A Short History of Early Garden Water Fountains

A Short History of Early Garden Water Fountains Villages and communities relied on functional water fountains to channel water for cooking, washing, and cleaning from local sources like lakes, streams, or creeks. To produce water flow through a fountain until the later part of the 1800’s, and produce a jet of water, demanded gravity and a water source such as a spring or lake, situated higher than the fountain. The splendor and spectacle of fountains make them perfect for historic monuments. When you see a fountain at present, that is not what the first water fountains looked like.Short History Early  Garden Water Fountains 33403696675609158.jpg Created for drinking water and ceremonial functions, the 1st fountains were basic carved stone basins. The original stone basins are suspected to be from about 2000 BC. Early fountains used in ancient civilizations depended on gravity to manipulate the circulation of water through the fountain. The location of the fountains was determined by the water source, which is why you’ll commonly find them along reservoirs, waterways, or streams. Animals, Gods, and religious figures dominated the initial ornate Roman fountains, starting to show up in about 6 B.C.. A well-engineered collection of reservoirs and aqueducts kept Rome's public fountains supplied with fresh water.
