Fountain Water Features
Love the peaceful sound of bubbling water but not the upkeep that comes with a water garden?  Consider a fountain.  Fountains add beauty and serenity when placed near your deck or patio, or in a garden setting, with very little maintenance.  At Hosking's we have a diverse selection of fountains- from water jars to natural stacked rocks.  Stop in today and talk to our fountain experts. 

Hosking Nursery has created a collection of drilled natural rock fountains.  Each unique piece combines the beauty of natural stone with the soothing sound and sight of flowing water, and would fit perfectly next to a patio or deck.
We are proud that a Hosking Nursery water garden kit was featured in the June 2006 issue of Popular Mechanics. The venerable home improvement magazine published an article on the rise in popularity of water gardens and used our easy to install, affordable kit to illustrate the hottest trend in gardening. We've assembled all the components in one convenient kit- just add rocks, water, and plants. You can read Popular Mechanics' article here and see images from the photo shoot here. You can purchase the water garden kit here.
