5 Unique Ways to Repurpose Your Outdoor Fountain

Posted by Jordan Rasmussen on

Our large selection of outdoor water fountains are used as decorative pieces that add elegance and a sense of tranquility to any outdoor space. They recreate the kind of waterfalls you'd only find out in the wilderness with their peaceful trickle and flowing stream sounds that effortlessly bring the perfect accent to your landscape. But we've discovered our outdoor water fountains can be used in other ways both indoors and outdoors to add even more beauty to your home or yard! Here are 5 unique repurposed outdoor water fountains that truly inspired us!

1. Create a Festive Masterpiece 

Recently one of our creative customers purchased our grand courtyard fountain and transformed it into a festive work of art that resembles a beautiful Christmas tree!
