    Personally I would not put that fountain in my front or back yard, but that's not because I consider it vulgar. Fountains are just not my style.

    I've seen copies of that fountain all over the place, personally I don't consider it vulgar. If you feel it suits your neighborhood and your style, go for it.

    :lol: good one Mary. If it was mine I'd display it wherever I thought it looked good in my garden, after all it is a classic.
