Chilstone garden ornaments suit gardens large and small with a mix of classical and contemporary designs. Our pieces are entirely handmade with a finish identical to carved stone. This is in great contrast to the mass market ornaments seen in so many garden centres and nurseries.
Most fountains can operate without a water supply, a pump is placed in the base of the fountain and pumps the water out through the outlets. Fountains can be free standing or against a wall into a shallow pool for small gardens. All that is needed is an electrical supply. We can supply pool surrounds to fit and advice on pumps.
Here are a few fountains Simonstown Architectural has supplied in Ireland.
A beautiful large 3 or 4 tiered fountain, ideal for large gardens or entrances. Water is pumped up through the middle and cascades down over the urns making a wonderful noise. This fountain needs a pool that is at least 3 metres in diameter. Looks spectacular at night lit up.
Child with Dog Fountain
Adapted statue of a child with a whippet dog, can either have water shooting out of the top or bubbling up and over an urn placed on the top.
This very popular fountain is classical and elegant. Suitable for medium and large gardens it needs a pool that is at least 1.5 metres in diameter. The water comes out of the 4 lions masks and from the acorn into the top bowl where it flows down the bowl’s stylised leaves. We can also supply pool surrounds or paving for a surround.
Lions Mask Fountain
Ideal for a small garden or courtyard area, the water is pumped from the pool, up behind the wall and comes out through the lion’s mouth. We can also supply suitable fountain bases. The Lion mask is supplied with a T block behind to build into a wall.
