The Source of Today's Garden Water 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 until 1455. It was important for him to beautify the city of Rome to make it worthy of being known as the capital of the Christian world. At the behest of the Pope, the Aqua Vergine, a ruined aqueduct which had transported clean drinking water into Rome from eight miles away, was renovated starting in 1453. A mostra, a monumental dedicatory fountain constructed by ancient Romans to mark the point of arrival of an aqueduct, was a tradition which was restored by Nicholas V. The present-day location of the Trevi Fountain was once occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and built by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. 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.Small Garden Space?

A Small Garden Space? You Can Have a Water Feature too!

Since water is reflective, it has the effect of making a small spot appear bigger than it is. Augmenting the reflective attributes of a fountain or water feature are possible by using dark materials. If your purpose is to showcase your new feature at night, underwater lights in varied colors and shapes will do the trick. Solar powered eco-lights are excellent during the day and underwater lights are perfect for nighttime use. Alleviating stress and anxiety with their calming sounds are some of the uses in nature medicine.

The greenery in your backyard is the perfect place to situate your water feature. People will be focused on the pond, artificial river or fountain in your garden. The flexibility of water features is that they can be set up in large backyards as well as in small verandas. Considerably modifying the ambience is possible by locating it in the most suitable place and include the finest accompaniments.
