The location of a wall fountain is one that can be favorably viewed from the garden and from indoors. The only power supply that is required is for the pump operation. Garden wall fountains can stand alone or integrated with other landscape elements like flowerbeds and creepers. The size of the fountain should be based on the location. It is important that the size is suitable for the space so that it becomes a visual focus, without overwhelming the space. You don't want the wall fountain to be all that is focused on.

Options and features of wall fountains

  1. 1. Options and Features of Wall Fountains The location of a wall fountain is one that can be favorably viewed from the garden and from indoors. The only power supply that is required is for the pump operation. Garden wall fountains can stand alone or integrated with other landscape elements like flowerbeds and creepers. The size of the fountain should be based on the location. It is important that the size is suitable for the space so that it becomes a visual focus, without overwhelming the space.

Water noise is something that is also quite popular with wall fountains. You may choose the water noise to suit a garden, a gushing noise may be better appreciated in a noisy garden where a trickle would go unnoticed. An inside solar water fountain would have a greater calming affect. With some of the fountains you can control the water and create sprays or bubbles, some fountains have settings to control water flow which changes the noise and appearance. Material choice determines appearance, durability and price of fountains. Materials like rocks, pebbles and clay tiles create a very rustic and earthy look suited for the outdoors. Marble has a beautiful appearance but is not recommended in freezing cold temperatures. Metals like brass, bronze and copper show a more rustic look. Along with acrylic and fiberglass there is a large variety of materials to choose from. You always want to check the wall strength for compatibility with the loading of wall mounted fountains and ensure secure fixing to avoid accidents. Pedestal basin's with back plates are also available and can be installed against the wall. As in any outdoor installation, water features for the garden should have low maintenance. Also, with any outdoor installation make sure you have enough room to allow access for occasional cleaning. Buying a fountain that is suited for you, your garden space and style will bring you great enjoyment. There is really no construction or renovation or running of wires or water lines. Once installed it is basically maintenance free. Several years ago people started to find things to decorate their yard and patio with such as wrought iron décor and other whimsical things for the garden until they came across a huge line of solar powered garden décor products. Not long ago all there was, was pathway lights you stuck in the ground and they really didn't work. Most people usually tripped over them. It's amazing how far technology has come. You can move your solar powered garden fountain anywhere. As long as you get some sun on the panel you can even get fiber-optic sun powered flowers to light up your garden at night. Wall fountains appeal to a lot of people because they look modern and trendy, and they are something
