Contemporary Garden Decor: Fountains and their Beginnings

Contemporary Garden Decor: Fountains and their BeginningsContemporary Garden Decor: Fountains  Beginnings 8819263428.jpg 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 a noteworthy effect.

Originally, fountains only served a practical purpose. Inhabitants of cities, townships and small towns utilized them as a source of drinking water and a place to wash up, which meant that fountains had to be linked to nearby aqueduct or spring. Until the late nineteenth, century most water fountains operated using the force of gravity to allow water to flow or jet into the air, therefore, they needed a supply of water such as a reservoir or aqueduct located higher than the fountain. Artists thought of fountains as amazing additions to a living space, however, the fountains also served to supply clean water and celebrate the designer responsible for building it. Roman fountains often depicted images of animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks. Muslims and Moorish landscaping designers of the Middle Ages included fountains to re-create smaller models of the gardens of paradise. To show his prominence over nature, French King Louis XIV included fountains in the Garden of Versailles. To mark the entryway 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 entered the city of Rome

Urban fountains made at the end of the 19th century served only as decorative and celebratory ornaments since indoor plumbing provided the essential drinking water. Gravity was replaced by mechanical pumps in order to enable fountains to bring in clean water and allow for amazing water displays.

These days, fountains decorate public areas and are used to pay tribute to individuals or events and fill recreational and entertainment needs.

The Results of the Norman Conquest on Anglo-Saxon Gardens

The Results of the Norman Conquest on Anglo-Saxon GardensResults Norman Conquest Anglo-Saxon Gardens 35645216670597294883.jpg The introduction of the Normans in the 2nd half of the 11th century irreparably altered The Anglo-Saxon lifestyle. The skill of the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons' in design and agriculture at the time of the conquest. However, there was no time for home life, domesticated architecture, and decoration until the Normans had overcome the whole realm. Castles were more standard constructions and often constructed on blustery hills, where their tenants spent both time and space to exercising offense and defense, while monasteries were large stone buildings, mostly situated in the widest, most fruitful hollows. Gardening, a placid occupation, was unfeasible in these fruitless fortifications. The purest example of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture existent today is Berkeley Castle. The keep is rumored to have been developed during the time of William the Conqueror. A large terrace meant for exercising and as a means to stop attackers from mining below the walls runs about the building. On one of these terraces lies a quaint bowling green: it's covered in grass and flanked by an old yew hedge that is created into the shape of rough ramparts.
