Many Good Reasons Add Wall Fountain 450508758076360.jpg You can perfect your outdoor area by including a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your property or gardening project. Historical fountains and water features have sparked the interest of modern-day designers as well as fountain designers. As such, introducing one of these to your home design is a superb way to connect it to the past. Among the many properties of these beautiful garden water features is the water and moisture they discharge into the air which attracts birds and other wild life as well as helps to balance the ecosystem. For example, birds lured by a fountain or birdbath can be useful because they fend off annoying flying insects.

The space required for a cascading or spouting fountain is considerable, so a wall fountain is the perfect size for a small yard. Two options to pick from include either a freestanding type with an even back set against a fence or wall in your garden, 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 equired if you wish to add a fountain. It is best not to undertake this job on your own as skilled plumbers and masons are more suitable to do this kind of work.Setting Maintaining Landscape Fountains 4069865111965.jpg

Setting Up and Maintaining Landscape Fountains

A very important first step is to consider the size of the outdoor wall fountain with regards to the space you have available for it. In order to support its total weight, a solid wall is required. Also keep in mind that smaller areas or walls will need to have a lightweight fountain. An electrical socket close to the fountain is required to power the fountain. Since there are many types of outdoor wall fountains, installation procedures vary, but the majority include user-friendly 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. The kit provides a submersible pump, hoses as well as the basin, or reservoir. The basin, if it's not too large, can easily be concealedin your garden among the plants. Once your wall fountain is installed, all that is required is regular cleaning and some light maintenance.

It is necessary to replenish the water routinely so that it remains clean. Debris such as branches, leaves or dirt should be cleared away quickly. Ensure that your outdoor wall fountain is protected from freezing winter temperatures. Your pump may crack when exposed to freezing water during the wintertime, so it is best to bring it indoors to prevent any damage. To sum up, your outdoor wall fountain will continue to be an amazing add-on to your garden if you keep it well looked after and well maintained.
