Your preferences dictate the type you buy so while there may not be a prefabricated fountain to suit you, you do have the option of having a custom made one.

Depending on your wishes, you can select from mounted or freestanding models. Small, self-contained models can be hung on a wall are known as mounted wall fountains. Ordinarily made of resin (to resemble stone) or fiber glass, these sorts of fountains are lightweight and easy to hang. Sizable free-standing wall fountains, commonly referred to as floor fountains, have their basins positioned on the floor and a smooth side leaning on a wall. Typically made of cast stone, this type of water feature is not limited in weight.

It is a good idea to integrate a customized fountain into a new or existing wall, something often suggested by landscape experts. The basin and all the required plumbing are best installed by a trained mason. The wall will need to have a spout or fountain mask built into it. A custom-made wall fountain blends into the landscape instead of standing out because it was a later addition, which contributes to a cohesive appearance.

Wall fountains are a good alternative if your yard is small because they do not need much space as compared to a spouting or cascading fountain. There are two types of fountains to pick from including the freestanding model 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 hung directly on a wall. Both a fountain mask located on the existing wall as well as a basin located at the bottom to collect the water are necessary if you wish to include a fountain. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this kind of work requires expertise, so it is best to hire a skilled person rather than go at it yourself.
