Understanding Cast Stone
You may have already browsed our extensive selection and noticed that many are made of this material, but you are not quite sure what it is. Perhaps you are wondering how long it will hold up, or if it looks as attractive in real life as it does on our website.
Cast stone is virtually the perfect material for artists, manufacturers, and buyers. It is easy to work with, allowing the designer a great level of creative freedom. It is also one of the most durable materials you will find. This is a material that has been used in construction for several centuries, so you do not have to worry about hail, bird droppings, pollution, or other elements destroying it. Of course, it still needs to be properly protected in the winter.
As for the actual appearance, these outdoor fountains look as exquisite when you pull them out of their box as they do here on our site. Mineral coloring pigments are typically used to create a variety of colors, so you also do not have to worry about paint chipping away.
Choosing the Right One
Since cast stone water features are available in so many different styles you have the opportunity to really let your personality shine through with your purchase. Alternately, you can base your decision purely on the appearance of your house, or the theme of your patio furnishings.
If you are trying to create a peaceful Zen area for meditation, or you simply need a small piece, our Campania Sphere Mini Series Fountain would be perfect. For a classic and regal look, you will want to look at our tiered options. Some of these elegant pieces even have a large pool or basin at the bottom, creating the ultimate level of curb appeal.
Those who have always been attracted to the use of lions in art will appreciate that many of our cast stone pieces showcase the king of the jungle. We even have a wide variety of cast stone water walls because nothing makes a house appear more expensive and interesting than the illusion of water flowing from an exterior wall. If you love the idea of a water wall but are not comfortable mounting anything to your home, then the freestanding water walls we have here at Soothing Walls should be very appealing to you. Then, of course, we have those unique pieces that do not fall into a general category because there is no way to describe them. Our Precipice Garden Fountain is a great example and sure to be the topic of conversation.
