The Beginnings of Contemporary Outdoor Wall Fountains

The Beginnings of Contemporary Outdoor Wall Fountains Hundreds of ancient Greek texts were translated into Latin under the authority of the scholarly Pope Nicholas V, who ruled the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455.Beginnings  Contemporary  Outdoor Wall Fountains 64917910441570862963.jpg In order to make Rome deserving of being the capital of the Christian world, the Pope resolved to embellish the beauty of the city. 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 restoration at the behest of the Pope. The ancient Roman custom of building an awe-inspiring commemorative fountain at the location where an aqueduct arrived, also known as a mostra, was revived by Nicholas V. The present-day site of the Trevi Fountain was formerly occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and built by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. The aqueduct he had refurbished included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the famed baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.

Setting Up and Maintaining Large Outdoor Fountains

Setting Up and Maintaining Large Outdoor Fountains A very important first step is to consider the proportions of the outdoor wall fountain with regards to the space you have available for it. It is essential that the wall where you are going to hang it is strong enough to support its load.Setting Maintaining  Large Outdoor Fountains 7131265759479274.jpg Therefore for smaller areas or walls, a more lightweight feature is going to be more appropriate. An electrical socket near the fountain is required to power the fountain. There are many different types of fountains, each with their own set of simple, step-by-step directions.

All you will require to properly install your outdoor wall fountain is typically provided in easy-to-use kits. The kit will contain a submersible pump, the hoses and basin (or reservoir). If the size is appropriate, the basin can be concealed amongst your garden plants. Since outdoor wall fountains require little care, the only thing left to do is clean it regularly.

Change the water regularly so it is always clean. Debris such as twigs, leaves or dirt should be cleared away quickly. Excessively cold temperatures can damage your outdoor wall fountain so be sure to protect it during the winter months. In order to avoid any damage, such as cracking, from freezing water during the cold winter months, relocate your pump inside. To sum up, your outdoor wall fountain will continue to be a great add-on to your garden if you keep it well looked after and well maintained.
