DIY fountain for front landscape

23,978 Views
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: Medium
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!
