The Outcome of the Norman Invasion on Anglo-Saxon Garden Design

The arrival of the Normans in the second half of the eleventh century irreparably transformed The Anglo-Saxon lifestyle. At the time of the conquest, the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons in building design and cultivation. But yet there was no time for home life, domesticated architecture, and decoration until the Normans had conquered the whole region. Castles were more basic constructions and often built on blustery hills, where their tenants devoted both time and space to practicing offense and defense, while monasteries were large stone buildings, regularly located in the widest, most fruitful hollows. The bare fortresses did not provide for the peaceful avocation of gardening. The finest specimen of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture existent today is Berkeley Castle. It is said that the keep was created during William the Conqueror's time. An enormous terrace encompasses the building, serving as an impediment to assailants trying to excavate under the castle walls. One of these terraces, a charming bowling green, is covered grass and flanked by an ancient yew hedge trimmed into the figure of crude battlements.

Themed fountains are perfect when the style of your garden allows for them. In a rustic themed bungalow or yard, a traditional styled statue for your fountain could include cherubs holding the spout. On the other hand, a more modern garden can include more of a bold design. Just permit your creativity to run loose.

Water streams down multiple levels in a tiered fountain. Due to the water moving down its various levels, these are also called cascading fountains.

Japanese fountains are believed to lend a feeling of tranquility and wellness. The water flows through bamboo sticks in this kind of water feature. The cycle of water falling into a rustic-styled bucket or a shaped stone repeats itself again and again.

Glass fountains make up an additional category of fountain. Featuring shaped metalwork, trellis-style fountains of this type have a more traditional aspect. Water features of this type are an excellent alternative for gardens with many sharp edges along with contemporary forms and design. A wondrous effect is produced when water flows down the sheets of glass. In some cases, the water is colored by LED lights as it flows down the glass panels. The jagged surface of rock waterfall fountain makes for an appealing fa├žade as the water softly flows downwards.

In a bubbling rock fountain, a big rock is drilled with openings and then filled in the center with pipes. The gurgles and bubbles at the top are the result of the low pressure used to trigger the water upwards. The water comes back gently trickling down the sides of the rock to get to its starting point. Small gardens are perfect for this type of fountain. The low pressure used in this sort of fountain inhibits water from being splashed about in case of a windy day.

The varied designs in outdoor solar-run fountains means you will not have to compromise on style.
