Your Patio: The Perfect Place for a Garden Fountain

The addition of a wall fountain or an outdoor garden fountain is a great way to embellish your yard or garden design. Modern-day artists and fountain builders alike use historic fountains and water features to shape their creations.Patio: Perfect Place Garden Fountain 09844440.jpg Therefore, in order to link your home to previous times, add one these in your decor. In addition to the positive characteristics of garden fountains, they also generate water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, drawing in birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. Birds drawn to a fountain or bird bath often scare away irritating flying invaders, for instance.

The area required for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the perfect size for a small yard. Two options to pick from include either a freestanding type with an even back set against a fence or wall in your garden, or a wall-mounted, self-contained type which is suspended on a wall. Adding a fountain to an existing wall requires that you add a fountain mask as well as a basin at the bottom to collect the water. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this type of job requires training, so it is best to employ a skilled person rather than do it yourself.

Choose from Any Number of Outdoor Wall Fountain Styles

Wall fountains are well suited to small verandas or yards because they do not take up too much space while also adding a touch of flair and providing a great place to find peace and quiet. Conventional, antique, contemporary, or Asian are just some of the designs you can choose from when looking for an outdoor wall fountain to your liking. While there are innumerable prefabricated ones on the market, you may need a custom-built fountain if none of these are pleasing to you.

The two types of fountains available to you are mounted and freestanding models.Choose Number Outdoor Wall Fountain Styles 8111791011.jpg Mounted wall fountains are small and self-contained variations which can be displayed on a wall. Fountains of this kind need to be lightweight, therefore, they are typically made of resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass. Large-sized free-standing wall fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, have their basins positioned on the floor and a flat side leaning on a wall. Typically made of cast stone, these water features have no weight limitations.

Custom-built fountains which can be integrated into a new or existing wall are often recommended by landscaping designers. Placing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work needs a expert mason to do it right. You will need to integrate a spout or fountain mask into the wall. Customized wall fountains lend to a unified look because they become part of the scenery rather than look like a later addition.
