Pick from Many Outdoor Wall Fountain Designs

If you want to create a place to relax as well as add some flair to a small area such as a patio or courtyard, wall fountains are perfect because they do not occupy much space. Conventional, antique, contemporary, or Asian are just a few of the styles you can pick from when looking for an outdoor wall fountain to your liking. Your tastes determine the type you buy so while there may not be a prefabricated fountain to suit you, you do have the option of having a custom made one.

There are two distinct sorts of fountains you can buy: mounted and free-standing. Small, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be hung on any surface. Typically made of resin (to resemble stone) or fiber glass, these kinds of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. Large-sized free-standing wall fountains, commonly referred to as floor fountains, have their basins positioned on the floor and a flat side leaning on a wall. There are no weight restrictions on these kinds of cast stone water features.

It is a good idea to incorporate a customized fountain into a new or existing wall, something often recommended by landscape professionals. Employing an expert mason is your best option to construct the basin and install the essential plumbing. You will need to incorporate a spout or fountain mask into the wall. Custom-built wall fountains contribute to a unified look because they become part of the landscape rather than look like a later addition.

Your Outdoor Living Area: A Great Spot for a Wall Fountain

The inclusion of a wall fountain or an outdoor garden fountain is an excellent way to embellish your yard or garden design. A myriad of present-day designers and fountain artisans have found ideas in the fountains and water features of the past. You can also reinforce the link to the past by including one of these to your home's interior design. Among the many attributes 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. Flying, irritating 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 backyard because a spouting or cascading fountain takes up too much space. Either a stand-alone fountain with an even back and an attached basin placed against a fence or a wall, or a wall-mounted style which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the options from which you can choose.Outdoor Living Area: Great Spot Wall Fountain 2186319747612.jpg A water feature can be added to an existing wall if you include some sort of fountain mask as well as a basin to gather the water at the bottom. Be sure to hire a professional for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work involved.
