A water feature can be added to an existing wall if you include some kind of fountain mask as well as a basin to collect the water at the bottom.

The myriad of styles in outdoor wall fountains, including traditional, classic, contemporary, or Asian, means that you can find the one best suited to your tastes. Your tastes dictate 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.

The two kinds of water features available to you are mounted and stand-alone models. Small, self-contained models can be hung on a wall are known as mounted wall fountains. Wall fountains made of resin ( similar to stone) or fiberglass are normally light so they can be easily hung.

Typically made of cast stone, these water features have no weight constraints.

Many skilled landscapers favor custom-built fountains which can be incorporated into a brand-new wall or an existing one. A skilled mason is required to install the water basin against the wall and correctly install all the plumbing inside or behind the wall. A fountain mask or a spout also needs to be integrated into the wall. The unified look provided by customized wall fountains make them appear to be part of the landscape rather than an afterthought.
