The Positive Benefits of Adding a Water Feature in Your Living Area

The Positive Benefits of Adding a Water Feature in Your Living Area A great way to enhance the appeal of your outdoor living area is to add a wall fountain or an exterior garden fountain to your landscaping or garden design. Contemporary designers and fountain builders alike use historical fountains and water features to shape their creations. Therefore, in order to connect your home to previous times, add one these in your home decor. Among the many attributes of these beautiful garden water features is the water and moisture they discharge into the air which attracts birds and other wild life as well as helps to balance the ecosystem. Birds drawn to a fountain or bird bath often scare away irksome flying pests, for instance.

Spouting or cascading fountains are not the best choice for a small garden since they occupy a great deal of space. Either a stand-alone fountain with an even back and an attached basin set against a fence or a wall, or a wall-mounted style which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the options from which you can choose. Be sure to include a fountain mask to an existing wall and a basin to collect the water at the base if you wish to put in a fountain to your living area. The plumbing and masonry work necessary for this type of work requires expertise, so it is best to hire a skilled person rather than do it yourself.

The Source of Modern Outdoor Garden Fountains

The Source of Modern Outdoor Garden Fountains Himself a highly educated man, Pope Nicholas V led the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 till 1455 and was responsible for the translation of hundreds of age-old texts from their original Greek into Latin. It was imperative for him to beautify the city of Rome to make it worthy of being called the capital of the Christian world. Restoration 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, a grandiose celebratory fountain built by ancient Romans to memorialize the arrival point of an aqueduct, was a tradition revived by Nicholas V. The Trevi Fountain now occupies the area formerly filled with a wall fountain crafted by Leon Battista Albert, an architect commissioned by the Pope. Modifications and extensions, included in the repaired aqueduct, eventually provided the Trevi Fountain and the well-known baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona with the necessary water supply.
