The Myriad Reasons to Add a Fountain

You can enhance your exterior area by adding a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your property or gardening project. Modern-day designers and fountain builders alike use historical fountains and water features to shape their creations. As such, integrating one of these to your interior is a great way to connect it to the past. The water and moisture garden fountains release into the environment draws birds and other creatures, and also balances the ecosystem, all of which add to the advantages of having one of these beautiful water features. Flying, annoying insects, for instance, are frightened off by the birds congregating around the fountain or birdbath.

Wall fountains are a good option if your yard is small because they do not need much space as compared to a spouting or cascading fountain. Either a stand-alone fountain with an even back and an attached basin placed against a fence or a wall, or a wall-mounted kind which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the possibilities from which you can choose. A water feature can be added to an existing wall if you include some type of fountain mask as well as a basin to gather the water at the bottom. Be sure to work with 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.

The Many Styles of Wall Fountains

Many Styles Wall Fountains 523507276277024110.jpg Wall fountains are well suited to little 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 looking at the many types of outdoor wall fountains available including traditional, vintage, modern, or Asian, you are certain to find one best suited to your design ideas. While there are countless prefabricated ones on the market, you may need a customized fountain if none of these are pleasing to you.

Mounted and stand-alone water features are obtainable on the market. Mounted wall fountains are small and self-contained versions which can be placed on a wall. Normally made of resin (to resemble stone) or fiber glass, these kinds of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. Free-standing fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, are of considerable size, have a basin located on the ground and a smooth side which leans against a wall. Water features such as these are ordinarily manufactured of cast stone and have no weight limitations.

It is a good idea to incorporate a custom-made fountain into a new or existing wall, something often recommended by landscape experts. Hiring an expert mason is your best option to build the basin and install the essential plumbing. The wall will need to have a spout or fountain mask built into it. If you want a cohesive look for your garden, get a customized wall fountain because it becomes part of the panorama rather than an afterthought.
