If you doubt the benefits of water fountains, just look at the research supporting this idea. The negative ions generated by water features are countered by the positive ions released by present-day conveniences. The negative ions produced by these kinds of water features overtake the positive ones resulting in positive changes to both your psychological and physical health. The increased serotonin levels arising from these types of features make people more aware, serene and energized. The negative ions generated by indoor wall fountains foster a better mood as well as get rid of air impurities from your home. They also help to reduce allergies, contaminants as well as other types of irritants. Lastly, the dust particles and micro-organisms floating in the air inside your house are absorbed by water fountains leading to better overall health.

The Right Way to Mount a Wall Water Feature

Improve virtually any space with the addition of a wall fountain. The effects of the water sounds include providing tranquility and calm to the room. While any space will benefit from a wall fountain, they are most often hung in entryways. How to mount one varies somewhat depending on the model, but there are some general instructions that apply to all of them. Bear in mind that different pieces will need to be put together during assembly.

It will be necessary to connect the pump and tubing, and the base will need to be secured to the top part. It is advisable to carefully look at the instructions before you begin the assembly process. You should find the steps relatively simple. Keep in mind, though, that each design might require a slight adjustment. The easiest way to ensure it is positioned correctly is to recruit another person to hold it where you want it while you mark the wall. To ensure a straight line, use a level. Mark the wall where you want the top of the wall fountain as well as the base. Wall fountains can be mounted in more than one way. The first is to use screws which you slide right into the holes on the back. Alternatively, you could affix brackets to the wall and use those. The second option is better suited, especially for heavier wall fountains. Mark the spot on the wall where the brackets need to be mounted. Utilize a drill to make the pilot holes on the wall for the drywall anchors. Carefully hammer the anchors into the wall. Hold the brackets in position on the wall and use a cordless drill or screwdriver to attach them. It is now time to put your wall fountain onto the mounting brackets. Check to see that it is in the proper position and secure on the brackets.

Water can be added once the fountain has been mounted. Use sufficient water so that the pump is entirely covered. It is now time to plug it in and watch the water trickle. Gently put in more water until it comes within an inch of the top of the basin. Be careful not to fill it completely to the top or it will overflow when you turn off the pump. The water level will rise because all of the moving water will settle down at the bottom of the basin. If there is too much water, it will spill out and can wreck your floor and furniture.

A Solar Energy Powered Garden Wall Fountain

Do you want to make your home just a little more stunning? Stop looking! Solar water fountains are the perfect solution - they bring elegance to any home and at the same time add financial value to the property. They are the same as electric fountains in that they help with one's overall health but they also offer monetary benefits. Despite the high initial price, costs associated with these water features are worthwhile. Because your fountain will not be fueled by electrical energy, there will be no need to be concerned about any power shortages.

Running water fountains means that your use of electricity will increase and thus your monthly bill. Even though short-term expenses might be more substantial than you had anticipated, don't forget that your home is increasing in value.

Spending more money on our electric bills is not the only downside - the environment is highly impacted too. The only source of energy used by solar powered water features is the sun making them a “green” option. Using solar energy to heat or cool your house is much better for our environment.

This sort of water fountain doesn't need as much maintenance as others.

These water features require less cleaning than other kinds. Since solar fountains don't have motors, they don't get clogged which leads to less cleaning. And because there is little cleaning to do, you will have more time to enjoy yourself!

Landscape Elegance: Landscape Fountains

Since garden water fountains are no longer dependent on a nearby pond, it is possible to place them close to a wall. Digging, installing and cleaning a nearby pond are no longer a necessity. Due to its self-contained quality, this fountain no longer needs plumbing work. However, water must be added consistently. Remove the water from the bowl and place clean water in its place when you see that the spot is grimy.

Any number of materials can be utilized to make garden wall fountains, but stone and metal are the most practical. Knowing the style you wish for shows the right material to use. Garden wall fountains come in many models and sizes, therefore ensure that the style you decide to buy is hand-crafted, simple to hang and lightweight. Ensure that your fountain is manageable as far as maintenance is concerned. While there may be some cases in which the setup needs a bit more care, generally the majority require a minimal amount of work to install since the only two parts which require scrutiny are the re-circulating pump and the hanging hardware. You can effortlessly perk up your outdoor area with these kinds of fountains.

The Broad Array of Wall Water Fountains

You can find peace and silence when you add a wall fountain in your backyard or patio. You can also make use of a small space by having one custom-built. A spout, a water basin, internal piping, and a pump are vital for freestanding as well as mounted styles. There are any number of different varieties available on the market including traditional, contemporary, classical, or Asian.

Normally quite large, freestanding wall fountains, also known as floor fountains, have their basins on the ground.

You can choose to place your wall-mounted fountain on an existing wall or build it into a new wall. This style of fountain adds to a cohesive look making it seem as if it was part of the landscape instead of an added feature.

The Influence of the Norman Invasion on Anglo-Saxon Garden Design

Anglo-Saxons experienced great adjustments to their day-to-day lives in the latter half of the eleventh century due to the accession of the Normans. At the time of the conquest, the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons in building design and cultivation. But yet there was no time for home life, domestic design, and decoration until the Normans had overcome the whole region. Monasteries and castles served different purposes, so while monasteries were enormous stone structures assembled in only the most productive, wide dales, castles were set upon blustery knolls where the people focused on understanding offensive and defensive tactics. The tranquil practice of gardening was unrealistic in these dreary bastions. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is exemplified in Berkeley Castle, which is conceivably the most untouched sample we have. The keep is said to date from William the Conqueror's time period. A spacious terrace recommended for exercising and as a way to stop attackers from mining under the walls runs around the building. On 1 of these terraces sits a charming bowling green: it's covered in grass and flanked by an old yew hedge that is created into the shape of rough ramparts.
