Set-up will include putting together various pieces. First you should attach the base to the upper part, then connect the pump and the tubing. Remember to review the instructions before getting started in order to avert problems. Generally, it is simple and straightforward. Keep in mind, though, that each style might require a slight change. Have a friend hold the wall fountain in the desired spot, then mark the wall appropriately. To ensure it will be straight, use a level. Mark the wall where you want the upper end of the wall fountain as well as the bottom. Your wall fountain can be installed in one of two ways. You will find holes on the back side of the wall fountain which can be hung directly onto the screws. On the other hand, brackets can be secured to the wall. The second option is better suited, especially for heavier wall fountains. Mark the point on the wall where the brackets need to be mounted. To place the drywall anchors, first off make pilot holes into the wall. Attentively hammer the anchors into the wall. Hold the brackets in position on the wall and use a portable drill or screwdriver to attach them. The wall fountain is ready to be placed onto the brackets.

Plug the pump into the wall and watch the water begin to flow. Carefully put in just enough water to reach one inch below the top edge of the basin.

The water will overflow and cause damage if the wall fountain is too full.

While a fountain can be a focal point anywhere in a garden, many people place them in the center. Cast stone, metal, ceramic, and fiberglass are just a few of the materials used to produce them.

The Outcome of the Norman Invasion on Anglo-Saxon Gardens

The introduction of the Normans in the second half of the 11th century considerably modified The Anglo-Saxon ways of living.

The ability of the Normans exceeded the Anglo-Saxons' in architecture and farming at the time of the conquest. But there was no time for home life, domestic architecture, and decoration until the Normans had overcome the whole region. Because of this, castles were cruder buildings than monasteries: Monasteries were often immense stone buildings located in the biggest and most fecund valleys, while castles were constructed on windy crests where their residents dedicated time and space to tasks for offense and defense. The sterile fortresses did not provide for the quiet avocation of farming. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is depicted in Berkeley Castle, which is perhaps the most untouched example we have. The keep is reported to have been created during the time of William the Conqueror. A significant terrace serves as a deterrent to intruders who would attempt to mine the walls of the building. One of these terraces, a charming bowling green, is covered grass and flanked by an ancient yew hedge cut into the figure of crude battlements.
