A solar bird bath fountain is a wonderful addition to any backyard. It does not just look great and offers a soft, gentle gurgling ambiance but it also attracts wildlife and offer animals a source of fresh water. As it is solar powered, it is fairly cost-effective, plus it requires fewer processes for its installation and maintenance as it doesn’t come with loud pumps or cords.
To get the right solar fountain, there are key aspects that you need to keep in mind including the design. What you want is to get the bird bath that feels natural. So, it should fit right into your existing outdoor space. A bright colored solar bird bath fountain is great for that light, airy feel. A darker stone, on the other hand, will offer some sense of style and traditional elegance.
Another choice that you would have to make is whether you want a foundation that’s single- or double-tiered. The double-tiered fountain can offer an amazing overall silhouette; however, it can become too much for its surrounding space. Analyze how it can impact your space. If it will boost the beauty and ambiance of your garden, then go for a double-tiered solar bird bath fountain.
The next thing that you need to consider is the solar bird bath’s material. Reinforced concrete, ceramic, and stone are all excellent choices. Ceramic and stone are more expensive in general, but they come with a high-end look and feel. As for reinforced concrete, it is often lighter and more durable from its engineered design. There are also plastic bird baths, but they are not recommended as they can get damaged by constant sun exposure.
They become brittle when they’re exposed to the harmful rays of the sun daily. A good guideline to remember when deciding on the material: the heavier the material is, the more likely it is to be of superior quality. The last thing you need to check is the power and size of the bath’s solar panel. The larger the panel is, the more power in Watts it can provide.
