Anglo Saxon Gardens at the Time of the Norman Conquest

The introduction of the Normans in the 2nd half of the eleventh century irreparably improved The Anglo-Saxon lifestyle. The Normans were better than the Anglo-Saxons at architecture and horticulture when they came into power. But before centering on home-life or having the occasion to contemplate domestic architecture or decoration, the Normans had to subjugate an entire population. Most often built upon windy summits, castles were fundamental structures that permitted their occupants to devote time and space to offensive and defensive strategies, while monasteries were rambling stone buildings commonly installed in only the most fecund, broad valleys. The tranquil practice of gardening was unlikely in these dreary bastions. Berkeley Castle, perhaps the most pristine style of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture, still exists now. The keep is reported to have been developed during the time of William the Conqueror. As a strategy of deterring assailants from tunneling within the walls, an immense terrace encompasses the building. On one of these parapets is a picturesque bowling green covered in grass and bordered by an aged hedge of yew that has been designed into coarse battlements.

Installation of a Garden Fountain In Smaller Yards

The reflective properties of water means it can make smaller spaces look larger than they are. Augmenting the reflective aspects of a fountain or water feature are possible by using dark materials.Installation Garden Fountain Smaller Yards 207025070414862650.jpg If your intention is to highlight 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 submerged lights are perfect for nighttime use. Alleviating stress and anxiety with their calming sounds are some of the applications in nature medicine.

The greenery in your backyard is the perfect place to place your water feature. Your pond, man-made river, or fountain is the perfect feature to draw people’s attention. The flexibility of water features is that they can be set up in large backyards as well as in small verandas. Considerably improving the ambience is possible by locating it in the most suitable place and include the finest accompaniments.

The Many Reasons to Add a Fountain

The area outside your home can be enhanced by adding a wall or a garden fountain to your landscaping or garden project. Modern-day artists and fountain builders alike use historic fountains and water features to shape their creations. As such, the effect of integrating one of these to your home decor connects it to past times. The benefit of having a garden fountain goes beyond its beauty as it also appeals to birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it releases into the atmosphere. Flying, bothersome insects, for instance, are scared away by the birds congregating around the fountain or birdbath.

Spouting or cascading fountains are not the best option for a small yard since they require a great deal of space. Either a stand-alone fountain with an even back and an attached basin placed against a fence or a wall, or a wall-mounted kind which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the options from which you can choose.Many Reasons Add Fountain 75800617194.jpg 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 include a fountain. It is best not to attempt this job yourself as professional plumbers and masons are more suitable to do this type of work.
