The Positive Benefits of Adding a Water Feature in Your Living Area

You can enhance your outdoor space by including a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your yard or gardening project. Modern-day artists and fountain builders alike use historical fountains and water features to shape their creations. As such, the impact of integrating one of these to your interior decor connects it to past times. In addition to the positive attributes of garden fountains, they also generate water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, attracting birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment.Positive Benefits Adding Water Feature Living Area 0940849138.jpg For example, birds attracted by a fountain or birdbath can be helpful because they fend off irritating flying insects.

Wall fountains are a good alternative if your yard is small because they do not need much space in contrast to a spouting or cascading fountain. There are two types of fountains to pick 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. Both a fountain mask placed on the existing wall as well as a basin located at the bottom to collect the water are equired if you wish to add a fountain. It is best not to attempt this job yourself as skilled plumbers and masons are best suited to do this type of work.

Your Garden Fountain: Maintenance & Routine Service

An important first step before installing any outdoor wall feature is to consider the space you have available.Garden Fountain: Maintenance & Routine Service 9986392868610642.jpg It will need a strong wall to support its overall weight. Therefore for smaller areas or walls, a light fountain is going to be more appropriate. An electric socket close to the fountain is needed to power the fountain. Whatever the style of outdoor wall fountain you buy, they typically come with simple to understand, step-by-step instructions.

The general outdoor wall fountain 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 provided in the kit. Depending on its size, the basin can normally be hidden quite easily amongst the plants. Since outdoor wall fountains require little maintenance, the only thing left to do is clean it consistently.

Replace and clean the water on a regular schedule. Debris such as branches, leaves or dirt should be cleared away quickly. Make sure that your outdoor wall fountain is shielded from freezing winter temperatures. Bring your pump inside when the weather turns very cold and freezes the water so as to eliminate any possible damage, like as cracking. All in all, an outdoor wall fountain can last for any number of years with proper servicing and care.
