The Myriad Styles of Wall Fountains

Myriad  Styles Wall Fountains 03028993610.jpg The Myriad Styles of Wall Fountains Wall fountains are well suited to little patios or yards because they do not take up too much space while also adding a bit of style and providing a great place to find peace and quiet. When considering the many types of outdoor wall fountains available including traditional, antique, modern, or Asian, you are certain to find one most suitable to your design ideas. Your tastes dictate the type you buy so while there may not be a prefabricated fountain to satisfy you, you do have the option of having a customized one.

Mounted and stand-alone water features are available on the market. You can place a mounted wall fountain because they are small and self-contained. Wall fountains made of resin (resembling stone) or fiberglass are typically light so they can be easily hung. Free-standing fountains, often referred to as floor fountains, are of considerable size, have a basin positioned on the ground and a smooth side which leans against a wall. Water features such as these are ordinarily made of cast stone and have no weight limitations.

Customized fountains which can be incorporated into a new or existing wall are often prescribed by landscaping designers. Installing the basin against the wall and installing all the plumbing work requires a professional mason to do it right. A fountain mask or a spout also needs to be incorporated into the wall. If you want a cohesive look for your garden, get a customized wall fountain because it becomes part of the panorama rather than an afterthought.

Water Transport Strategies in Historic Rome

Water Transport Strategies in Historic Rome Rome’s first elevated aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was built in 273 BC; before that, residents residing at higher elevations had to depend on natural streams for their water. If residents residing at higher elevations did not have access to springs or the aqueduct, they’d have to rely on the remaining existing solutions of the day, cisterns that collected rainwater from the sky and subterranean wells that drew the water from below ground. Starting in the sixteenth century, a new system was introduced, using Acqua Vergine’s subterranean sections to supply water to Pincian Hill.Water Transport Strategies Historic Rome 04797263988.jpg Through its initial building and construction, pozzi (or manholes) were situated at set intervals alongside the aqueduct’s channel. While these manholes were manufactured to make it easier to sustain the aqueduct, it was also feasible to use buckets to remove water from the channel, which was carried out by Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi from the time he obtained the property in 1543 to his death in 1552. Reportedly, the rainwater cistern on his property wasn’t enough to fulfill his needs. Via an orifice to the aqueduct that flowed under his property, he was able to suit his water demands.
