The Myriad Reasons to Include a Water Feature

A great way to enhance the look of your outdoor living area is to add a wall water feature or an exterior garden fountain to your landscaping or garden design.Myriad Reasons Include Water Feature 2022342681353.jpg Historical fountains and water features have stirred the interest of modern-day designers as well as fountain designers. You can also reinforce the connection to the past by incorporating one of these to your home's interior design. The advantage of having a garden fountain extends 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, birds lured by a fountain or birdbath can be helpful because they fend off bothersome flying insects.

Putting in a wall water feature is your best option for a little backyard because a spouting or cascading fountain takes up too much space. Two possibilities to choose 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. 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 below. Since the plumbing and masonry work is substantial to complete this type of job, you should hire a specialist to do it rather than attempt to do it alone.

When looking at the many types of outdoor wall fountains available including traditional, antique, contemporary, or Asian, you are certain to find one most suitable to your design ideas. Your preferences dictate the type you buy so while there may not be a prefabricated fountain to satisfy you, you do have the option of having a customized one.

The two types of fountains available to you include mounted and freestanding models. Mounted wall fountains are little and self-contained variations which can be displayed on a wall. One of the most important aspects of wall fountains is that they be light, so they are normally made of fiberglass or resin to mirror the look of stone. In large free-standing fountains, otherwise referred to as wall fountains, the basin is set on the ground with the flat side positioned against a wall. Normally made of cast stone, these water features have no weight constraints.

Landscape designers often recommend a customized fountain for a brand new or existing wall. The basin and all the necessary plumbing are best installed by a trained mason. It is also essential to include a spout or fountain mask to build it into the wall. The unified look provided by custom-made wall fountains make them appear to be part of the scenery rather than an afterthought.
