If you are looking for a solar water fountain with a whimsical air but without being too extravagant, this solar powered wishing well water fountain is the perfect choice. It is made of poly-resin and natural wood, which makes it extremely lightweight yet durable, and able to withstand winter freezes easily. It will give your garden the perfect rustic touch, without the price tag of natural stone or annoying power wires that need to be covered. And unlike any other natural stone water fountain, you can move it around the yard to suit your needs, or even take it with you if you move houses. The only requirement in terms of location is that you need to place this solar wishing well water fountain in direct sunlight, so if your yard is shaded by trees or nearby buildings a wired model may be more suitable.
Size and Specifications
This is a medium size outdoor water fountain, standing at 12.4in diameter and 29.1 inches tall. Even including the packaging, it only weighs 21.1 pounds which makes it extremely lightweight and easy to handle and install yourself. However, it’s important to keep in mind that if you have a large yard and want a central water feature, this one may be a bit too small. However, it’s perfect if you are looking for an accent for a sunny corner or a small patio, and you can move it around if you need to rearrange your backyard.
The sturdy construction of this small wishing well water fountain requires little maintenance once assembled, and it’s totally self-sufficient. One of the things I love of solar water fountains is that there is no negative effect on my electricity bill, but you must make sure the fountain is somewhere with enough sunlight to function. You can leave it out in winter, but if you know it’s going to be dark and freezing you may prefer to just disassemble it and store it in the garage until spring is back. All you need to do is clean your outdoor water fountain regularly. This style of outdoor fountain attracts birds, so you may want to keep this in mind when adding water additives such as white scale or algae preventers, as some may be toxic for the wildlife.
Should You Buy This Wishing Well Outdoor Fountain?
If you are looking for a small solar water fountain for your backyard or garden, this one ticks all the right boxes: flexible, resilient, self-powered and with a beautiful and timeless design that fits from a small patio to a sunny corner on a larger backyard. However, the design is classically rustic, and even a bit whimsical, so if you are looking for edgy or modern looking fountains this one may not be the right one for your garden. Also consider the amount of sunlight your yard receives, as this fountain doesn’t have a battery, so it will stop working if it gets dark. If this is the case, you may be better off with a wired model that connects to your home power supply. Overall, this is a great solar wishing well fountain for the price, and will last you for years with minimal maintenance, besides being easy to transport if you ever need to move it.
