The inclusion of a wall water feature or an outdoor garden fountain is a great way to embellish your yard or garden design. Many modern designers and craftsmen have been influenced by historical fountains and water features. As such, introducing one of these to your home design is a great way to connect it to the past. The advantage of having a garden fountain goes beyond its beauty as it also appeals to 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.
Wall fountains are a good choice if your yard is small because they do not need much space as compared to a spouting or cascading fountain. Either a freestanding fountain with an even back and an attached basin placed against a fence or a wall, or a wall-mounted style important site which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the possibilities from which you can choose. Both a fountain mask placed on the existing wall as well as a basin located at the bottom to collect the water are equired if you wish to add a fountain. Be sure to hire a professional for this type of job since it is better not to do it yourself due to the intricate plumbing and masonry work required.
