Outdoor Wall Fountains
Outdoor wall fountains can improve the look and feel of your garden. You can also place them on your patio or near the sitting area. The constant movement of water will bring calmness into your life and make the time you spend in your garden even more special.
It doesn't matter if your garden is small because you can always find enough space for an outdoor wall water feature. The fountain will become a central component of the landscape so choosing the right design is quite important. Do your best to follow the general style of your garden and pick the fountain that speaks to you.
Where to place your fountain
These outdoor fountains are very useful because you can place them almost everywhere. They work well with both small and large gardens as long as you have a clear idea of the landscape design. We have a couple of placement tips that might help you out:
Make it visible
If your outdoor feature will be the main decorative piece in your garden, make sure you place it in a visible space. The nearby objects shouldn’t obscure your fountain. You can plant vegetation around it, or leave it as it is. Sometimes you might have to make it a corner fountain if your backyard doesn't permit it.
Water features should be placed on a firm wall that can support the weight of this structure. Yes, some wall-mounted fountains might be a bit too heavy for your fence so you have to find a light model that can be mounted on it.
Choosing the right model
Modern fountains: They are simple, clean, and very elegant. However, modern water fountains are often seen inside homes. You can try something different and place them on the patio or near your sitting area. It will work beautifully in that setting and will prove to be a wonderful water feature as well.
Traditional fountains: These are definitely suitable for gardens and outdoor areas. Traditional units are usually made of stone and they add a touch of class regardless of the placement. They come with beautifully decorated basins that will attract birds.
Animal fountains: These units are decorated by various depictions of different animals. They are definitely more traditional looking but with a slight twist. Animal water features mimic some of the larger fountains located in Europe and they will bring your garden to a whole new level of elegance.
These fountains are not particularly different so the same maintenance rules can be applied here. Always check the water levels because the shortage of water might damage the pump. Once you decide to clean the accumulated dirt and dry leaves, empty out the fountain and remove the pump first. Clean it well, and then move on to tubes and distribution unit. There will usually be some sort of a build-up inside and you'll notice that the fountain will work better after this step. Take care of the outside of the unit as well by dusting it off. Your water feature will work perfectly again in no time!
