The Wide Range of Outdoor Wall Water Fountains

A small patio or a courtyard is a great place to situate your wall fountain when you need peace and quiet. You can have one made to suit your requirements even if you have a minimum amount of space. Both the stand alone and fitted types must have a spout, a water basin, internal tubing, and a pump. There are many different styles available on the market including traditional, contemporary, classical, or Asian.

The Wide Array of Styles of Wall Water Fountains

If you want to create a place to relax as well as add some flair to a small area such as a patio or courtyard, wall fountains are perfect because they do not occupy much space. Traditional, antique, contemporary, or Asian are just a few of the designs you can choose from when looking for an outdoor wall fountain to your liking. While there are countless prefabricated ones on the market, you may need a custom-built fountain if none of these are appealing to you.

There are two specific sorts of fountains you can buy: mounted and free-standing. Little, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be hung on any surface. Wall fountains made of resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass are typically light so they can be easily hung. In large stand-alone fountains, otherwise known as wall fountains, the basin is situated on the ground with the smooth side positioned against a wall. Water features such as these are typically manufactured of cast stone and have no weight limits.

Custom-built fountains which can be incorporated into a new or existing wall are often recommended by landscaping designers. A expert mason is necessary to install the water basin against the wall and properly install all the plumbing inside or behind the wall. The wall will have to have a spout or fountain mask incorporated into it. The cohesive look produced by custom-made wall fountains make them appear to be part of the landscape instead of an afterthought.

Anglo Saxon Grounds at the Time of the Norman Conquest

The arrival of the Normans in the 2nd half of the 11th century irreparably improved The Anglo-Saxon lifestyle.Anglo Saxon Grounds Time Norman Conquest 5570654363737605.jpg At the time of the conquest, the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons in building design and cultivation. But there was no time for home life, domestic design, and decoration until the Normans had overcome the whole realm. Because of this, castles were cruder buildings than monasteries: Monasteries were usually immense stone buildings set in the biggest and most fertile valleys, while castles were constructed on windy crests where their citizens dedicated time and space to projects for offense and defense. The calm practice of gardening was impractical in these bleak bastions. The purest specimen of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture existent presently is Berkeley Castle. The keep is thought to date from the time of William the Conqueror. A massive terrace serves as a hindrance to invaders who would attempt to mine the walls of the building. On 1 of these terraces sits a stylish bowling green: it's covered in grass and flanked by an old yew hedge that is formed into the shape of rough ramparts.Genesis Outdoor Fountains 0298631824798035687.jpg

The Genesis Of Outdoor Fountains

The incredible construction of a fountain allows it to provide clean water or shoot water high into air for dramatic effect and it can also serve as an excellent design feature to complete your home.

Originally, fountains only served a functional purpose. Cities, towns and villages made use of nearby aqueducts or springs to provide them with potable water as well as water where they could bathe or wash. Used until the 19th century, in order for fountains to flow or shoot up into the air, their origin of water such as reservoirs or aqueducts, had to be higher than the water fountain in order to benefit from the power of gravity. Artists thought of fountains as amazing additions to a living space, however, the fountains also served to provide clean water and honor the designer responsible for building it. Animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks were often used by Romans to decorate their fountains. Muslims and Moorish garden designers of the Middle Ages included fountains to re-create smaller versions of the gardens of paradise. Fountains enjoyed a significant role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exercise his power over nature. Seventeen and 18 century Popes sought to exalt their positions by adding beautiful baroque-style fountains at the point where restored Roman aqueducts arrived into the city.

Since indoor plumbing became the standard of the day for fresh, drinking water, by the end of the 19th century urban fountains were no longer needed for this purpose and they became purely ornamental. Gravity was substituted by mechanical pumps in order to enable fountains to bring in clean water and allow for beautiful water displays.

Modern-day fountains function mostly as decoration for community spaces, to honor individuals or events, and compliment entertainment and recreational activities.
