13 Lovely Water Feature Projects
Posted By Tipnut On March 18, 2011 @ 9:02 am In DIY Projects,Green Thumb Projects,Outdoors | 1 Comment
If you don’t have the space or the time to devote to a garden pond, consider a small water fountain or container garden, they’re easier to maintain and just as lovely. Here is a selection of free tutorials and projects that I’ve handpicked from around the ‘net, most are very simple to put together and some even include plant ideas and recipes to try. A few of these projects have been previously featured on Tipnut and moved here for one handy project sheet, enjoy!
With Stacked Rocks : Fountain-ize most any leftover garden ornament or drill holes in a stack of rocks you found on-site, turning it into an enduring monument to tranquility.
Bubbling Urn : Materials needed include a water feature urn, large terracotta pan, pond pump, plastic-coated grille, pond liner, cobbles, hose and bricks.
Pyramidal Pots : Super easy to make! Stacked pots filled with a pump and filled to the brim produce sounds reminiscent of lapping waves.
Soothing : Made with two glazed pots (a shallow bowl nests snugly inside the larger pot), a bucket, and a small recirculating pump.
Homemade Patio Fountain : Made with river rocks, a large garden pot, hardware cloth and a fountain kit.
How To Make A Stock Tank Pond : Step-by-step instructions from digging out the location and filling it with plants and water.
