The Ancient History of Stone Garden Fountain

The first recorded use of garden fountains and wall fountains in the historical record comes from the ancient middle east. Diagrams on the walls of ancient Egyptian tombs shows the use of garden fountains within the enclosed courtyards of dramatic homes. Typically, they would take the form of a rectangular fish pond, with an impressive row of decorative and fruit-bearing trees lining the edges. The Mesopotanians used fountains extensively in their formal gardens, bringing a lush landscape to the harsh highlands, highligted with garden fountains. Shade trees irrigated by the fountains provided respite from the hot summer sun.

The Persian influence was felt by the enclosure of the gardens and pools, and the architecture of these gardens was meant to simulate the heavens. Many of these gardens inspired the famous Persian carpet designs that have persisted to this day. Roman society was intricately tied to the bathing ritual, and particularly enjoyed water features in the gardens intertwined with the public baths. In the hot deserts of the middle east, the desert oasis provided the inspiration for the ancient Persian-inspired paradise gardens.
