Wide Array Styles Water Wall Fountains 5263022424901249.jpg Small verandas or courtyards are an ideal place to install wall fountains because they add style to an area with little space. Whatever style of outdoor wall fountain you are looking for whether it be traditional, contemporary, classic, or Asian you will certainly find the one you like best. If you are looking for a unique design, a customized one can be specially made to meet your specifications.

The two kinds of fountains available to you include mounted and freestanding models. You can place a mounted wall fountain because they are small and self-contained. Typically made of resin (to resemble stone) or fiber glass, these types of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. Large-sized free-standing wall fountains, commonly referred to as floor fountains, have their basins located on the floor and a flat side leaning on a wall. Generally constructed of cast stone, this kind of water feature is not limited in weight.

It is a good idea to integrate a custom-made fountain into a new or existing wall, something often suggested by landscape experts. Hiring an expert mason is your best option to construct the basin and install the necessary plumbing. It is also necessary to add a spout or fountain mask to build it into the wall. Custom-built wall fountains add to a unified look because they become part of the scenery rather than look like a later addition.

Taking Care Of Outdoor Water fountains

A very important first step is to consider the size of the outdoor wall fountain with regards to the area you have available for it.

Most outdoor wall fountains are available in easy-to-use kits that will give you everything you need to properly install it. The kit includes a submersible pump, hoses as well as the basin, or reservoir. If the size is appropriate, the basin can be concealed among your garden plants. Other than the regular cleaning, little servicing is required once your outdoor wall fountain is installed.

Replenishing and cleaning the water on a regular basis is very important. It is important to promptly get rid of debris such as leaves, twigs or other dreck. In addition, your outdoor wall fountain should not be exposed to freezing winter weather. Your pump may crack when subjected to freezing water during the wintertime, so it is best to bring it indoors to prevent any damage. Simply put, your outdoor fountain will be a part of your life for many years to come with the proper care and maintenance.
