Any number of present-day designers and fountain craftsmen have found inspiration in the fountains and water features of the past.

Spouting or cascading fountains are not the best alternative for a small yard since they occupy a great deal of space. There are two types of fountains to choose from including the freestanding version with a flat back and an attached basin set up against a fence or a wall in your yard, or the wall-mounted, self-contained version which is suspended directly 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. Be sure to hire a professional for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work required.
