A myriad of present-day designers and fountain craftsmen have found inspiration in the fountains and water features of the past. Therefore, in order to connect your home to previous times, include one these in your decor. In addition to the wonderful attributes of garden fountains, they also produce water and moisture which goes into the air, thereby, attracting birds as well as other creatures and harmonizing the environment. For instance, pesky flying insects are usually deterred by the birds attracted to the fountain or birdbath.

The space necessary for a cascading or spouting fountain is substantial, so a wall fountain is the perfect size for a small yard. There are two types of fountains to pick 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 include a fountain. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this kind of work requires know-how, so it is best to hire a skilled person rather than go at it yourself.

It may have come to be outdated when the Villa Medici was enabled to receive water from the Acqua Felice, the early contemporary aqueduct, in 1592. The better explanation is that it was forgotten about when Ferdinando left for Florence in 1588, after the death of his brother Francesco di Medici, to trade his place as cardinal for one as the Grand Duke of Tuscany. #P# It might go against the force of gravity to lift water to Renaissance gardens, feeding them in a way other late sixteenth century designs which include scenographic water displays, music fountains and giochi d’acqua or water caprices, were not.
