There is a wide array of such features ranging something as simple as a hanging wall fountain or as elaborate as a courtyard tiered fountain. The versatility of this feature is useful since it can be placed inside or outdoors. Water elements entail ponds and swimming pools as well.

Living spaces such as extensive yards, yoga studios, comfortable verandas, apartment balconies, or office settings are great spots to add a water feature such as a garden wall fountain. There is nothing better to relax you while also activating your senses of sight and hearing than the pleasing sounds of slowly trickling water in your fountain. Their aesthetically pleasing shape accentuates the interior design of any room. You can also have fun watching the striking water display, experience the serenity, and reduce any unwanted noises with the soothing sounds of water.

Where did Large Garden Fountains Begin?

Where did Large Garden Fountains Begin? The incredible construction of a fountain allows it to provide clean water or shoot water high into air for dramatic effect and it can also serve as an excellent design feature to complement your home.

Originally, fountains only served a practical purpose. Cities, towns and villages made use of nearby aqueducts or springs to supply them with potable water as well as water where they could bathe or wash. Up to the late 19th century, water fountains had to be near an aqueduct or reservoir and higher than the fountain so that gravity could make the water flow down or jet high into the air. Fountains were an optimal source of water, and also served to decorate living areas and celebrate the artist.Large Garden Fountains Begin? 098337931639357.jpg Animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks were often used by Romans to decorate their fountains. During the Middle Ages, Muslim and Moorish garden planners incorporated fountains to create mini variations of the gardens of paradise. The fountains found in the Gardens of Versailles were meant to show the power over nature held by King Louis XIV of France. To mark the entrance of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the building of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts entered the city of Rome

Indoor plumbing became the key source of water by the end of the 19th century thereby limiting urban fountains to mere decorative elements. The introduction of unique water effects and the recycling of water were two things made possible by swapping gravity with mechanical pumps.

Modern fountains are used to adorn community spaces, honor individuals or events, and enrich recreational and entertainment events.
