Water features such as these are typically made of cast stone and have no weight limitations.

The Positive Benefits of installing a Fountain in Your Living Space

A great way to enhance the appearance of your outdoor living area is to add a wall water feature or an exterior garden fountain to your landscaping or garden layout. Modern-day designers and fountain builders alike use historical fountains and water features to shape their creations. Therefore, in order to connect your home to previous times, add one these in your decor. Among the many properties of these beautiful garden fountains is the water and moisture they release into the air which attracts birds and other wild life as well as helps to balance the ecosystem. For example, birds attracted by a fountain or birdbath can be useful because they fend off bothersome flying insects.

Wall fountains are a good option if your yard is small because they do not require much space as compared to a spouting or cascading fountain. 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 variety which is suspended directly on a wall. Adding a fountain to an existent wall requires that you add a fountain mask as well as a basin at the base to gather the water. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this kind of job requires expertise, so it is best to employ a skilled person rather than do it yourself.
