The Classic Elegance of Tiered Fountains

A staple of grand European estates, tiered fountains are characterized by multiple levels, each a shallow basin from which water cascades downward. They provide both a visual spectacle and the soothing sound of continuously flowing water.

  • Design Flexibility: Tiered fountains range from simple two-tier structures to elaborate, multi-tiered designs adorned with intricate carvings or statues.
  • Space Requirements: These fountains are often large and are best suited for expansive gardens and outdoor spaces.

Wall Fountains: The Space-Saving Marvels

Wall fountains are attached directly to a wall, with water flowing from a spout into a basin below, often with ornate embellishments.
