Your Patio: The Perfect Spot for a Fountain

The area outside your residence can be polished up by adding a wall or a garden fountain to your landscaping or garden project. Historical fountains and water features have sparked the notice of contemporary designers as well as fountain designers.Patio: Perfect Spot Fountain 71410928.jpg Therefore, in order to link your home to earlier times, include one these in your home decor. Among the many properties of these beautiful garden fountains 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. For instance, irritating flying insects are usually deterred by the birds drawn to the fountain or birdbath.

Spouting or cascading fountains are not the best alternative for a small yard since they require a great deal of space. There are two types of fountains to choose from including the freestanding version with a flat back and an attached basin set up against a fence or a wall in your yard, or the wall-mounted, self-contained variety which is hung directly on a wall. Adding a fountain to an existing wall requires that you add a fountain mask as well as a basin at the base to gather the water. Be sure to work with a specialist for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work required.

Pick from Many Outdoor Wall Fountain Styles

If you want to create a place to relax and add some pizzazz to a small area such as a patio or courtyard, wall fountains are perfect because they do not occupy much space. The multitude of designs in outdoor wall fountains, including traditional, classic, contemporary, or Asian, means that you can find the one suitable to your wishes. It is possible to have one custom-made if you are not able to find a pre-assembled fountain to suit you.

Depending on your wishes, you can select from mounted or freestanding types. Mounted wall fountains are small and self-contained versions which can be placed on a wall. Fountains of this kind need to be lightweight, therefore, they are typically made of resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass. In large stand-alone fountains, otherwise referred to as wall fountains, the basin is set on the ground with the flat side positioned against a wall. Water features such as these are ordinarily manufactured of cast stone and have no weight limitations.

Many qualified landscapers prefer custom-built fountains which can be integrated into a brand-new wall or an existing one. A professional mason is required to place the water basin against the wall and properly install all the plumbing inside or behind the wall. You will need to integrate a spout or fountain mask 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 unified look.
