Installation and Maintenance of Outdoor Fountains

A vital first step before installing any outdoor wall fountain is to analyze the area you have available. It will need a solid wall to support its overall weight. So spaces or walls which are smaller will most probably require something lightweight. An electric socket near 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.

The typical outdoor wall feature is available in an easy-to-use kit that comes with everything you need and more to properly install it. The kit will contain a submersible pump, the hoses and basin (or reservoir). The basin, if it's not too big, can easily be hiddenin your garden among the plants. Once installed, wall fountains typically only need to have some light upkeep and regular cleaning.

Replace and clean the water on a regular basis. Debris such as branches, leaves or dirt should be cleared away quickly. Excessively cold temperatures can damage your outdoor wall fountain so be sure to protect it during the winter months. In order to avoid any damage, such as cracking, from freezing water during the cold winter season, relocate your pump indoors. All in all, an outdoor wall fountain can last for any number of years with proper servicing and care.

A Wall Fountain to Suit Your Decor

You can find tranquility and quiet when you add a wall fountain in your garden or patio. Even a small space can contain a custom-built one. A spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump are necessary for freestanding as well as mounted varieties. Traditional, modern, classic, and Asian are just some of the styles from which you can consider.

With its basin laid on the ground, freestanding wall fountains, or floor fountains, are normally quite large in size.

On the other hand, a fountain affixed to a wall can be added onto an existing wall or fit into a new wall. Integrating this type of water feature into your landscape adds a cohesiveness to the look you want to achieve rather than making it seem as if the fountain was merely added later.
