The Countless Options in Garden Wall Fountains

Placing a wall fountain in your yard or patio is ideal when you want to relax. You can also make use of a small area by having one custom-made. Whether it is stand alone or mounted, you will require a spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump. There are many different types available on the market including traditional, contemporary, classical, or Asian.

Normally quite big, freestanding wall fountains, also known as floor fountains, have their basins on the ground.

It is possible to integrate a wall-mounted water feature onto an already existing wall or built into a new wall. A unified look can be realized with this style of fountain because it seems to become part of the landscape rather than an added element.

Where did Large Outdoor Fountains Originate from?

Originally, fountains only served a practical purpose. Water fountains were linked to a spring or aqueduct to provide drinkable water as well as bathing water for cities, townships and villages. Until the late 19th, century most water fountains functioned using gravity to allow water to flow or jet into the air, therefore, they needed a source of water such as a reservoir or aqueduct located higher than the fountain. Designers thought of fountains as amazing additions to a living space, however, the fountains also served to supply clean water and celebrate the designer responsible for building it. Animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks were often used by Romans to decorate their fountains. To replicate the gardens of paradise, Muslim and Moorish garden planners of the Middle Ages added fountains to their designs. To demonstrate his prominence over nature, French King Louis XIV included fountains in the Garden of Versailles. To mark the entrance of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the building of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts entered the city of Rome

Since indoor plumbing became the norm of the day for clean, drinking water, by the end of the 19th century urban fountains were no longer needed for this purpose and they became purely decorative. The creation of special water effects and the recycling of water were two things made possible by swapping gravity with mechanical pumps.

Nowadays, fountains decorate public areas and are used to recognize individuals or events and fill recreational and entertainment needs.
