Keep It Cool w/ Patio Fountains and Misters


As summer heats up, Fort Collins Nursery has a great selection of patio fountains and misters to help cool you down.

Patio Fountains

The calming sound of running water creates a peaceful environment, reduces stress, and can block out unwanted background noises.  The running water can also cool down your garden, making your outdoor living experience more enjoyable.  As water evaporates into the air, the humidity levels increase and helps soothe your skin.

We have a large variety of Al’s Garden Art brand fountains in stock that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are relaxing.  Since 1949, the Al’s Garden Art brand is renowned for its designs of authentic, handcrafted and finished water features and garden art.

Have an old fountain in need of new life?  Our Pond Boss fountain pump replacements can get that water flowing again.  Each pump is designed with an optimum pumping height in mind and built for efficient and long lasting use.

Cobra Mist Stands

Our Cobra portable mist cooling stands from Orbit are a cool product and a must have for summer.  This freestanding mister attaches to any standard garden hose and provides localized mist cooling.  Cobra mist stands are perfect for sunbathing, working in the yard, watering plants, or for cooling you down while you enjoy a late afternoon cocktail on the patio.

  1. I have recently moved to a rather dry area, and I have to say I’ve been missing the frequent rainfall I used to experience. Don’t get me wrong, this is probably the only complaint I have about my relocation. However, why not make it perfect? This is why I think that water fountains like this would be great for me. I agree that this type of thing brings a lot to the atmosphere in a yard and I will be looking into them soon!

    I’ve always wanted to put a garden water fountain in my backyard. It gets so hot in the summer, so I think it would be a good way to cool down and set the mood. I will look for a fountain that has a long lasting pump and a beautiful design.

    Thanks for the post. These are some great benefits to owning a backyard fountain. I really enjoy the sound of a running brook or river. I would love to have that in my backyard. The idea of reducing stress sounds great to me as well.

  4. I really appreciate the insight here in this post and wanted to say thank you for sharing it.

  5. I can’t wait to be sitting outside next to our fountain reading a book – so relaxing! The little indoor one just isn’t cutting it anymore in the winter time!

    The office in my house has a sliding door that faces our back yard so I often keep the door open so that I can hear the birds and feel the breeze. I like the idea of putting in a fountain so that not only will I be able to look at the beautiful view, but I will also be able to hear the calming sound of the water flowing so that I can not be as stressed while I am working. That way I will be able to get more work done without having to take as many work breaks and I will be able to be with my family sooner.
