At What Point Did Water Features Emerge?

Pope Nicholas V, himself a learned man, reigned the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of ancient classic Greek texts into Latin. Beautifying Rome and making it the worthy capital of the Christian world was at the center of his objectives. In 1453 the Pope commissioned the reconstruction of the Aqua Vergine, an historic Roman aqueduct which had carried clean drinking water into the city from eight miles away. The ancient Roman tradition of building an awe-inspiring commemorative fountain at the location where an aqueduct arrived, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The architect Leon Battista Alberti was commissioned by the Pope to build a wall fountain where we now find the Trevi Fountain. The aqueduct he had refurbished included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the renowned baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.

The Many Kinds of Wall Fountains

You can find peace and silence when you add a wall fountain in your garden or patio. You can also make use of a small space by having one custom-built. The requisite elements include a spout, a water basin, internal tubing, and a pump regardless of whether it is freestanding or anchored. There are any variety of models to pick from most notably conventional, contemporary, classic, or Asian.

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

It is possible to integrate a wall-mounted fountain onto an already existent wall or built into a new wall. This type of fountain adds to a cohesive look making it seem as if it was part of the landscape rather than an added feature.

The Influence of the Norman Conquest on Anglo-Saxon Gardens

The Anglo-Saxon way of life was considerably changed by the arrival of the Normans in the later eleventh century. At the time of the conquest, the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons in building design and cultivation. Still, home life, household architecture, and decoration were out of the question until the Normans taken over the entire populace. Castles were more standard designs and often erected on blustery hills, where their tenants devoted both time and space to exercising offense and defense, while monasteries were large stone buildings, regularly positioned in the widest, most fruitful hollows.Influence Norman Conquest Anglo-Saxon Gardens 962571470995.jpg Gardening, a placid occupation, was impracticable in these fruitless fortifications. Berkeley Castle, maybe the most unspoiled model of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture, still exists today. The keep is rumored to have been developed during the time of William the Conqueror. A massive terrace serves as a deterrent to intruders who would try to mine the walls of the building. A scenic bowling green, covered in grass and bordered by battlements clipped out of an ancient yew hedge, creates one of the terraces.
