Your Outdoor Living Area: A Great Place for a Wall Fountain

The inclusion of a wall water feature or an outdoor garden fountain is an excellent way to embellish your yard or garden design.Outdoor Living Area: Great Place Wall Fountain 62929407356847.jpg Historical fountains and water features have stirred the notice of modern-day designers as well as fountain manufacturers. You can also strengthen the connection to the past by incorporating one of these to your home's interior design. Among the many properties of these beautiful garden fountains is the water and moisture they release into the air which attracts birds and other wild life as well as helps to balance the ecosystem. For instance, pesky flying insects are usually deterred by the birds attracted to the fountain or birdbath.

The area necessary for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the ideal size for a small yard. Two options to pick from include either a freestanding type with an even back set against a fence or wall in your garden, or a wall-mounted, self-contained type which hangs on a wall. Make certain to include a fountain mask to an existing wall and a basin to collect the water at the bottom if you want to put in a fountain to your living area. It is best not to undertake this job yourself as professional plumbers and masons are more suitable to do this kind of work.

Anglo-Saxon Grounds During the Norman Conquest

The Anglo-Saxon way of life was considerably changed by the appearance of the Normans in the later eleventh century. The Normans were better than the Anglo-Saxons at architecture and horticulture when they came into power. But before centering on home-life or having the occasion to contemplate domestic architecture or decoration, the Normans had to subjugate an entire society.Anglo-Saxon Grounds Norman Conquest 449178359087009.jpg Castles were more standard designs and often constructed on blustery hills, where their people devoted both time and space to exercising offense and defense, while monasteries were large stone buildings, mostly located in the widest, most fruitful hollows. Relaxing pastimes such as gardening were out of place in these desolate citadels. Berkeley Castle, potentially the most pristine model of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture, still exists today. The keep is said to date from the time of William the Conqueror. A large terrace meant for exercising and as a way to stop attackers from mining under the walls runs around the building. On one of these parapets is a picturesque bowling green covered in grass and bordered by an aged hedge of yew that has been shaped into coarse battlements.Find Peace Outdoor Water Features 274525967728945.jpg
