Exterior Wall Fountains: The Numerous Designs Available

Wall fountains are well suited to small 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 considering 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. It is possible to have one custom-made if you are unable to find a prefabricated fountain to suit you.

There are two distinct styles of fountains you can buy: mounted and free-standing. Mounted wall fountains are little and self-contained versions which can be placed on a wall. Typically made of resin (to look like stone) or fiber glass, these kinds of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. Sizable free-standing wall fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, have their basins located on the floor and a flat side leaning on a wall. There are no weight constraints on these kinds of cast stone water features.

It is a good idea to integrate a customized fountain into a new or existing wall, something often recommended by landscape experts. Placing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work needs a professional mason to do it properly. It is also essential to add a spout or fountain mask to build it into the wall. If you want a cohesive look for your garden, buy a customized wall fountain because it becomes part of the panorama rather than an afterthought.

Installation and Maintenance of Large Garden Fountains

A vital first step before installing any outdoor wall feature is to analyze the room you have available. A strong wall is definitely necessary to hold up its overall weight. So areas or walls which are smaller will most probably require something lightweight. You will need to have an electrical outlet in the vicinity of the fountain so it can be powered. There are many different models of fountains, each with their own set of simple, step-by-step directions.

Generally, when you purchase an outdoor wall fountain, it will come in an easy-to-use kit that will include all the information needed to install it correctly. In the kit you are going to find all the needed essentials: a submersible pump, hoses and basin, or reservoir.Installation Maintenance Large Garden Fountains 293857962374234.jpg The basin, if it's not too large, can easily be hiddenin your garden among the plants. Since outdoor wall fountains require little maintenance, the only thing left to do is clean it consistently.

Replace the water frequently so it is always clean. Rubbish such as branches, leaves or dirt should be cleaned up quickly. In addition, your outdoor wall fountain should not be exposed to freezing winter weather. Bring your pump inside when the weather turns very cold and freezes the water so as to avoid any possible damage, such as cracking. All in all, an outdoor wall fountain can last for any number of years with proper servicing and care.
