The Myriad Styles of Wall Water Fountains

If you want to have a place to relax as well as add some pizzazz to a small area such as a patio or courtyard, wall fountains are ideal because they do not occupy much space. When looking at the many types of outdoor wall fountains available including traditional, vintage, contemporary, or Asian, you are certain to find one most suitable to your design ideas. While there are innumerable prefabricated ones on the market, you may need a customized fountain if none of these are pleasing to you.

There are two distinct styles of fountains you can buy: mounted and free-standing. You can place a mounted wall fountain because they are small and self-contained. Fountains of this type need to be light, therefore, they are usually made of resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass. In large stand-alone fountains, otherwise referred to as wall fountains, the basin is located on the ground with the flat side positioned against a wall. Typically constructed of cast stone, this style of water feature is not restricted in weight.

Landscape designers often recommend a customized fountain for a brand new or existing wall. Installing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work requires a professional mason to do it correctly. You will need to incorporate a spout or fountain mask 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.Indoor Wall Water Features Can Help 61928861915281762.jpg
