The Many Types of Wall Fountains

Having a wall fountain in your garden or on a terrace is ideal when you seek to relax. You can have one made to fit your requirements even if you have a minimum amount of space. Whether it is stand alone or mounted, you will require a spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump. There are many different styles available on the market including traditional, contemporary, classical, or Asian.

Normally quite big, freestanding wall fountains, also referred to as floor fountains, have their basins on the floor.

You can decide to put your wall-mounted feature on an preexisting wall or build it into a new wall. The appearance of your landscape will seem more cohesive instead of disjointed when you put in this style of fountain.Source Today's Outdoor Fountains 14774576666905.jpg

The Source of Today's Outdoor Fountains

The translation of hundreds of classic Greek documents into Latin was commissioned by the scholarly Pope Nicholas V who led the Church in Rome from 1397 till 1455. Embellishing Rome and making it the worthy capital of the Christian world was at the core of his ambitions. In 1453 the Pope instigated the repairing of the Aqua Vergine, an ancient Roman aqueduct which had carried fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away. The historical Roman tradition of marking the entry point of an aqueduct with an magnificent celebratory fountain, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The architect Leon Battista Alberti was commissioned by the Pope to build a wall fountain where we now see the Trevi Fountain. The aqueduct he had reconditioned included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the renowned baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
