Wide Range Wall Fountains 076390034910305.jpg Placing a wall fountain in your backyard or patio is perfect when you want to unwind. You can have one made to suit your requirements even if you have a minimum amount of space. The required elements include a spout, a water basin, internal tubing, and a pump regardless of whether it is freestanding or secured. There are any variety of models to pick from such as traditional, contemporary, classic, or Asian.

Freestanding wall fountains, otherwise known as floor fountains, are relatively big and feature a basin on the ground.

On the other hand, a fountain attached to a wall can be incorporated onto an existing wall or built into a new wall. This style of fountain adds to a cohesive look making it seem as if it was part of the landscape rather than an added feature.

Where did Large Garden Fountains Originate from?

Large Garden Fountains Originate from? 207025070414862650.jpg A fountain, an incredible piece of engineering, not only supplies drinking water as it pours into a basin, it can also launch water high into the air for an extraordinary effect.

From the beginning, outdoor fountains were simply there to serve as functional elements. Inhabitants of urban areas, townships and small towns used them as a source of drinking water and a place to wash up, which meant that fountains needed to be connected to nearby aqueduct or spring. Used until the nineteenth century, in order for fountains to flow or shoot up into the air, their source of water such as reservoirs or aqueducts, had to be higher than the water fountain in order to benefit from gravity. Fountains were not only utilized as a water source for drinking water, but also to adorn homes and celebrate the artist who created it. Roman fountains often depicted imagery of animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks. Muslims and Moorish garden designers of the Middle Ages included fountains to re-create smaller versions of the gardens of paradise. Fountains played a considerable role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exercise his power over nature. The Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries were extolled with baroque style fountains built to mark the place of entry of Roman aqueducts.

Since indoor plumbing became the standard of the day for clean, drinking water, by the end of the 19th century urban fountains were no longer needed for this purpose and they became purely decorative. Amazing water effects and recycled water were made possible by switching the force of gravity with mechanical pumps.

Contemporary fountains are used to embellish community spaces, honor individuals or events, and enhance recreational and entertainment events.
