The Many Designs of Wall Water Fountains

Small verandas or courtyards are a perfect place to install wall fountains since they add style to an area with limited space. When considering the many types of outdoor wall fountains available including traditional, vintage, contemporary, or Asian, you are certain to find one best suited to your design ideas. Your tastes dictate the type you buy so while there may not be a prefabricated fountain to satisfy you, you do have the option of having a custom made one.

Depending on your requirements, you can choose from mounted or freestanding models. Mounted wall fountains are little and self-contained variations which can be displayed on a wall. Wall fountains made of resin ( similar to stone) or fiberglass are typically lightweight so they can be easily hung. Stand-alone 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 typically made of cast stone and have no weight limits.

It is a good idea to incorporate a custom-made fountain into a new or existing wall, something often suggested by landscape experts. Installing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work requires a expert mason to do it properly. You will need to incorporate a spout or fountain mask into the wall.Many Designs Wall Water Fountains 10726894170743323.jpg The cohesive look provided by customized wall fountains make them appear to be part of the scenery rather than an afterthought.Water Wall Fountain: Upkeep & Routine Service 0217082726.jpg

Your Water Wall Fountain: Upkeep & Routine Service

A very important first step is to consider the dimensions of the outdoor wall fountain with regards to the space you have available for it. A solid wall is absolutely needed to hold up its total weight. Therefore for smaller areas or walls, a more lightweight feature is going to be more suitable. An electric socket close to the fountain is needed to power the fountain. There are many different types of fountains, each with their own set of simple, step-by-step directions.

All you will need to properly install your outdoor wall fountain is normally provided in easy-to-use kits. The kit will contain a submersible pump, the hoses and basin (or reservoir). Depending on its size, the basin can typically be hidden quite easily amongst the plants. Since outdoor wall fountains need little maintenance, the only thing left to do is clean it regularly.

Replace the water frequently so it is always clean. It is important to quickly get rid of debris such as leaves, twigs or other dreck. Furthermore, outdoor fountains should always be shielded from freezing temperatures in wintertime. In order to avoid any damage, such as cracking, from freezing water during the cold winter season, relocate your pump inside. Simply put, your outdoor fountain will be a part of your life for many years to come with the proper care and maintenance.
