Read on for specific benefits incorporating brass garden fountains into your landscape. 

Brass fountains are rust resistant & durable

The Double Spillway Brass Bowl Fountain by Blue Thumb is 53+ total pounds of brass bowls and components. Unlike other metals, brass does not rust!


Unlike iron or steel, brass does not rust and is a durable metal that can withstand outdoor elements including sunlight exposure, rain, and temperature extremes. 

High-quality brass fountains, like the models built by the Blue Thumb design team and offered by Fountainful, are built to last. They ensure years of water feature enjoyment by maintaining their visual appeal and structural & functional integrity over time. 

Patina development on brass fountains

The aqua patina, applied to these brass fountains shortly after being made, is seen here on the Tapered Square Brass Urn Fountain by Blue Thumb.


Brass is an alloy that's usually made up of 67% copper and 33% zinc. As brass ages, it develops a natural patina due to the oxidation of its copper component.

The brass spillway fountains from Fountainful already have a jumpstart on this aged look, as the brass is given an aqua toned patina shortly after being formed into the bowls and urn. This patina finish adds depth and character to the metal’s appearance and will further enhance an existing vintage or antique decorative theme. 

Diverse placement options for brass fountains

With modern material + aqua patina finish, the Triple Spillway Brass Bowl Fountain by Blue Thumb is at home in any decorative theme: rustic, modern, farmhouse and more. 


Fashioned metals and alloys are typically associated with modern design themes. However, the aqua tone patina applied to the brass fountains featured in this post adds a rustic element that makes these fountains viable contenders for placement in a diverse range of decorative themes

Additionally, brass is typically associated with luxury and sophistication. Whether your plans for a brass fountain is as the focal point of your landscape or tucked away for private enjoyment, they provide a way to level up the aesthetic appeal of your space and add a touch of elegance to its surroundings.
