Size. Larger fountains take more time and labor to install. They’re more difficult to work with due to their size. They also cost more because more materials go into making them.

Types of fountains. Some fountains are larger than others, take more materials to make, and are made from different materials. These can change how much an outdoor water fountain costs. These can also change how hard and long installation takes, which changes the cost more.

The total number of fountains. You can get one fountain or a group of them! While it does increase the cost it can also make it more enjoyable for you and your guests.

Where you want to put them. It’s easier to put a fountain in the ground than it is to put them in an existing water feature or hardscape. We may need a different process and equipment to install your fountains.

Additions. Lights in and around your fountains, landscaping, and a rainwater harvesting feature are a few additions for fountains. They can increase the cost and how much you enjoy your fountain.
