There are few better ways to create a sense of calm, tranquility and beauty in a garden or yard than with a solar powered fountain. The bubbling of the water, and visual effect of a beautiful solar fountain amongst the rocks, shrubs and flowers can add a sense of calming ambience in any space. In addition to being asthetically pleasing, these fountains can also be very cost efficient and practical. Firstly, because they are solar powered, they require very little maintenance and no electrical wiring. The built-in solar panels are embedded in the solar water fountains, and take in rays from the sun which powers the fountain spray. Secondly, the fountain is powered by the sun, so there are no electric costs associated with running these fixtures. The savings can really add up over time.
In addition to solar outdoor fountains, there are also differing variations of these products in the form of solar birdbath fountains, which aim to draw in birds of all types to come drink. These types of solar fountains also get powered by the attached water-proof solar panel which faces the sun. The cost savings aspects of these fountains are similar.
