Alabaster vs. Concrete

There are many choices to make when choosing the best fountain for your home and garden. Of course you need to determine the location of your glasses. Will it be in the garden, on the patio, in your inner hall, or the quiet little corner where you relax every evening? This decision brings us to the choice of materials for the fountain.

There are two main types of materials used to make fountains and used by artisans. These are just some of the goal setting shareware that you can use.


Polyrization and alabasterite are used interchangeably. Albstreet is the material name that manufacturers use for polyesic products. So when you look at descriptive phrases for fountains that include the terms “made from alabastrite” or “polyresin fountain”, they’re actually the same. Alabasterite is a white, chalky, crushed stone material that is softer and more transparent than concrete when processed and can be easily molded into fountains with great detail. The mold fountain can then be painted in different colors so that we can present works of art in our online catalog. Although fountains made from this material can be placed outside the garden, water-soluble paints can fade and wash off after a few years. These fountains are best kept indoors where it is only necessary to remove dust to keep them beautiful for many years.


Concrete fountains are the best choice for outdoor space because the material is heavy and hard and bears elements. Concrete allows a certain level of detail and the overall cost of a large fountain is low. Concrete fountains can be painted, but if used in general, it is the overall color of the entire fountain. Some owners of concrete fountains prefer natural weather and believe that it makes the fountains beautiful with age. If desired, install clear concrete cellars to slow down the aging process. Generally very little maintenance is required unless the fountains are exposed to extreme cold or freezing temperatures. In this case, if it is not possible to store them in an enclosed space, they can be covered with burlap type fabric. If cracks or broken edges should appear, it is possible to purchase a concrete filler from your local home repair shop.

Concrete fountains and polycarbonate fountains are a beautiful addition to any yard, garden, patio and home. With just a little care, they stay beautiful for many years and add to the fun of your home.
