Your Garden: A Great Spot for a Wall Fountain

You can improve your exterior space by adding a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your property or gardening project. Any number of current designers and fountain artisans have found ideas in the fountains and water features of the past. As such, introducing one of these to your home design is a great way to connect it to the past. The benefit of having a garden fountain goes beyond its beauty as it also attracts birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it releases into the atmosphere. For instance, irksome flying insects are usually discouraged by the birds drawn to the fountain or birdbath.

The space required for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the ideal size for a small yard.Garden: Great Spot Wall Fountain 076390034910305.jpg You can choose to set up a stand-alone fountain with a flat back and an attached basin propped against a fence or wall in your backyard, or a wall-mounted type which is self-contained and hung from a wall. Adding a fountain to an existent wall requires that you include a fountain mask as well as a basin at the bottom to collect the water. Be sure to work with a specialist for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work required.Multiple Types Wall Fountains 207025070414862650.jpg

The Multiple Types of Wall Fountains

You can find tranquility and silence when you add a wall fountain in your garden or patio. You can have one made to suit your requirements even if you have a small amount of space. Whether it is stand alone or mounted, you will need a spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump. There are many different varieties available on the market including traditional, fashionable, classical, or Asian.

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

You can decide to put your wall-mounted feature on an preexisting wall or build it into a new wall. Incorporating this kind of water feature into your landscape adds a cohesiveness to the look you want to achieve rather than making it seem as if the fountain was merely added later.
