Stone and metal are most common elements used to construct garden wall fountains even though they can be manufactured from other materials as well. You must know the look you are shooting for in order to select the best material. Outdoor wall fountains come in many models and sizes, therefore ensure that the design you choose to purchase is hand-crafted, simple to hang and lightweight. In addition, be sure to purchase a fountain which requires minimal maintenance. The re-circulating pump and hanging hardware are usually the only parts which need extra care in most installations, although there may be some cases in which the setup is a bit more complicated. Little exertion is needed to enliven your garden with these sorts of fountains.
