Your Garden: A Great Place for a Wall Fountain

You can enhance your exterior area by including a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your property or gardening project. Modern-day artists and fountain builders alike use historical fountains and water features to shape their creations. You can also reinforce the connection to the past by incorporating one of these to your home's interior design. In addition to the wonderful characteristics of garden fountains, they also generate water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, drawing in birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. Flying, annoying insects, for instance, are frightened off by the birds congregating around the fountain or birdbath.

Spouting or cascading fountains are not the best choice for a small yard since they require a great deal of space. There are two types of fountains to choose from including the freestanding model 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 version which is hung directly on a wall. A fountain 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. Since the plumbing and masonry work is extensive to complete this type of job, you should employ a professional to do it rather than try to do it alone.

Exterior Wall Fountains: The Many Designs Available

If you want to have a place to relax and add some flair to a small area such as a patio or courtyard, wall fountains are ideal because they do not take up much space. Traditional, antique, modern, or Asian are just some of the designs you can choose from when looking for an outdoor wall fountain to your liking. It is possible to have one customized if you are unable to find a prefabricated fountain to suit you.Exterior Wall Fountains: Many Designs Available 867595882960227.jpg

The two types of fountains available to you include mounted and freestanding models. Little, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be installed on any surface. Normally made of resin (to look like stone) or fiber glass, these kinds of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. Stand-alone fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, are of considerable size, have a basin positioned on the ground and a smooth side which leans against a wall. Water features such as these are ordinarily made of cast stone and have no weight limits.

Many qualified landscapers prefer custom-built fountains which can be integrated into a brand-new wall or an existing one. Installing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work needs a expert mason to do it properly. It is also essential to include a spout or fountain mask to build it into the wall. Customized wall fountains add to a unified look because they become part of the landscape rather than look like a later addition.
