Setting up the Japanese garden granite basins

Bringing out a Japanese accent in your gardens design is no longer a difficult task as a fountain is enough to add the fresh touch to your décor. A simple fountain would probably be the cleansing fountain meant for purifying visitors before entering a temple or for traditional tea parties and below are the different styles for setting up a garden granite basin.

  • Japanese garden overflowing basin

This is a traditional set up for a water basin where it is set to allow water to run only over the front of such a basin and into a hidden reservoir. You are not supposed to drill a hole since water will simply overflow from the basin’s top into the reservoir so you need to have a granite basin without a hole, bricks, gravel, bamboo fountain with a pump and a liner that is forty milliliters in size.

  • Self contained basin

This is a larger garden basin which has no external water reservoir. What happens is that water will be re-circulated by the pump directly from such a basin to the spout of the fountain and this setup requires a drilled basin but the basin will need to be topped off to avoid evaporation. Sometimes a basin with a reservoir is possible to be setup in a self contained style where water will not overflow outside the fountain’s basin but it will have a reservoir. This set up is great as it holds larger amounts of water than the previous set up and it does not need to be topped off that often.
