Mounted and free-standing water features are available on the market. Little, self-contained mounted wall fountains can be hung on any surface. Fountains of this kind need to be light, therefore, they are usually made of resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass. Free-standing fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, are of considerable size, have a basin situated on the ground and a smooth side which leans against a wall. Water features such as these are ordinarily made of cast stone and have no weight limits.

Custom-built fountains which can be integrated into a new or existing wall are often prescribed by landscaping designers. The basin and all the required plumbing are best installed by a qualified mason. The wall will have to have a spout or fountain mask incorporated into it. The unified look provided by customized wall fountains make them appear to be part of the landscape instead of an afterthought.
