Your Outdoor Living Area: The Perfect Place for a Wall Fountain

The inclusion of a wall fountain or an outdoor garden fountain is a great way to adorn your yard or garden design. Many modern designers and artisans have been inspired by historical fountains and water features. You can also strengthen the connection to the past by including one of these to your home's interior design.Outdoor Living Area: Perfect Place Wall Fountain 1887905504746191.jpg 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, birds lured by a fountain or birdbath can be helpful because they fend off bothersome flying insects.

Spouting or cascading fountains are not the best choice for a small garden since they need a great deal of 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 hangs on a wall. Both a fountain mask located on the existing wall as well as a basin located at the bottom to collect the water are necessary if you wish to add a fountain. Since the plumbing and masonry work is substantial to complete this type of job, you should employ a specialist to do it rather than attempt to do it alone.

The Many Designs of Water Wall Fountains

Small verandas or courtyards are a perfect place to set up wall fountains because they add style to an area with limited space. 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 determine the type you buy so while there may not be a prefabricated fountain to suit you, you do have the option of having a customized one.

Depending on your needs, you can select from mounted or freestanding types. Small, self-contained models can be placed on a wall are called mounted wall fountains. Normally made of resin (to resemble stone) or fiber glass, these types of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. Floor fountains are freestanding, big, and also have a basin on the floor as well as a flat side against the wall.Many Designs Water Wall Fountains 293857962374234.jpg There are no weight restrictions on these sorts of cast stone water features.

Landscape designers often recommend a individualized fountain for a brand new or existing wall. The basin and all the necessary plumbing are best installed by a qualified mason. A fountain mask or a spout also needs to be incorporated into the wall. The cohesive look provided by custom-made wall fountains make them appear to be part of the scenery rather than an afterthought.
