The Myriad Designs of Wall Fountains

Wall fountains are well suited to little patios or gardens because they do not require too much space while also adding a bit of style and providing a great place to find peace and quiet. Whatever style of outdoor wall fountain you are looking for whether it be traditional, contemporary, classic, or Asian you will undoubtedly find the one you like most. While there are innumerable prefabricated ones on the market, you may need a customized fountain if none of these are pleasing to you.

Mounted and free-standing water features are readily available on the market.Myriad Designs Wall Fountains 057862912369871468.jpg Little, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be installed on any surface. One of the most important features of wall fountains is that they be lightweight, so they are normally made of fiberglass or resin to replicate the look of stone. In large free-standing fountains, otherwise referred to as wall fountains, the basin is located on the ground with the smooth side positioned against a wall. Normally made of cast stone, these water features have no weight restrictions.

It is a good idea to integrate a customized fountain into a new or existing wall, something often suggested by landscape experts. The basin and all the necessary plumbing are best installed by a qualified mason. The wall will need to have a spout or fountain mask incorporated into it. A tailor-made wall fountain blends into the landscape instead of standing out because it was a later addition, which contributes to a cohesive appearance.

What Are Wall fountains Crafted From?

While today’s garden fountains are made in a range of materials, most are made from metal. Metals tend to yield clean lines and unique sculptural accents and can fit almost any design theme or budget.Wall fountains Crafted From? 75800617194.jpg The interior design of your home should set the look and feel of your yard and garden as well.

A prevalent choice today is copper, and it is used in the designing of many sculptural garden fountains. Copper is appropriate for many fountain styles, including tabletop and cascade water fountains, and can be put either inside or outside - making it a great option. If you opt to go with copper, your fountain can be any style from fun and whimsical to contemporary.

Also common, brass fountains generally have a more old-fashioned style to them versus their copper counterpart. Although it is not the most stylish, the creatures and sculptural features you find on fountains are commonly made of brass, thus making them very popular.

The most contemporary metal right now is perhaps stainless steel. If you pick a cutting-edge steel design, both the value and tranquility of your garden will get a nice boost. Like all water fountains, you can buy them in just about any size you want.

For people who want the appearance of a metal fountain but prefer a lighter weight and more affordable option, fiberglass is the answer. The maintenance of fiberglass water fountains is quite simple, so they have many advantages that people appreciate.
