Surround it with a decorative bed.
If you'd like to dress up your fountain, consider decorating the base. A rustic landscape can benefit from stone accents like gravel or river stones. Give your coastal landscape a special touch with crushed seashells surrounding your foundation base.
Bring in some extra color.
It's easy to freshen up a stone or concrete fountain with a bit of paint. First apply a concrete bonding primer and use outdoor paint to make sure your work holds up. You can also add tiles for a splash of color to give your fountain an elegant, new look.
Dress it up with greenery.
Living green plants and fountains are a natural pairing. Climbing vines and flowers work especially well with wall fountains. Free standing fountains go great with a ground cover planted around the base. You might also place aquatic plants inside the fountain itself for added color and a touch of romance.
Decorate the water.
Let's say that you're completely pleased with your fountain base, but still would like to add a little something special to your fountain. You can use floating ornaments to adorn the water itself. Consider Japanese fishing net floats or even floating tea lights to transform your fountain for a special occasion.
