The Many Construction Materials of Garden Fountains

Most modern garden fountains come in metal, although many other types exist. Metallic fountains, with their clean lines and sculptural accents, come in in a variety of metals and can accommodate any style or budget. If you have a modern look and feel to your interior design, your yard and garden should mirror that same look.

One of the most popular metals for sculptural garden fountains presently is copper. Copper is trendy for both inside and outside use and is commonly found in tabletop and cascade fountains, among others. Copper is also flexible enough that you can pick a range of styles for your fountain, from contemporary to whimsical.

Brass water fountains are also common, although they tend to have a more traditional look than copper ones. Even though they are a bit old-fashioned, brass fountains are quite common because they often include interesting artwork.

Arguably the most modern of all metals is stainless steel.Many Construction Materials Garden Fountains 076390034910305.jpg If you pick a cutting-edge steel design, both the value and tranquility of your garden will get a nice lift. As with most fountains, they are available in numerous sizes.

Fiberglass is a common material for fountains because you can get the look and feel of metal at a much lower price, and it is lighter and easier to move than metal. Caring for a fiberglass water fountain is relatively easy, another benefit that consumers like.

Installation and Maintenance of Landscape Fountains

A very important first step is to think about the size of the outdoor wall fountain with regards to the space you have available for it. In order to hold up its total weight, a solid wall is needed. Also keep in mind that smaller areas or walls will require a lightweight fountain. An electrical socket close to the fountain is needed to power the fountain. Since there are many types of outdoor wall fountains, installation procedures vary, but the majority include user-friendly instructions.

Most outdoor wall fountains are available in easy-to-use kits that will provide you everything you need to properly install it. The kit contains a submersible pump, hoses as well as the basin, or reservoir. The basin can typically be concealed among your garden plants if it is not too big. Other than the regular cleaning, little servicing is required once your outdoor wall fountain is installed.

Replenish and clean the water on a regular basis. Leaves, branches or dirt are types of debris which should be cleared away quickly.Installation Maintenance Landscape Fountains 207025070414862650.jpg Extremely cold temperatures can damage your outdoor wall fountain so be sure to protect it during the winter months. In order to avoid any damage, such as cracking, from freezing water during the cold winter season, relocate your pump indoors. All in all, an outdoor wall fountain can last for any number of years with the right servicing and care.

The Positive Benefits of Adding a Water Feature in Your Living Space

You can perfect your exterior space by including a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your property or gardening project. Modern-day designers and fountain builders alike use historic fountains and water features to shape their creations. As such, the effect of adding one of these to your home decor bridges it to past times. The benefit of having a garden fountain goes 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, irksome flying insects are usually discouraged 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. Two options to pick from include either a freestanding type with an even back set against a fence or wall in your garden, or a wall-mounted, self-contained type which is suspended on a wall.Positive Benefits Adding Water Feature Living Space 207025070414862650.jpg Be sure to include a fountain mask to an existing wall and a basin to collect the water at the base if you want to put in a fountain to your living area. Since the plumbing and masonry work is extensive to complete this type of job, you should hire a professional to do it rather than try to do it alone.
