The Myriad Designs of Water Wall Fountains

Small verandas or courtyards are a perfect place to install wall fountains since they add style to an area with little space. When looking at the many types of outdoor wall fountains available including traditional, antique, contemporary, or Asian, you are certain to find one best suited to your design ideas. It is possible to have one custom-made if you are not able to find a pre-assembled fountain to suit you.Myriad Designs Water Wall Fountains 6183225089268.jpg

There are two specific styles of fountains you can buy: mounted and free-standing. Mounted wall fountains are small and self-contained versions which can be hung on a wall. Normally made of resin (to look like 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 positioned on the floor and a smooth side leaning on a wall. Generally constructed of cast stone, this type of water feature is not limited in weight.

Landscape professionals often recommend a customized fountain for a brand new or existing wall. Placing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work needs a professional mason to do it correctly. The wall will have to have a spout or fountain mask incorporated into it. If you want a cohesive look for your garden, buy a customized wall fountain because it becomes part of the panorama rather than an afterthought.

Taking Care Of Large Garden Fountains

An important facet to consider is the size of the outdoor wall fountain in relation to the space in which you are going to install it. A solid wall is absolutely needed to hold up its total weight. Therefore for smaller areas or walls, a lightweight feature is going to be more suitable. In order to power the fountain, an electrical socket will need to be close by. Whatever the style of outdoor wall fountain you select, they generally come with simple to understand, step-by-step instructions.

The general outdoor wall feature is available in an easy-to-use kit that comes with everything you need and more to properly install it. A submersible pump, hoses and basin, or reservoir, are included in the kit. Depending on its size, the basin can typically be hidden quite easily amongst the plants. Other than the regular cleaning, little upkeep is required once your outdoor wall fountain is installed.

Change the water frequently so it is always clean. It is important to promptly remove debris such as leaves, twigs or other dreck. Excessively cold temperatures can affect 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, move your pump indoors. The bottom line is that if you properly maintain and look after for your outdoor fountain, it will bring you joy for years to come.
