The Many Good Reasons to Include a Water Feature

The inclusion of a wall fountain or an outdoor garden fountain is a great way to embellish your yard or garden design.

Wall fountains are a good alternative if your yard is small because they do not require much space in contrast to a spouting or cascading fountain. Either a freestanding fountain with an even back and an attached basin placed against a fence or a wall, or a wall-mounted kind which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the options from which you can choose. Be sure to include a fountain mask to an existing wall and a basin to collect the water at the bottom if you want to put in a fountain to your living area. 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.

Ordinarily made of resin (to look like stone) or fiber glass, these sorts of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. In large stand-alone fountains, otherwise known as wall fountains, the basin is located on the ground with the flat side positioned against a wall. Normally made of cast stone, these water features have no weight restrictions.

Custom-made fountains which can be incorporated into a new or existing wall are often prescribed by landscaping designers. Hiring an expert mason is your best option to build the basin and install the necessary plumbing. A fountain mask or a spout also needs to be incorporated into the wall. The unified look produced by custom-made wall fountains make them appear to be part of the landscape instead of an afterthought.
