You can perfect your exterior space by including a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your property or gardening project. Any number of present-day designers and fountain craftsmen have found ideas in the fountains and water features of the past. You can also strengthen the connection to the past by adding one of these to your home’s interior design. In addition to the positive attributes of garden fountains, they also generate water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, drawing in birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. 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 choice for a small backyard since they occupy a great deal of space. Two possibilities 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. Adding a fountain to an existing wall requires that you add a fountain mask as well as a basin at the bottom to collect the water. Since the plumbing and masonry work is extensive to complete this type of job, you should hire a specialist to do it rather than attempt to do it alone.
