The Innumerable Choices in Garden Wall Fountains

Placing a wall fountain in your yard or patio is perfect when you want to relax.Innumerable Choices Garden Wall Fountains 2479072229404673.jpg Additionally, it can be designed to fit into any wall space since it does not occupy much room. A spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump are necessary for freestanding as well as mounted styles. Traditional, modern, classic, and Asian are just a few of the styles from which you can choose.

Normally quite big, freestanding wall fountains, also referred to as floor fountains, have their basins on the ground.

On the other hand, a water feature attached to a wall can be incorporated onto an existing wall or built into a new wall. This type of fountain adds to a cohesive look making it appear as if it was part of the landscape rather than an added feature.Fountains Begin? 2479072229404673.jpg

Where did Fountains Begin?

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.

From the onset, outdoor fountains were simply meant to serve as functional elements. People in cities, towns and villages received their drinking water, as well as water to bathe and wash, from aqueducts or springs nearby. Used until the nineteenth century, in order for fountains to flow or shoot up into the air, their origin of water such as reservoirs or aqueducts, had to be higher than the water fountain in order to benefit from gravity. Fountains were an optimal source of water, and also served to adorn living areas and celebrate the artist. Bronze or stone masks of animals and heroes were commonly seen on Roman fountains. During the Middle Ages, Muslim and Moorish garden designers included fountains in their designs to mimic the gardens of paradise. King Louis XIV of France wanted to demonstrate his superiority over nature by including fountains in the Gardens of Versailles. Seventeen and 18 century Popes sought to extol their positions by including beautiful baroque-style fountains at the point where restored Roman aqueducts arrived into the city.

Indoor plumbing became the main source of water by the end of the 19th century thereby limiting urban fountains to mere decorative elements. Fountains using mechanical pumps instead of gravity helped fountains to bring recycled water into living spaces as well as create unique water effects.

Modern-day fountains serve mostly as decoration for public spaces, to honor individuals or events, and compliment entertainment and recreational events.
