Create a private sanctuary in your yard with inspiration from these beautiful courtyards.
A wall-mounted lion’s head emits a small stream of water into an oval urn, which is tipped slightly away from the wall so water spills over the front edge. A catch basin below the urn collects the overflow. The recirculating fountain is visually pleasing and also creates sound and movement to draw birds and keep the water from becoming stagnant and attracting mosquitoes. Pieces of moss tucked in between the stones give the floor materials an aged look. Water from the fountain splashes on small, black, polished pebbles between the flagstones, making them glisten.
