There is no doubt that water is an important element in the garden. Combine that with a little artistic structure, movement and an aesthetic background and you have some of the world’s most amazing garden water fountains.

And, while you may not find Italy’s Trevy Fountain, Geneva’s Jet d’Eau or Spain’s Vejer de la Frontera in this list you may just find one that could have come from your neighbour’s backyard. That is, of course, if they had a big enough backyard.
