Most outside wall fountains come in "for-dummies" style kits that will provide you everything you need to properly install it. In the kit you will find all the needed essentials: a submersible pump, hoses and basin, or reservoir. Depending on its size, the basin can typically be hidden quite easily amongst the plants. Once installed, wall fountains typically only need to have some light upkeep and regular cleaning.

Replace and clean the water on a regular basis. Leaves, branches or dirt are types of rubbish which should be cleared away quickly. Furthermore, outdoor fountains should always be shielded from freezing temperatures in winter. If kept outdoors, your pump could split as a result of freezing water, so bring it inside during the winter. To sum up, your outdoor wall fountain will continue to be a great add-on to your garden if you keep it well cared for and well maintained.
