Fountains – Build Your Own Garden Water Features
Almost finished making the perfect garden and patio but missing something special?
Antique Stone can provide blocks to create a water feature in Sydney or on your country property.
Garden water features in Sydney have always been a popular mark of taste and culture. Whether you employ something simple like a small fountain falling from lovely natural tiles or desire a sculpted figure for a striking sense of character, the feature will make a memorable impact.
The garden paving and garden wall capping used is also versatile for other applications around your home. On top of your fountains, you can also use them as a part of retaining walls for soil, plants and even around water to make ponds that are simply exquisite. Creating lulling points of interest for you or friends or family to enjoy while you sip your morning or evening tea in the sun.
While we don’t provide prebuilt water features, with the proper labour you can achieve a modern stylish water fountain or several in your garden, or as an accessory to your pool. Additionally, you can use the same tiles for your fountain for the rest of your garden paving, for a seamlessly smooth look that exudes taste and refinement.
Five reasons people install fountains
Psychological and aesthetical benefits in owning a water feature
Beauty – There is no denying the natural beauty that garden fountains have. They make a statement and so can be used as the centrepiece of your garden or to make a smaller space feel more special.
Relaxation – Watching and listening to flowing water as it falls through your water feature has been known to be a great aid to mediation and relaxation.
Happiness – The sound and presence of running water, even just from a water feature, has been discussed in science for its ability to make people more happy and focussed.
Good luck – Water is a symbol of life and prosperity in many cultural beliefs. It is not hard to see why, as water is a natural resource that we rely on to live and do so in good health. As such it is a valuable asset if you want to achieve good Feng Shui when installed East, North-East or North of your house.
How we do this
Helping you create bespoke garden water features in Sydney
At Antique Stone we provide a variety of garden paving and wall capping colours, shapes and sizes to help you achieve a multitude of different fountain styles.
Contemporary and Sleek
Typically, we would use our 600 x 400 x 25mm tiles to clad a wall and then we provide capping to suit the top. This would be able to give you a modern water feature or fountain with garden paving.
Running Wall of Water
Another option is to use either our retaining blocks and capping, which will create a square or rectangle water feature. This feature provides a small waterfall appearance that looks neat and tastefully curated.
European & Classic
Our third option is our specially created curve blocks which can be used to create a semi-circle or a circular water feature in Garden paving. This water feature is inspired by the famous bulb fountain in the French Riviera town Saint-Paul De Vence.

What size is your wall capping?
How do you maintain an outdoor water feature?
You can remove algae from the garden wall capping with a bristle brush. You can use cleaning agents with the brush to get out stains
You should also try to skim the leaves of your fountains at least once weekly to prevent a buildup of debris or algae. You may need to pay more attention to this if you are harboring fish here, so that it doesn’t compromise the oxygen in the pond.
Where should I put my water feature in my garden?
Try placing your fountain in a shaded or partially shaded area to reduce the number of algae that develops for more hygienic waters.
Otherwise, you may also want to consider where to put your garden water feature based on some other factors, such as: where it can be best used to mask street noise, where it can be seen indoors and out, and where it would be safe from kids or pets falling in.
