A great way to enhance the appearance of your outdoor living area is to add a wall fountain or an exterior garden fountain to your landscaping or garden design. Many current designers and craftsmen have been influenced by historical fountains and water features. As such, integrating one of these to your interior is a great way to connect it to the past. In addition to the wonderful characteristics of garden fountains, they also produce water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, drawing in birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. For example, birds lured by a fountain or birdbath can be helpful because they fend off annoying flying insects.
Wall fountains are a good option if your yard is small because they do not need much space as compared to a spouting or cascading fountain. You can choose to set up a stand-alone fountain with a flat back and an attached basin propped against a fence or wall in your backyard, or a wall-mounted type which is self-contained and suspended from a wall. A water feature can be added to an existing wall if you include some type of fountain mask as well as a basin to gather the water at the bottom. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this type of job requires know-how, so it is best to index employ a skilled person rather than go at it yourself.
