Your Garden: A Great Place for a Garden Fountain

The area outside your residence can be polished up by including a wall or a garden fountain to your landscaping or garden project. Modern-day artists and fountain builders alike use historic fountains and water features to shape their creations. As such, introducing one of these to your home design is a great way to connect it to the past. The benefit of having a garden fountain goes beyond its beauty as it also attracts birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it emits into the atmosphere. For example, irritating flying insects are usually deterred by the birds attracted to 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. Two possibilities to pick 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. Adding a fountain to an existing wall requires that you add a fountain mask as well as a basin at the base to collect the water.Garden: Great Place Garden Fountain 7218664382973370.jpg Be sure to employ a specialist for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work required.Broad Array Outdoor Wall Fountains 065631147.jpg

The Broad Array of Outdoor Wall Fountains

Placing a wall fountain in your backyard or patio is perfect when you want to relax. You can have one custom-built to fit your specifications even if you have a small amount of space. Whether it is stand alone or fitted, you will need a spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump. Traditional, modern, classic, and Asian are just a few of the styles from which you can choose.

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

A wall-mounted fountain can either be incorporated onto a wall already in existence or fitted into a wall under construction. Incorporating this kind of water feature into your landscape brings a cohesiveness to the look you want to attain rather than making it seem as if the fountain was merely added later.
