The Wide Array of Outdoor Wall Fountains

Putting a wall fountain in your backyard or patio is perfect when you want to relax. You can have one custom-built to fit your requirements even if you have a minimum amount of space. Both the stand alone and fitted versions need to have a spout, a water basin, internal tubing, and a pump. There are any number of models to pick from such as traditional, contemporary, classic, or Asian.

Usually quite large, freestanding wall fountains, also known as floor fountains, have their basins on the ground.

You can decide to place your wall-mounted fountain on an existing wall or build it into a new wall. This style of fountain contributes to a cohesive look making it appear as if it was part of the landscape rather than an added feature.

The Many Reasons to Include a Wall Fountain

The addition of a wall fountain or an outdoor garden fountain is an excellent way to beautify your yard or garden design. Any number of present-day designers and fountain craftsmen have found ideas in the fountains and water features of the past. You can also reinforce the connection to the past by including one of these to your home's interior design. The water and moisture garden fountains release into the environment draws birds and other creatures, and also balances the ecosystem, all of which contribute to the benefits of having one of these beautiful water features. For example, irritating flying insects are usually deterred by the birds attracted to the fountain or birdbath.

The area required for a cascading or spouting fountain is considerable, so a wall fountain is the perfect size for a small yard. Two possibilities to choose from include either a freestanding type with an even back set against a fence or wall in your backyard, or a wall-mounted, self-contained type which is suspended on a wall. Make certain to include a fountain mask to an existing wall and a basin to collect the water at the bottom if you wish to put in a fountain to your living area. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this kind of job requires know-how, so it is best to employ a skilled person rather than go at it yourself.
