The Positive Benefits of installing a garden fountain in Your Living Area

The Positive Benefits of installing a garden fountain in Your Living Area You can improve your exterior area by adding a wall fountain or an outdoor garden water feature to your property or gardening project. Many current designers and artisans have been influenced by historical fountains and water features. You can also strengthen the connection to the past by including one of these to your home's interior design.Positive Benefits installing   garden fountain  Living Area 753234502.jpg The advantage of having a garden fountain extends beyond its beauty as it also attracts birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it emits into the atmosphere. For example, irksome flying insects are usually discouraged by the birds attracted to the fountain or birdbath.

The space required for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the ideal size for a small yard. There are two types of fountains to choose from including the freestanding model with a flat back and an attached basin set up against a fence or a wall in your yard, or the wall-mounted, self-contained version which is hung directly on a wall. Both a fountain mask located on the existing wall as well as a basin located at the bottom to collect the water are necessary if you wish to add a fountain. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this kind of work requires know-how, so it is best to employ a skilled person rather than do it yourself.

The Source of Modern Day Wall Fountains

The Source of Modern Day Wall Fountains Hundreds of classic Greek texts were translated into Latin under the auspices of the scholarly Pope Nicholas V, who led the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455. Embellishing Rome and making it the worthy capital of the Christian world was at the heart of his ambitions.Source Modern Day Wall Fountains 0773465245967709378.jpg Reconstruction of the Acqua Vergine, a desolate Roman aqueduct which had transported fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away, began in 1453 at the behest of the Pope. Building a mostra, an imposing celebratory fountain built by ancient Romans to memorialize the entry point of an aqueduct, was a tradition revived by Nicholas V. The present-day site of the Trevi Fountain was once occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and built by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. The water which eventually furnished the Trevi Fountain as well as the renown baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona came from the modified aqueduct which he had renovated.
