Outdoor Living Area: Great Place Wall Fountain 0899086659142179229.jpg The area outside your home can be polished up by including a wall or a garden fountain to your landscaping or garden project. Any number of present-day designers and fountain craftsmen have found inspiration in the fountains and water features of the past. As such, introducing one of these to your interior is a great way to connect it to the past. In addition to the positive attributes 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 scared away by the birds congregating near the fountain or birdbath.

The area necessary for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the ideal size for a small yard. You can choose to set up a stand-alone fountain with a flat back and an connected basin propped against a fence or wall in your backyard, or a wall-mounted type which is self-contained and hung from a wall. A water feature 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. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this kind of job requires training, so it is best to employ a skilled person rather than go at it yourself.Taking Care Water Wall Fountains 6912432324205696623.jpg

Taking Care Of Water Wall Fountains

A very important first step is to think about the size of the outdoor wall fountain with regards to the area you have available for it. It is essential that the wall where you are going to hang it is strong enough to support its weight. Areas or walls that are smaller will call for a lightweight fountain. An electric socket near the fountain is needed to power the fountain. Whatever the style of outdoor wall fountain you buy, they generally come with simple to understand, step-by-step instructions.

The general outdoor wall fountain is available in an easy-to-use kit that comes with everything you need and more to properly install it. A submersible pump, hoses and basin, or reservoir, are provided in the kit. The basin can usually be hidden away among your garden plants if it is not too big. Once fitted, wall fountains typically only require some light upkeep and regular cleaning.

Replace and clean the water on a regular schedule. It is important to quickly clear away debris such as leaves, twigs or other dreck. In addition, your outdoor wall fountain should not be exposed to freezing winter temperatures. Bring your pump inside when the weather turns very cold and freezes the water so as to eliminate any possible harm, such as cracking. Simply put, your outdoor fountain will be around for many years to come with the proper care and maintenance.
