Solar Powered Garden Fountains - Beautiful Solar Water Fountains

Updated on January 12, 2012

During spring time most people usually start to decorate their garden. Solar powered garden fountain is a great addition to any garden. After the snow season is over, it is very refreshing to just go out to the garden and start planting flower garden for the year, decorating or redecorating the garden. If you already own a solar garden fountain that was put away during the winter season, then it's time to bring it back outside this spring. In other places such as tropical countries, solar fountain is a great garden decor all year round.

Solar powered garden fountains are not only great decoration for your garden but also very auspicious. It is believed to bring us prosperity, good fortune or abundance and notable improvements in our life. Using solar fountain will save you money because it doesn't need electricity to run. There are lots of beautifully designed solar garden fountains that will fit to any garden. The beautiful sound of trickling water is very relaxing, calming and has a soothing effect that you will want to just hang out in your garden while listening to the sound of flowing water.

According to Feng Shui, the position of your solar water fountains in your garden is very important. Most of the garden is in the backyard so consider these 2 positions:

  • North corner of your garden -- energize this corner for career success.
  • Southeast corner -- energize this corner for money and wealth.

Another feng shui rule is that, it is best to place water feature in front of the house rather than in the back. If you place a water feature outside, make sure you place it on the left side of the main door as you stand looking out.

There are lots of solar powered garden fountain designs to choose from. Make sure you choose the style that will bring more good and positive energy. Water flowing upward is good. Water flowing inward instead of outward is good. Make sure the flow of water from your fountain is toward the house or toward the center of your house and garden and not away from the house. These are just simple arrangement that will give the surrounding more balanced energy and harmonious living. Consulting a feng shui expert or researching more on feng shui is highly recommended. For me feng shui is complicated and there is a lot to learn about the subject.

Which do you prefer, electric powered or solar powered fountain?

      Hi Pegcole17 Yes you know the cascade ceramic fountain is really cute but actually in fengshui if you want more positive result it is recommended to use a metal water fountain, something to do with elements relations

      Hi Vocalcoach thanks for your good comments. solar panel is good for the roof especially in hot countries. When it comes to feng shui, metal fountain is best.
