WHY DECORATE WITH SLATE FOUNTAINS?
Slate fountains are made of slate stone. This is a weather proof and rustic stone that is used to make many garden and home decorative objects. These fountains are made of real stone, and so are much heavier than the cheaper alternatives that only paint the appearance of genuine stone. They can come in contemporary as well as traditional designs for exterior or interior decoration.
Slate waterfalls are available in as many colors as slate can come in, from blue, brown, green, gray and more. Physically speaking, slate is a very durable stone. It ages slowly and can withstand extreme variations in climate. Slate stone is also a soft stone which makes it relatively easy to carve and custom design. Slate fountains can be made into ornaments by skilled sculptors. They can be indoor or outdoor waterfalls or even water fountains.
How Much For That Slate Fountain In The Window?
Slate fountains can be pricey, as the stone is valuable and the craftsmanship impressive. One item called the Adagio Artesian Springs Floor Fountain retails for $3,279.00. Such items are usually hand cut and are one of a kind works of art-especially since the individual pieces of slate stone vary widely in color and texture. These types of slate fountains usually come with a pump, lights and have medium water sound volume. While expensive slate fountains are best kept indoors, they can also survive outside if covered by an awning, which protects against rain and sun.
How much do slate fountains weigh? There are no lightweight slate fountains-not if it's the real thing.
The Adagio Artesian Springs Floor Fountain weighs in at 375 pounds and measures 26 inches wide and 70 inches high. Genuine slate fountains are very heavy, therefore you may be required to employ a lift gate service to transport the object from the truck bed to the ground, and into your home or garden. Otherwise you would need a forklift or a loading dock. A trucking delivery company cannot move the item for you, so if you were unable to transport it, another delivery would have to be scheduled.
But these fountains are worth the trouble-they are beautiful and a piece of natural art.
