Your Outdoor Living Area: A Great Place for a Garden Fountain

You can perfect your outdoor area by adding a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your yard or gardening project. Any number of current designers and fountain artisans have found ideas in the fountains and water features of the past. As such, introducing one of these to your interior is a superb way to connect it to the past. The benefit of having a garden fountain extends beyond its beauty as it also appeals to birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it releases into the atmosphere. For instance, irritating flying insects are usually deterred by the birds attracted to the fountain or birdbath.

Wall fountains are a good option if your yard is small because they do not need much space in contrast to a spouting or cascading fountain. You can choose to put in a stand-alone fountain with a flat back and an connected 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 equired if you wish to add a fountain. Since the plumbing and masonry work is extensive to complete this type of job, you should employ a specialist to do it rather than attempt to do it alone.

Exterior Wall Fountains: The Many Styles Available

Small verandas or courtyards are an ideal place to install wall fountains because they add style to an area with limited space. The myriad of styles in outdoor wall fountains, including traditional, classic, contemporary, or Asian, means that you can find the one best suited to your tastes. While there are countless prefabricated ones on the market, you may need a custom-built fountain if none of these are appealing to you.

Depending on your needs, you can choose from mounted or freestanding types. You can install a mounted wall fountain because they are little and self-contained.Exterior Wall Fountains: Many Styles Available 6155956326485801.jpg Typically made of resin (to resemble stone) or fiber glass, these types of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. Free-standing fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, are sizable, have a basin positioned on the ground and a smooth side which leans against a wall. Typically made of cast stone, these water features have no weight constraints.

Custom-made fountains which can be integrated into a new or existing wall are often recommended by landscaping designers. Hiring an expert mason is your best option to build the basin and install the essential plumbing. You will need to incorporate a spout or fountain mask into the wall. Customized wall fountains add to a unified appearance because they become part of the landscape rather than look like a later addition.
