Exterior Wall Fountains: The Many Designs Available

Exterior Wall Fountains: Many Designs Available 43276145.jpg Wall fountains are well suited to little verandas or yards because they do not require too much space while also adding a bit of style and providing a great place to find peace and quiet. Traditional, antique, contemporary, or Asian are just a few of the designs you can pick from when looking for an outdoor wall fountain to your liking. It is possible to have one custom-made if you are unable to find a prefabricated fountain to suit you.

The two types of fountains available to you are mounted and freestanding models. Mounted wall fountains are little and self-contained variations which can be placed on a wall. Fountains of this kind need to be lightweight, therefore, they are typically fabricated from resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass. Large-sized free-standing wall fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, have their basins positioned on the floor and a flat side leaning on a wall. There are no weight limits on these sorts of cast stone water features.

It is a good idea to integrate a custom-made fountain into a new or existing wall, something often recommended by landscape experts. A skilled mason is required to place the water basin against the wall and correctly install all the plumbing inside or behind the wall. The wall will have to have a spout or fountain mask incorporated into it. Custom-built wall fountains contribute to a unified appearance because they become part of the scenery rather than look like a later addition.

The Myriad Reasons to Include a Water Feature

Myriad Reasons Include Water Feature 223794770.jpg The area outside your home can be polished up by including a wall or a garden fountain to your landscaping or garden project. Modern-day artists and fountain builders alike use historical fountains and water features to shape their creations. You can also strengthen the connection to the past by incorporating one of these to your home's interior design. In addition to the positive attributes of garden fountains, they also generate water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, drawing in birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. Flying, irritating insects, for instance, are scared away by the birds congregating around the fountain or birdbath.

Wall fountains are a good alternative if your yard is small because they do not need much space as compared to a spouting or cascading fountain. Two options to pick from include either a freestanding type with an even back set against a fence or wall in your garden, or a wall-mounted, self-contained type which is suspended on a wall. Adding a fountain to an existing wall requires that you include a fountain mask as well as a basin at the base to collect the water. Since the plumbing and masonry work is substantial to complete this type of job, you should employ a specialist to do it rather than attempt to do it alone.
