Pick from Countless Outdoor Wall Fountain Styles

Wall fountains are well suited to small verandas or gardens because they do not require too much space while also adding a touch of style and providing a great place to find peace and quiet. When considering the many types of outdoor wall fountains available including traditional, vintage, modern, or Asian, you are certain to find one most suitable to your design ideas. While there are countless prefabricated ones on the market, you may need a customized fountain if none of these are appealing to you.

There are two distinct styles of fountains you can buy: mounted and free-standing. Small, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be installed on any surface. One of the most important aspects of wall fountains is that they be lightweight, so they are typically made of fiberglass or resin to replicate the look of stone. In large stand-alone fountains, otherwise known as wall fountains, the basin is situated on the ground with the flat side positioned against a wall. Typically made of cast stone, these water features have no weight restrictions.

Custom-made fountains which can be incorporated into a new or existing wall are often prescribed by landscaping designers. A expert mason is necessary to install the water basin against the wall and properly install all the plumbing inside or behind the wall. The wall will have to have a spout or fountain mask incorporated into it. If you want a cohesive look for your garden, buy a customized wall fountain because it becomes part of the scenery rather than an afterthought.

Taking Care Of Wall fountains

A very important first step is to consider the size of the outdoor wall fountain with regards to the space you have available for it. In order to support its total weight, a solid wall is needed. Therefore for smaller areas or walls, a lightweight fountain is going to be more suitable. In order to power the fountain, an electrical plug will need to be nearby. Whatever the style of outdoor wall fountain you choose, they typically come with simple to understand, step-by-step instructions.

Most outdoor wall fountains come in easy-to-use kits that will provide you all you need to properly install it. A submersible pump, hoses and basin, or reservoir, are provided in the kit. The basin, if it's not too big, can easily be hiddenin your garden among the plants. Once fitted, wall fountains typically only require some light upkeep and regular cleaning.

Replace and clean the water on a regular schedule. Debris such as branches, leaves or dirt should be cleared away quickly. In addition, your outdoor wall fountain should not be exposed to freezing winter weather. If kept outdoors, your pump could split as a result of freezing water, so bring it inside during the winter. All in all, an outdoor wall fountain can last for any number of years with proper maintenance and cleaning.
