Your Outdoor Living Area: An Ideal Spot for a Garden Fountain

You can improve your exterior area by including a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your yard or gardening project. Many contemporary designers and craftsmen have been influenced by historical fountains and water features. As such, the effect of adding one of these to your interior decor bridges it to past times. Among the many attributes of these beautiful garden water features is the water and moisture they release into the air which attracts birds and other wild life as well as helps to balance the ecosystem. Flying, annoying insects, for instance, are scared away by the birds congregating near the fountain or birdbath.

Putting in a wall fountain is your best solution for a little garden because a spouting or cascading fountain occupies too much space. You can choose to put in a stand-alone fountain with a flat back and an connected basin propped against a fence or wall in your backyard, or a wall-mounted type which is self-contained and hung from a wall. Be sure to include a fountain mask to an existing wall and a basin to collect the water at the bottom if you wish to add a fountain to your living area. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this kind of work requires know-how, so it is best to hire a skilled person rather than go at it yourself.

It is a good idea to incorporate a custom-made fountain into a new or existing wall, something often suggested by landscape experts. Hiring an expert mason is your best option to build the basin and install the required plumbing. A fountain mask or a spout also needs to be incorporated into the wall. A custom-built wall fountain blends into the landscape instead of standing out because it was a later addition, which adds to a cohesive appearance.
