Garden Fountains  Defined 33827380239.jpg Garden Fountains Defined The movement of water streaming in or through a large feature is what identifies of a water feature. The broad variety of models available vary from a simple suspended wall fountain to an elaborate courtyard tiered fountain. These products are so versatile that they can be located outdoors or indoors. Ponds and pools are also regarded as water elements.

In addition to helping you relax, both sight and sound are enticed by the comforting sounds of a water fountain. Their aesthetically pleasing form beautifies the interior design of any living space. The water’s soothing sounds contribute to a feeling of tranquility, drown out unpleasant noises, and provide a wonderful water display.

A Solar Powered Outdoor Fountain

A Solar Powered Outdoor Fountain Have you always wanted to beautify the look of your house? Solar water features 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 fountains can be a better investment versus electric ones because they not only improve one's health but they offer other interesting monetary perks. While you may spend a little more upfront, the savings that you make in the long-term are worth it. You will not have to concern yourself about energy shortages since your fountain will not be powered by electricity.

Running water fountains means that your use of electricity will increase and thus your monthly bill. Keep in mind that while you may not see any rewards right away, your home will be worth more down the road.

Higher bills is not the only issue with using more electricity, the environment takes a big hit as well. Becoming “green” is just one of the pros of installing a solar water fountain running only on the power of the sun. The use of solar energy to heat or cool your house is much better for our planet.

This type of fountain demands less upkeep than others. Clogs don't occur because there is no motor - which leads to less cleaning.Solar Powered Outdoor Fountain 1670698333.jpg And less cleaning equals more time to play!

The Source of Modern Garden Water Fountains

Source Modern Garden Water Fountains 263289814074.jpg The Source of Modern Garden Water Fountains Hundreds of ancient Greek documents were translated into Latin under the auspices of the scholarly Pope Nicholas V, who ruled the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455. It was important for him to beautify the city of Rome to make it worthy of being known as the capital of the Christian world. Starting in 1453, the ruined ancient Roman aqueduct known as the Aqua Vergine which had brought fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away, underwent reconstruction at the behest of the Pope. 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 see the Trevi Fountain. Changes and extensions, included in the restored aqueduct, eventually provided the Trevi Fountain and the well-known baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona with the necessary water supply.
