Style Variations for Outdoor Water Fountains

A garden can be a little sanctuary, providing you a peaceful place to stop and enjoy some outdoor time. While it is not a simple process to build one, you will be grateful you did once you are able to relax and enjoy it. be_131__70654.jpg Investing in a gorgeous garden is good, as it will enhance the “curb appeal” and value of your home. A water feature is not the only way to improve your landscape; give some thought to adding trees and bushes, paving your driveway, or even putting in some special statues.

A water fountain can drastically transform the aesthetics of a garden. Where you once had a basic area, you will now have an outdoor wonderland. The trickling water of your fountain will not only give you a calming retreat, it will also attract wild birds and other friendly local creatures. All attention will now be focused on the beautiful fountain.

The Early, Unappreciated Water-Moving Alternative

In 1588, Agrippa’s water-lifting innovation captivated the interest and praise of Andrea Bacci but that turned out to be one of the final mentions of the technology. It could perhaps be that in 1592 when Rome’s most recent aqueduct, the Acqua Felice, began providing the Villa Medici, there was no longer much need for the equipment. This is all the more sad given how spectacular Camillo Agrippa’s technology was, absolutely unique in Italy during the centuries that transpired between the fall of ancient Rome and the current era. There might have been some other significant water-related works in Renaissance landscapes in the late sixteenth century, including water fountains which played music, water caprices (or giochi d’acqua) and even scenographic water demonstrations, but none was operated by water that defied the force of gravity.

Determing the Best Spot for Your Fountain

It is important to consider how a water fountain will fit into your garden prior to purchasing one. They make striking centerpieces in roundabouts and make a wonderful impression in driveways and entryways too.

Some types of fountains are especially built to lean against a wall. Typically, they have something on the back of them like a hook or a bar with which you can use to secure them to a wall, post, or some other secure place.

Since the top part of your fountain is unstable on its own, ensure that it is secure against a wall to avoid damage caused by strong winds, wild animals, or other natural hazards.

The garden sculpture style, yet another possibility, is perfect for parks or any place people tend to hang out to enjoy the fresh air and vistas.

Pond Fountains: The Treasure Trove in Your Very Own Yard

The immense spectacular ones that are found in front of nice buildings and in public squares are what one tends to think of when visualizing a fountain. But they actually come in a range of styles and sizes that are appropriate for smaller spaces. You might even find a location in your own garden area for a charming pond fountain.

Two good things will take place if you add one of your own. One is the sense of calm and loveliness that fountains add. What you need at the end of a rough day is the relaxing sound of the water and a tranquil ambiance. You will find your surroundings benefitting from its elegance, too. What’s more, your lovely fountain will fascinate your guests and you will find your parties more enjoyable.

Another advantage is that such a water feature will provide the fish in your pond with cleaner, healthier water.

A pond fountain will oxygenate the water by keeping it circulating, which is fantastic for fish. The better-oxygenated and constantly circulating water will ensure your fish are with you for a long time. You will observe an improvement in your plants as well.

Pondless Water Fountains: Some of the Advantages of Having one in your Backyard

There are two labels for this type of fountain: “disappearing” and “pondless”. It is known as “disappearing” due to the fact the water source is below ground. Disappearing fountains should be put near any place people hang out frequently, as they add so much to the surrounding area. They come in a range of distinctive styles including waterfalls, columns made of granite, ceramic pots, and millstones.

Disappearing fountains also come with many advantages. The water rises from underground and does not form a large pool above ground so any risk to those around it is reduced. For this reason, it presents no threat to children. Evaporating water is also not an issue because the water source is not out in the open. This type of fountain, therefore, is a good choice for regions where there is a need to reduce water consumption. The water source will remain clean and free of dirt since it is underground and algae will not grow in it, so you will not need to spend a lot of time cleaning it. Last but not least, because of its small size it can fit nearly anywhere you like.
