Giannini Garden Ornaments was founded in 1993 by Marino and Piera Giannini. Their first designs were hanging wall fountains and planters. Giannini now occupies a 2.5 acre factory and showroom in South San Francisco, California. We cast up to 900 cast-stone fountains and statue molds a day that form fountains, planters, pedestals, benches and statues that the Giannini's design and all are produced on site. Marino and Piera are now joined by their sons, Pier Luigi and Alessandro who help run the stone cast factory and showroom right here in the San Francisco, Bay Area.
As a truly hands-on business it takes two to three months to take one of Marino's drawings from start to finish and involves a skilled process of hand sculpting and mold making. When the mold is ready for production, it is filled with a slurry of high quality cement, aggregates, water, steel, synthetic fibers, and additives to ensure strength and durability. The product is then cured and finished with one of their 20 signature colors that are applied by hand.

This outdoor decor is covered by a manufacturer/'s LIMITED warranty for one (1) year after purchase.

NOTE: The warranty does not cover damage from white scale, lime scale, calcium buildup, or efflorescence. The warranty does not cover damage due to the use of chlorinated water. Chlorine is very harsh to cast stone. A sealant needs to be used on the stone to seal and protect it. Concrete Sealant can be purchased from your local hardware store.

This manufacturer of garden ornaments has been designing and manufacturing quality fine garden ornaments including fountains, planters, benches, and statuary in the USA since 1993.
Neither Gardecor, Inc. nor the manufacturer are responsible for cracks due to filling hot fountains with cold water and vice versa, improper winter storage, or off-applications (used for something other than for what it was produced). Do not fill a fountain with water when the fountain is hot to the touch, cold water can cause cracks in the fountain. Do not add anything to the water unless it is specifically formulated for concrete as well as the color finish. If you purchase water treatment, test it on a small hidden part to ensure the color doesn/'t change or the concrete doesn/'t dissolve or the color doesn/'t change. Do not add salts around or to the fountain.
Caution: EXCESS WEIGHT OR PRESSURE ON THE FOUNTAIN MAY CAUSE IT TO FALL. KEEP CHILDREN AND OTHERS FROM CLIMBING, SITTING OR LEANING ON THE FOUNTAIN AND ITS COMPONENTS. MOST FOUNTAINS HAVE NO INTERLOCKING COMPONENT PARTS. THE COMPONENT PARTS ARE HELD BY GRAVITY ONLY. GLUING OR CEMENTING THE COMPONENT PARTS TOGETHER IS NOT RECOMMENDED. THE PARTS MAY NEED TO BE DISMANTLED TO REPLACE THE PUMP, HARDWARE, OR TO MOVE THE FOUNTAIN TO ANOTHER LOCATION.
NOTE: Hard water can damage the cast stone. Here is a map from the USGS showing areas of hard water, the red and white areas. To be certain, check your local water department because hard water areas can be localized. Such damage can void your warranty. Consider using a water softener additive to your fountain water after testing it on a hidden part of the fountain.
