing arrangements, or go bold and feature a burst of unique color that will definitely grab visitors’ attentions. With a 48” squared base and reaching 40.50” high, the Chalice Garden Water Fountain is the lightest offering on this list at a positively peppy 685 pounds and, of course, includes the proper recirculating water pump.

 

Navonna Outdoor Water Fountain

 

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.

Linear Garden Water Fountain

 

Elegant in its simplicity and my favorite of all the features on this list, the Linear Garden Water Fountain is an impressive, stand out option when it comes to water features in the garden. The soft, gentle sound of water rushing over stone is a quieter addition to your garden or outdoor patio, but no less profound in its effects on the human mind. Built from glass fiber reinforced concrete, this fountain is lighter and more durable in the long run, ensuring that its variety of available finishes will age gracefully. The recirculating pump is, as always, included so all you need is a water source.

Art Garden Water Fountain

 

When I first saw this fountain, I was sure it was intended to be a freestanding structure, and it is, to a point. The flat back is designed to be placed back against a wall, requiring only a foot of space to take advantage of both the beautifully designed basin and the echo mechanics of its environment. The Art Garden Water Fountain features abstract statuary amidst cascading water, providing an exciting focal point to spark conversation.

The best way to describe this fountain made by Gist is “geometrically playful,” as every angle provides a view of the beautifully cascading water.

The included recirculating pump keeps the water flowing steadily, and when combined with the glass fiber reinforced concrete structure, you’ve got a dramatic feature that’s sure to catch and hold attention and spark delight.

Rarely is there a better noise than the sound of running water coming from a waterfall, and rarely is there a better feeling at home than switching on the pump and seeing the water gushing through while sipping a delicious glass of wine from your garden.

If that dreamy situation sounds like your perfect evening, then go no further in looking at our list of top outdoor choices, from small outdoor water fountains to larger, more extravagant beasts.

 

Fantastically Four Tier

If you can’t imagine yourself sitting at the top end of your garden, looking out onto the green grass with this beauty to look on to then, surely, you’re doing summer wrong! This fantastic four tier fountain is a grand decorative piece the just screams sophistication and class and will no doubt look amazing wherever it goes. Not keen on the colour? 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.

 

Two Tier Water Fountain

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.

 

Outdoor Wall Fountain

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. 

 

Sussex Wall Outdoor Water Fountain

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.

 

Acanthus Two-Tiered Small Water Fountain

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.

 

Portwenn Garden Water Fountain

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.

 

Tuscan Vineyard Garden Fountain

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. Although this needs to be plumbed into the mains, I think in terms of style and decoration, this may be one of the nicest small fountains on the market. 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.
