The Various Construction Materials of Garden Water fountains

The Various Construction Materials of Garden Water fountainsVarious Construction Materials Garden Water fountains 974049264420284784.jpg While today’s garden fountains are made in a number of materials, the majority are made from metal. Metallic versions offer clean lines and unique sculptural accents and will fit in with nearly any decorative style and budget. The interior design of your home should set the look and feel of your yard and garden as well.

One of the most trendy metals for sculptural garden fountains these days is copper. Copper fountains are the best choice because they are perfect for the inside and outside. Another advantage of copper fountains is they are versatile and come in a wide assortment of styles.

If your style is more old-fashioned, a brass water fountain might work for you. Even though they are a bit old-fashioned, brass fountains are quite widespread because they often include interesting artwork.

Arguably the most contemporary of all metals is stainless steel. If you pick a cutting-edge steel design, both the value and tranquility of your garden will get a nice lift. Just like other water features, they come in a variety of sizes.

For people who want the visual appeal of a metal fountain but desire a lighter weight and more affordable option, fiberglass is the answer. Keeping a fiberglass water fountain clean and working well is quite easy, another aspect consumers love.

Where did Landscape Fountains Begin?

Originally, fountains only served a functional purpose. Cities, towns and villages made use of nearby aqueducts or springs to supply them with potable water as well as water where they could bathe or wash. Up to the late nineteenth century, water fountains had to be near an aqueduct or reservoir and more elevated than the fountain so that gravity could make the water flow downwards or jet high into the air. Fountains were an optimal source of water, and also served to adorn living areas and memorialize the designer. Roman fountains often depicted imagery of animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks. Muslims and Moorish garden designers of the Middle Ages included fountains to re-create smaller versions of the gardens of paradise. Fountains enjoyed a significant role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exert his power over nature. To mark the entrance of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the building 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 adornments since indoor plumbing provided the necessary drinking water. The creation of unique water effects and the recycling of water were 2 things made possible by swapping gravity with mechanical pumps.

Beautifying city parks, honoring people or events and entertaining, are some of the uses of modern-day fountains.
