The First Documented Garden Fountains of History

Water fountains were initially practical in purpose, used to bring water from canals or creeks to cities and villages, providing the inhabitants with clean water to drink, wash, and cook with. To produce water flow through a fountain until the later part of the 1800’s, and generate a jet of water, required the force of gravity and a water source such as a creek or reservoir, located higher than the fountain. The elegance and spectacle of fountains make them appropriate for historical memorials. If you saw the 1st fountains, you probably would not recognize them as fountains. Created for drinking water and ceremonial purposes, the initial fountains were simple carved stone basins. Natural stone basins are believed to have been 1st used around 2,000 BC.First Documented Garden Fountains History 057862912369871468.jpg The spraying of water emerging from small spouts was pushed by gravity, the sole power source builders had in those days. Drinking water was delivered by public fountains, long before fountains became elaborate public monuments, as pretty as they are practical. The people of Rome began creating elaborate fountains in 6 BC, most of which were bronze or natural stone masks of wildlife and mythological characters. A well-engineered system of reservoirs and aqueducts kept Rome's public fountains supplied with fresh water.Benefits Including Indoor Wall Water Fountain 75800617194.jpg
