    I’ve been on the hunt for a wall fountain and love the one highlighted in this article! It’s the 6th photo in the article. Despite searching, I could find no info on it, name, maker, price. I love it and was hoping someone could help me track it down. I’d be much obliged!

    My husband and I made our pond a few years ago. My question is how do you keep predators out of the pond if you have fish in it and also do you suggest barley to keep the water clean?I appreciate any suggestions. Thank you in advance.
