The Positive Benefits of installing a garden fountain in Your Living Area

The inclusion of a wall water feature or an outdoor garden fountain is a great way to adorn your yard or garden design. Many contemporary designers and artisans have been influenced by historical fountains and water features. As such, introducing one of these to your interior is a superb way to connect it to the past. In addition to the positive attributes of garden fountains, they also generate water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, attracting birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. For example, birds attracted by a fountain or birdbath can be helpful because they fend off annoying flying insects.

Wall fountains are a good option if your yard is small because they do not require much space in contrast 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 backyard, or a wall-mounted, self-contained type which is suspended on a wall. 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. It is best not to undertake this job yourself as professional plumbers and masons are more suitable to do this type of work.

Exterior Wall Fountains: The Many Styles Available

Exterior Wall Fountains: Many Styles Available 2192338763911950131.jpg Small patios or courtyards are a perfect place to install wall fountains because they add style to an area with little space. Conventional, antique, contemporary, or Asian are just some of the styles 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.

Mounted and free-standing water features are readily available on the market. Little, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be hung on any surface. Normally made of resin (to resemble stone) or fiber glass, these types 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 smooth side leaning on a wall. Water features such as these are typically made of cast stone and have no weight restrictions.

Landscape designers often propose a custom-built fountain for a brand new or existing wall. A professional mason is required to place the water basin against the wall and correctly install all the plumbing inside or behind the wall. It is also necessary to add a spout or fountain mask to build it into the wall. A custom-made wall fountain blends into the landscape instead of standing out because it was a later addition, which contributes to a cohesive look.
