The Many Styles of Wall Fountains

Many Styles Wall Fountains 5262214251.jpg Small verandas or courtyards are a perfect place to set up wall fountains since they add style to an area with limited space. The myriad of designs in outdoor wall fountains, including traditional, classic, contemporary, or Asian, means that you can find the one suitable to your wishes. It is possible to have one customized if you are unable to find a prefabricated fountain to suit you.

Depending on your wishes, you can select from mounted or freestanding types. Little, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be hung on any surface. Fountains of this type need to be light, therefore, they are usually fabricated from resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass. Floor fountains are freestanding, big, and also have a basin on the ground as well as a flat side against the wall. Generally constructed of cast stone, this kind of water feature is not restricted in weight.

It is a good idea to incorporate a custom-made fountain into a new or existing wall, something often recommended by landscape experts. A professional mason is necessary to place the water basin against the wall and correctly install all the plumbing inside or behind the wall. A fountain mask or a spout also needs to be integrated 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.

The Myriad Reasons to Include a Wall Fountain

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 design. Historical fountains and water features have stirred the notice of contemporary designers as well as fountain manufacturers. You can also reinforce the connection to the past by adding one of these to your home's interior design. In addition to the positive attributes of garden fountains, they also produce water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, drawing in birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. For example, birds lured by a fountain or birdbath can be helpful because they fend off irritating flying insects.

The area required for a cascading or spouting fountain is considerable, so a wall fountain is the ideal size for a small yard.Myriad Reasons Include Wall Fountain 0239755426185127.jpg There are two types of fountains to pick 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.

Be sure to hire a specialist for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work needed.
