If you want to create a place to relax as well as add some flair to a small area such as a patio or courtyard, wall fountains are ideal because they do not take up much space. Conventional, antique, contemporary, or Asian are just some of the designs you can pick from when looking for an outdoor wall fountain to your liking. While there are innumerable prefabricated ones on the market, you may need a custom-built fountain if none of these are appealing to you.

There are two specific styles of fountains you can buy: mounted and free-standing. Small, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be hung on any surface. Wall fountains made of resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass are typically light so they can be easily hung. Free-standing fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, are of considerable size, have a basin located on the ground and a smooth side which leans against a wall. There are no weight restrictions on these kinds of cast stone water features.

Custom-built fountains which can be integrated into a new or existing wall are often recommended by landscaping designers. Hiring an expert mason is your best option to build the basin and install the required plumbing. You will need to integrate a spout or fountain mask into the wall. The unified look produced by customized wall fountains make them appear to be part of the scenery rather than an afterthought.Outdoor Garden Fountain: Upkeep & Routine Service 43180876.jpg

An important facet to consider is the size of the outdoor wall fountain in relation to the space in which you are going to install it. It will need a strong wall to support its overall weight. Therefore for smaller areas or walls, a more lightweight feature is going to be more suitable. In order to operate the fountain, an electrical plug will need to be close by. Since there are many types of outdoor wall fountains, installation procedures vary, however the majority include easy to follow instructions.

The typical 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 includes a submersible pump, hoses as well as the basin, or reservoir. Depending on its size, the basin can typically be hidden quite easily amongst the plants. Other than the regular cleaning, little upkeep is required once your outdoor wall fountain is installed.

It is vital to replenish the water regularly so that it remains clean. Leaves, branches or dirt are examples of rubbish which should be cleared away quickly. In addition, your outdoor wall fountain should not be subjected to freezing winter temperatures. In order to avoid any damage, such as cracking, from freezing water during the cold winter months, move your pump inside. All in all, an outdoor wall fountain can last for any number of years with the right maintenance and cleaning.
