Garden Gate Fountain


This was made using a garden gate, an old red wagon, and a few watering cans. I've been scouring garage sakes all summer looking for the right pieces to put my fountain together! We had the red wagon. I had originally thought an old galvanized bucket would be the "holder" for the pump, but the wagon worked better! I am so pleased with how it turned out! Total cost: about $125, but could be done I think much cheaper using junk you have.

    @Patsy--the wind does blow horribly here in West Texas! This fountain is up against a wall under the porch in our backyard with high fence so it is somewhat protected. We only use it in the summer. I'm ready to start getting the yard pretty again for summer!

    Nice! I love your cute little garden ladder! I'm on the look out for an old wooden stepladder for my small yard.I don't have much room to spread out so I thought I'd go up and a ladder with baskets & shelves made sense to me.
