Setting Up and Maintaining Large Outdoor Fountains

Setting up an outdoor wall fountain requires that you take into account the dimensions of the space where you are going to place it. A solid wall is absolutely needed to hold up its total weight. Areas or walls that are small will call for a lightweight fountain. In order for the fountain to have power, a nearby electrical outlet is needed. Whatever the style of outdoor wall fountain you buy, they generally come with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions.

Most outside wall fountains come in "for-dummies" style kits that will provide you everything you need to properly install it. A submersible pump, hoses and basin, or reservoir, are provided in the kit. If the size is appropriate, the basin can be hidden away amongst your garden plants. Other than the regular cleaning, little servicing is required once your outdoor wall fountain is fitted.

It is essential to replenish the water consistently so that it remains clean. Leaves, branches or dirt are examples of debris which should be cleared away quickly. Safeguarding your outdoor wall fountain from the cold winter weather is essential. Your pump may break when subjected to freezing water during the winter, so it is best to bring it indoors to prevent any damage.

To sum up, your outdoor wall fountain will continue to be an amazing add-on to your garden if you keep it well cared for and well maintained.

A Wall Fountain to Suit Your Decor

You can find peace and quiet when you add a wall fountain in your garden or patio. Even a small space can include a customized one. Whether it is stand alone or mounted, you will need a spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump. There are many different styles available on the market including traditional, contemporary, classical, or Asian.

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

It is possible to integrate a wall-mounted fountain onto an already existent wall or built into a new wall. The appearance of your landscape will seem more unified instead of disjointed when you put in this kind of water feature.

Where did Garden Water Fountains Originate from?

A water fountain is an architectural piece that pours water into a basin or jets it high into the air in order to provide drinkable water, as well as for decorative purposes.

Pure practicality was the original purpose of fountains. Cities, towns and villages made use of nearby aqueducts or springs to supply them with drinking water as well as water where they could bathe or wash. Up until the 19th century, fountains had to be more elevated and closer to a water source, including aqueducts and reservoirs, in order to take advantage of gravity which fed the fountains. Fountains were an excellent source of water, and also served to adorn living areas and celebrate the designer. Roman fountains often depicted images 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 introduced fountains to their designs. Fountains enjoyed a significant role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exert his power over nature. The Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries were glorified with baroque style fountains made to mark the place of entry of Roman aqueducts.

The end of the nineteenth century saw the rise in usage of indoor plumbing to supply drinking water, so urban fountains were relegated to purely decorative elements. Impressive water effects and recycled water were made possible by replacing the force of gravity with mechanical pumps.

Beautifying city parks, honoring people or events and entertaining, are some of the functions of modern-day fountains.
