Furnish with stone fountains

Walking in the garden is always pleasant and yet an element that can make the furnishings of our green spaces original are the fountains. Depending on the size of our green space, we can think of furnishing it with one or more types of stone, marble or concrete fountains, with more or less scenographic effects, according to our tastes and our possibilities.

However, these little porous stones also lend themselves well to being sculpted in artistic forms. If, on the other hand, our intent is to furnish the garden with a naturalistic rendering, the best effects can be obtained with raw natural stones and rocks, which allow you to play more with bare shapes,
