The scent of this woodland garden changes with the seasons, from the spring bulbs that burst forth beginning in April until the last blossom of the ‘Honorine Jobert’ anemones in November. A walkway leads through the gorgeous greenery, with seats and fountains along the way so that the owners can fully enjoy the scenery.
From the upper terrace, a quaint limestone path and steps slips beneath the canopy of large existing trees to an urban shade garden featuring magnificent globe boxwood clusters, Oakleaf hydrangeas, perennials, and groundcover. The path leads past a bubbler fountain centered on the window of the workout room.
Privacy inspires the design in this backyard, which is located along a busy road. Bubbling fountains add splashing sounds, accompanied by the gurgling of a stream over stone stairs. The fountain and stream are positioned so the water sounds are heard in each part of the backyard landscaping.
From the welcoming courtyard in front of luxurious Villa Serena, located in Jacksonville, Florida, the Tuscan-inspired architecture is evident. The bubbling of fountains and the serene setting are an instant soothing balm.
Jordan Grantham of The Happy Homebodies and her husband transformed two ordinary flower pots into a bubbling fountain for their patio. Make your own flower pot fountain with any two pots — one larger than the other — a water pump and landscaping rocks. Note that this fountain must be placed near an outdoor electrical outlet in order to run.
A large, smooth stone serves as the base for this serene fountain in a contemporary courtyard. The water bubbles inconspicuously from the center of the stone and trickles down to the square pool below.
