Fountains are always beautiful pieces if you are lucky enough to have an outdoor area in the front or back.
Fountains can work because they can be an actual source of water, but in most cases they are more decorative than anything else. They are usually made of a kind of stone in vintage style and are a symbol of life, since the protruding water creates the image of movement.
Some fountains are true centerpieces of a garden or back yard, others are built into walls or fences as if they were embedded there. Sometimes they are even combined with natural looking swimming pools so that they look like waterfalls.
Wells are definitely something you can enjoy in warmer times, but they still make sense in winter, as we want to show you.
