Spanish Style Courtyard Fountain


Quite the most charming detail is found in this Spanish Style Courtyard. The fountain, an Italian basin built up around antique pieces brought from Italy intertwined Cupids supporting a top basin which is surmounted by another winged Cupid in bronze.

Brick walks surround the fountain and grass plots and borders of flowers. Water grass growing in the basin
gives the fountain a note of unusual interest.

Spanish patios are my favorite of all exterior decorating designs. Nothing is better than a classical, well patterned patio with a beautiful, multi-tier water fountain in the middle. For the basic I would prefer some fresh water fish rather than plants.

I am trying to find a wall fountain in the mexican colonial style. It would need to be free-standing with a basin (as there is no wall). I was thinking about doing the patina myself. Something about 48″ wide (or less) and 50-60-ish” tall). Simple is good. I cannot find anything that is not too ornate or just plain tacky. I am creating an enclosed courtyard in my garden (the lusher the better) and I haven’t found anything that suits.
Thanks for your consideration.
