There are several broad categories of outdoor fountain that have similar setup techniques. You are familiar I am sure with the type of fountain you have on hand, if not, ask. The two main types of outdoor fountains are the wall and pedestal types.
Garden Wall Fountain Setup
Garden wall fountains are meant to be placed up against a wall, fence, post or other supporting structure. This is support is necessary due to the upper portions of the fountain being separate from the lower section in most cases. Also, wall fountains for the garden are made to take up less space then pedestal types. This is because they are usually situated along pathways where people pass by and are not meant to command a large space. It is always important to consider this fact when setting up, or before purchasing, these types of fountains to ensure you have a structure in place that will provide adequate support. In addition, the pictures you see online in almost every case only show a photo from the front, which is of course the most attractive view, but from an installation viewpoint it can also be important to consider the rear of the fountain which typically has a horizontal bar in the back of the top section that is used to secure a wire to it from the supporting wall or other structure.
