DIY fountain for front landscape

I am so happy with our water feature that I created! I wanted blue and something different than you could buy. Not to mention I wasn't going to pay crazy money they cost! So we made one!
Time: 4 Hours Cost: $60.00 Difficulty: Moderate
It took a couple of tries to get it right!
I didn't get the proportion right the first time! ;(
So I raised the second tier! Much better!
It took 3 main flower pots, cement pineapple (that I spray painted champagne)
One pump
PVC pipe and waterproof tape to cover bottom hole
Two pots (turned upside down) drilled holes in bottom one for water flow for pump
I love what it has added to our landscape! Now I just need everything to bloom!

    Love this. Do you have detailed instructions for putting this together along with the pot sizes? Including pot sizes that were turned upside down. Where did you find a cement pineapple? Do you use distilled water or is the water supplied via hose?

      Here is a rough detail. I bought the pots I liked making sure the sizes made sense. The pineapple I found at a place that sells yard statues and stuff. The pots that are turned upside down I just used what I thought would work. The bottom one is

    Love your flower pot water fountain. Unlike the one I made I noticed you sealed the top two pots so the water overflows into the bottom pot and re-circulates. Very pretty and I love the glazed pots!

    Yes, my father talked about Logan. I remember once as a child he took my mother and brothers and I to a relative's home there. All I remember is the coal. My great-grandfather was Marshall Spurlock and I believe my great, great grandfather was Seth. Any
