The Countless Designs of Water Wall Fountains

Wall fountains are well suited to small verandas or yards because they do not take up too much space while also adding a bit of flair and providing a great place to find peace and quiet. When considering the many types of outdoor wall fountains available including traditional, antique, modern, or Asian, you are certain to find one best suited to your design ideas.Countless Designs Water Wall Fountains 242141056615.jpg Your tastes 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 custom made one.

There are two distinct styles of fountains you can buy: mounted and stand-alone. Small, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be installed on any surface. Fountains of this kind need to be light, therefore, they are typically fabricated from resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass. Sizable free-standing wall fountains, commonly referred to as floor fountains, have their basins located on the floor and a flat side leaning on a wall. Typically constructed of cast stone, this type of water feature is not restricted in weight.

Custom-built fountains which can be incorporated into a new or existing wall are often recommended by landscaping designers. A skilled mason is required to install the water basin against the wall and properly install all the plumbing inside or behind the wall. A fountain mask or a spout also needs to be incorporated into the wall. If you want a cohesive look for your garden, buy a customized wall fountain because it becomes part of the panorama rather than an afterthought.

The area required for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the perfect size for a small yard. You can choose to set up a stand-alone fountain with a flat back and an attached basin propped against a fence or wall in your backyard, or a wall-mounted type which is self-contained and hung from a wall. Both a fountain mask located on the existing wall as well as a basin located at the bottom to collect the water are necessary if you wish to add a fountain. Since the plumbing and masonry work is extensive to complete this type of job, you should hire a professional to do it rather than try to do it alone.
