The Many Styles of Wall Fountains

You can find peace and quiet when you add a wall fountain in your garden or patio. You can have one made to fit your specifications even if you have a small amount of space. Both the stand alone and mounted types must have a spout, a water basin, internal tubing, and a pump. There are any number of different types available on the market including traditional, contemporary, classical, or Asian.

Usually quite large, freestanding wall fountains, also known as floor fountains, have their basins on the floor.

A stand-alone water feature can either be incorporated onto a wall already in existence or fitted into a wall under construction. This type of fountain contributes to a cohesive look making it seem as if it was part of the landscape rather than an added feature.

The Attraction of Simple Garden Decor: The Wall Water Fountain

Since garden water fountains are no longer dependent on a nearby pond, it is possible to install them close to a wall. In addition, it is no longer necessary to excavate, deal with a difficult installation procedure or tidy up the pond. Due to the fact that this feature is self-contained, no plumbing is needed. Adding water on a consistent} basis is necessary, however. Empty the water from the basin and add fresh water whenever the surrounding area is dirty.

Outdoor wall features come in many different materials, but they are normally made of stone and metal. You need to know the look you are shooting for in order to pick the best material. Garden wall fountains come in many shapes and sizes, therefore ensure that the style you choose to buy is hand-crafted, simple to hang and lightweight. Buying a water feature which requires little maintenance is important as well. The re-circulating pump and hanging hardware are usually the only parts which need extra care in most installations, although there may be some cases in which the installation is a bit more complicated. You can rest assured your garden can be easily enlivened by installing this type of fountain.Source Today's Wall Fountains 057862912369871468.jpg

The Source of Today's Wall Fountains

The translation of hundreds of ancient 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 objectives. In 1453 the Pope commissioned the repairing of the Aqua Vergine, an ancient Roman aqueduct which had carried fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away. Building a mostra, an imposing celebratory fountain built by ancient Romans to memorialize the entry point of an aqueduct, was a tradition revived by Nicholas V. The present-day site of the Trevi Fountain was previously occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and constructed by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. The aqueduct he had refurbished included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the famed baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
