Install a Garden Fountain as a Celebratory Piece

To honor the memory of someone who has passed, consider creating a garden fountain. Many old rituals have been eliminated in today’s society. su1860_6__22688.jpg Commemorating loved ones who have passed away is still the standard, however. Personal things from the deceased person’s life often play an important role in a commemorative piece. Many people view backyard garden fountains as wonderful commemorative pieces to their loved ones. Including pictures, planting a tree or flowers, attaching a customized plaque, or holding a vigil at the fountain to pay tribute are ways you can make it more personal.

Remembering those who have passed away is easy with a garden fountain. Give thanks for the success, abundance, and good fortune of the defunct with the symbolic flowing water of a fountain. Whatever sort of garden fountain you select as a memorial, make sure it is sturdy, high quality, and able to withstand any type of weather. After you do the work to build the garden fountain memorial, you will want to make sure it will last.

Why Your Your Four-Legged Friends and Flying Visitors Enjoy Fountains

Putting in an outdoor water fountain or a bird feeder will allow you to enjoy the natural presence of wildlife or pets. Birds need to have water to drink, bathe in, as well a place to groom, or preen. Birds including robins, thrushes, orioles, or warblers prefer the flow of water from a fountain and are not necessarily drawn to bird feeders. Many birds prefer flowing water versus standing water, making an outdoor fountain even more enticing than a bowl-shaped bird bath. Trickling fountains which splash water have a more detectable sound, this attracting even more birds.

Dogs like fountains as they provide another place to drink water. Dogs and cats will be outdoors looking out for clean water during hot temperatures. Fountains generally require little cleaning due to their constantly flowing water, whereas birdbaths need to be regularly maintained because they easily collect debris.

Rome, Gian Bernini, And Water Fountains

There are many famous fountains in Rome’s city center. Gian Lorenzo Bernini, one of the most brilliant sculptors and artists of the 17th century developed, conceptualized and constructed almost all of them. Also a city architect, he had abilities as a water fountain designer, and remnants of his life's work are obvious throughout the streets of Rome. To completely exhibit their artwork, mainly in the form of public water fountains and water fountains, Bernini's father, a celebrated Florentine sculptor, guided his young son, and they eventually relocated in the Roman Capitol. The young Bernini earned compliments from Popes and influential artists alike, and was an exceptional worker. At first he was well known for his sculpting skills. Working faultlessly with Roman marble, he made use of a base of knowledge in the ancient Greek architecture, most notably in the Vatican. Although many artists had an impact on his work, Michelangelo had the most profound effect.

A Solar Garden Wall Fountain

Have you always wanted to enhance the look of your house? Solar fountains might be the answer - they are a perfect add-on to any home because they embellish the layout and raise the price of your home. Solar powered water features can be a wiser investment versus electric ones because they not only improve one's well-being but they offer other interesting financial perks.

While your initial expenditures may be higher, the long-term savings are beneficial. You will not have to concern yourself about energy shortages since your fountain will not be driven by electricity.

Constant running water fountains will probably lead to a higher electric bill at the end of the month. The short-term perks may not be noticeable, but keep in mind that the increased worth of your home will be later on.

The issue with using more electricity is not only about our electric bills, the effect on the environment is considerable. Solar powered water fountains are fueled straight from the sun thus making them the optimal “green” fountain. Using solar energy to run a water feature is not only favorable to our environment but it also heats and cools our homes.

This kind of water fountain doesn't need as much maintenance as others.

These water features require less maintenance than other kinds. As there is no electrical motor that can get clogged, little cleaning is required. Which ultimately means more time to relax in your yard.
