The Positive Benefits of Adding a garden fountain in Your Living Area

A great way to enhance the look of your outdoor living area is to add a wall water feature or an exterior garden fountain to your landscaping or garden design. Contemporary designers and fountain builders alike use historic fountains and water features to shape their creations. As such, integrating one of these to your home design is a superb way to connect it to the past. In addition to the wonderful characteristics of garden fountains, they also produce water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, drawing in birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. Flying, irritating insects, for instance, are scared away by the birds congregating around the fountain or birdbath.

The space necessary for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the ideal 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. Make certain to include a fountain mask to an existing wall and a basin to collect the water at the base if you wish to put in a fountain to your living area. Be sure to employ a specialist for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work needed.

The Use of Outdoor Garden Fountains As Water Features

A water feature is a big element which has water streaming in or through it. The broad range of choices available vary from a simple hanging wall fountain to an elaborate courtyard tiered fountain. Known for their versatility, they can be utilized either indoors or outside. Ponds and pools are also thought of as water features.

An outdoor wall fountain can be a useful water feature to include in any yard, yoga studio, patio, balcony, or workplace. The pleasant sounds of trickling water from this kind of feature please the senses of sight and hearing of anyone closeby. With their visibly pleasing shape you can also use them to accentuate the style in your home or other living space. Gently moving water not only results in a feeling of peace, it also masks irksome noises and produces a captivating water show.Source Modern Garden Fountains 75800617194.jpg

The Source of Modern Garden Fountains

Pope Nicholas V, himself a learned man, ruled the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of ancient classical Greek texts into Latin. In order to make Rome worthy of being the capital of the Christian world, the Pope decided to enhance the beauty of the city. In 1453 the Pope instigated the rebuilding of the Aqua Vergine, an historic Roman aqueduct which had carried clean drinking water into the city from eight miles away. The ancient Roman custom of marking the arrival point of an aqueduct with an magnificent celebratory fountain, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The architect Leon Battista Alberti was commissioned by the Pope to put up a wall fountain where we now find the Trevi Fountain. The aqueduct he had refurbished included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the renowned baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
