The two types of water features available to you are mounted and freestanding models. Little, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be hung on any surface. Fountains of this kind need to be lightweight, therefore, they are typically fabricated from resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass. Free-standing fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, are of considerable size, have a basin located on the ground and a smooth side which leans against a wall. Water features such as these are typically made of cast stone and have no weight limits.

It is a good idea to integrate a customized fountain into a new or existing wall, something often suggested by landscape experts. Installing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work requires a professional mason to do it correctly. A fountain mask or a spout also needs to be integrated into the wall. Custom-built wall fountains contribute to a unified look because they become part of the scenery rather than look like a later addition.
