Agrippa's Eye-popping, but Mostly Forgotten Water-Lifting System

Agrippa's Eye-popping, Mostly Forgotten Water-Lifting System 381023435005813.jpeg Agrippa's Eye-popping, but Mostly Forgotten Water-Lifting System The praise Agrippa’s water-lifting invention earned from Andrea Bacci in 1588 was temporary. It could be that the Acqua Felice, the second of Rome’s earliest modern conduits made the system obsolete when it was attached to the Villa Medici in 1592. Its application might have been short but Camillo Agrippa’s creation attained a significant place in history as the most amazing water-lifting system of its type in Italy prior to the modern era. Renaissance gardens of the late 16th century were home to works like musical fountains, scenographic water demonstrations and water caprices (giochi d’acqua), but these were not brimming with water in ways that defied gravitation itself.

Your Garden: The Perfect Spot for a Fountain

Your Garden: The Perfect Spot for a Fountain The addition of a wall water feature or an outdoor garden fountain is a great way to adorn your yard or garden design.Garden: Perfect Spot Fountain 80975825448519593118.jpg Any number of present-day designers and fountain artisans have found ideas in the fountains and water features of the past.

The benefit of having a garden fountain extends beyond its beauty as it also appeals to birds and other wildlife, in addition to harmonizing the ecosystem with the water and moisture it releases into the atmosphere.

Wall fountains are a good alternative if your yard is small because they do not need much space as compared to a spouting or cascading fountain. Either a stand-alone fountain with an even back and an attached basin set against a fence or a wall, or a wall-mounted style which is self-contained and hangs on a wall, are some of the options from which you can choose. A water feature can be added to an existing wall if you include some kind of fountain mask as well as a basin to collect the water at the bottom. It is best not to undertake this job yourself as skilled plumbers and masons are more suitable to do this kind of work.
