The Many Good Reasons to Add a Water Feature

A good way to enhance the appeal of your outdoor living area is to add a wall water feature or an exterior garden fountain to your landscaping or garden layout. Historical fountains and water features have sparked the interest of contemporary designers as well as fountain manufacturers. As such, integrating one of these to your interior is a great way to connect it to the past. The benefit of having a garden fountain extends beyond its beauty as it also attracts birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it releases into the atmosphere. For example, birds attracted by a fountain or birdbath can be useful because they fend off annoying flying insects.

The area required for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the perfect size for a small yard. Either a stand-alone fountain with an even back and an attached basin placed against a fence or a wall, or a wall-mounted style which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the possibilities from which you can choose. Adding a fountain to an existing wall requires that you add a fountain mask as well as a basin at the bottom to gather the water. Be sure to employ a specialist for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work required.
