Pick from Countless Exterior Wall Fountain Styles

If you want to create a place to relax and add some pizzazz to a small area such as a patio or courtyard, wall fountains are perfect because they do not take up much space.Pick Countless Exterior Wall Fountain Styles 207025070414862650.jpg The myriad of designs in outdoor wall fountains, including traditional, classic, contemporary, or Asian, means that you can find the one suitable to your tastes. It is possible to have one custom-made if you are unable to find a pre-assembled fountain to suit you.

The two types of water features available to you include mounted and stand-alone models. You can install a mounted wall fountain because they are little and self-contained. Wall fountains made of resin ( similar to stone) or fiberglass are normally light so they can be easily hung. Floor fountains are freestanding, sizable, and also have a basin on the ground as well as a flat side against the wall. Water features such as these are usually made of cast stone and have no weight limitations.

Landscape designers often propose a custom-built fountain for a brand new or existing wall. Installing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work needs a expert mason to do it properly. You will need to incorporate a spout or fountain mask into the wall. The unified look produced by customized wall fountains make them appear to be part of the landscape instead of an afterthought.

The Myriad Reasons to Add a Fountain

A great way to enhance the look of your outdoor living area is to add a wall fountain or an exterior garden fountain to your landscaping or garden layout. A myriad of current designers and fountain craftsmen have found inspiration in the fountains and water features of the past. As such, the effect of integrating one of these to your interior decor connects it to past times. The benefit of having a garden fountain extends beyond its beauty as it also appeals to birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it emits into the atmosphere. For example, birds attracted by a fountain or birdbath can be helpful because they fend off bothersome flying insects.Myriad Reasons Add Fountain 14774576666905.jpg

The area necessary for a cascading or spouting fountain is considerable, so a wall fountain is the perfect size for a small yard. You can choose to put in 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 suspended from a wall. Both a fountain mask placed on the existing wall as well as a basin located at the bottom to collect the water are equired if you wish to add a fountain. It is best not to attempt this job on your own as skilled plumbers and masons are best suited to do this type of work.
