Select from Many Outdoor Wall Fountain Styles

Small verandas or courtyards are a perfect place to set up wall fountains because they add style to an area with limited space. Traditional, antique, modern, or Asian are just some of the styles you can pick from when looking for an outdoor wall fountain to your liking. Your preferences dictate the type you buy so while there may not be a prefabricated fountain to suit you, you do have the option of having a customized one.

Depending on your wishes, you can select from mounted or freestanding models. Little, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be installed on any surface. Wall fountains made of resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass are typically light so they can be easily hung. Large-sized free-standing wall fountains, commonly referred to as floor fountains, have their basins positioned on the floor and a flat side leaning on a wall. Water features such as these are usually made of cast stone and have no weight limitations.Select Many Outdoor Wall Fountain Styles 4069865111965.jpg

Custom-built fountains which can be integrated into a new or existing wall are often prescribed by landscaping designers. Placing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work requires a professional mason to do it correctly. It is also essential to include a spout or fountain mask to build it into the wall. The cohesive look provided by customized wall fountains make them appear to be part of the scenery rather than an afterthought.

The area necessary for a cascading or spouting fountain is considerable, so a wall fountain is the ideal size for a small yard.
