We all want calming spaces, and one spot that we want to be exactly like that is the garden. And why won't you feel relaxed? You have lush greens surrounding you, beautiful flowers, and more elements that can enhance the experience. A zen fountain can also add to the serene ambiance. Landscape architect Erick Yambao, who is also the founder of landscape architectural group Plöntur, shares some tips on what zen fountains can do to your outdoor space and some guidelines in placing one: 

1. A zen fountain makes for a great focal point in your garden. 

"You can use it as a visual element to draw attention, attract the viewer, and use it as an invitation to use the garden, lanai or any other area that you have outside your house."

2. It can help create a serene space. 

"Water can help add a sense of calm and peace in an area. And in Metro Manila, every bit of space where you can add greens, water, and landscaping is important. The impact, although intangible sometimes, is really huge."
