The Myriad Reasons to Include a Fountain

You can perfect your exterior space by including a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your yard or gardening project. Historical fountains and water features have sparked the interest of contemporary designers as well as fountain designers.Myriad Reasons Include Fountain 207025070414862650.jpg As such, integrating one of these to your interior is a great way to connect it to the past. The advantage of having a garden fountain extends beyond its beauty as it also attracts birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it emits into the atmosphere. For example, irritating flying insects are usually deterred by the birds drawn to the fountain or birdbath.

Putting in a wall water feature is your best solution for a little backyard because a spouting or cascading fountain takes up too much 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 style which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the options from which you can choose. Both a fountain mask located 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. Since the plumbing and masonry work is extensive to complete this type of job, you should hire a specialist to do it rather than try to do it alone.

Modern Garden Decoration: Fountains and their Roots

The dramatic or decorative effect of a fountain is just one of the purposes it fulfills, as well as supplying drinking water and adding a decorative touch to your property.Modern Garden Decoration: Fountains Roots 75800617194.jpg

Originally, fountains only served a functional purpose. Inhabitants of cities, townships and small towns used them as a source of drinking water and a place to wash up, which meant that fountains needed to be connected to nearby aqueduct or spring. Up to the late nineteenth century, water fountains had to be near an aqueduct or reservoir and more elevated than the fountain so that gravity could make the water flow downwards or shoot high into the air. Designers thought of fountains as wonderful additions to a living space, however, the fountains also served to provide clean water and honor the artist responsible for creating it. Roman fountains often depicted imagery of animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks. To replicate the gardens of paradise, Muslim and Moorish garden planners of the Middle Ages added fountains to their designs. Fountains played a significant role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exert his power over nature. Seventeen and 18 century Popes sought to exalt their positions by adding decorative baroque-style fountains at the point where restored Roman aqueducts arrived into the city.

The end of the nineteenth century saw the rise in usage of indoor plumbing to provide drinking water, so urban fountains were relegated to strictly decorative elements. Gravity was replaced by mechanical pumps in order to permit fountains to bring in clean water and allow for beautiful water displays.

Modern fountains are used to adorn community spaces, honor individuals or events, and enhance recreational and entertainment events.
