The Genesis Of Outdoor Fountains

A fountain, an incredible piece of engineering, not only supplies drinking water as it pours into a basin, it can also launch water high into the air for an extraordinary effect.

The main purpose of a fountain was originally strictly practical. Water fountains were connected to a spring or aqueduct to supply potable water as well as bathing water for cities, townships and villages. Up to the late nineteenth century, water fountains had to be near an aqueduct or reservoir and higher than the fountain so that gravity could make the water move downwards or shoot high into the air. Fountains were an optimal source of water, and also served to decorate living areas and celebrate the designer. Animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks were often used by Romans to beautify their fountains. To depict the gardens of paradise, Muslim and Moorish garden planners of the Middle Ages added fountains to their designs. The fountains found in the Gardens of Versailles were meant to show the power over nature held by King Louis XIV of France. To mark the entrance of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the construction of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts arrived in the city of Rome

Since indoor plumbing became the norm 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 permit fountains to bring in clean water and allow for amazing water displays.

These days, fountains adorn public areas and are used to honor individuals or events and fill recreational and entertainment needs.

Installation of a Garden Fountain In Smaller Backyards

Since water is reflective, it has the effect of making a smaller spot appear bigger than it is. Dark materials alter the reflective properties of a fountain or water feature. Use underwater lights, which come in many different designs and colors, to display your new feature at night. Sunlight is required to power eco-lights during the day time while submerged lights are great for night use.Installation Garden Fountain Smaller Backyards 4687273301665367.jpg Natural treatments use them because they release a calming effect which helps to relieve stress as well as anxiety.
