The Influence of the Norman Conquest on Anglo Saxon Landscaping

The Anglo-Saxon way of life was significantly changed by the appearance of the Normans in the later eleventh century. At the time of the conquest, the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons in building design and cultivation. But home life, household architecture, and decoration were out of the question until the Normans taken over the general populace. Castles were more standard designs and often built on blustery hills, where their people devoted both time and space to exercising offense and defense, while monasteries were considerable stone buildings, mostly located in the widest, most fertile hollows. Peaceful pastimes such as gardening were out of place in these destitute citadels. Berkeley Castle, maybe the most pristine style of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture, still exists now. It is said that the keep was created during William the Conqueror's time. As a method of deterring assailants from tunneling under the walls, an immense terrace encircles the building. On one of these terraces sits a stylish bowling green: it is coated in grass and flanked by an old yew hedge that is formed into the shape of rough ramparts.

The Multiple Kinds of Wall Water Fountains

Having a wall fountain in your garden or on a veranda is ideal when you wish 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 fitted, you will require a spout, a water bowl, internal piping, and a pump. Traditional, modern, antique, and Asian are just a few of the styles from which you can choose.

Freestanding wall fountains, otherwise known as floor fountains, are relatively big and feature a basin on the ground.Multiple Kinds Wall Water Fountains 057862912369871468.jpg

It is possible to integrate a wall-mounted water feature onto an already existent wall or built into a new wall. A unified look can be realized with this style of water feature because it seems to become part of the landscape rather than an added element.
