What Garden Fountains Can be Made?
There’s nothing quite like sitting outside on your patio and hearing the soft trickle of water down a surface and into a reservoir below. Water features, including ponds, waterfalls, and especially fountains, are a great way to add a luxurious atmosphere to your patio or garden.
Of course, large pre-built fountains or having one custom made can get very, very pricey quickly. So why not build your own? You’ll find that it’s a project worth undertaking–you’ll get a great sense of satisfaction from finishing this project and sitting down beside it on a summer’s day.
An enormous urn is a great base for a water fountain since it adds a lot of height from the start. From there, smaller urns are stacked inside the rock-filled base. Instead of water trickling down the stones, a large center fountain rains water down all the way around the urn, which is constantly recycled.
Overturned Two Tier Fountain
This is a very simple fountain made out of two terra cotta planters. The bottom is much larger than the top, which is set nearly sideways so that the water can seep out and back into the bottom. This is a very quiet fountain, perfect for owners living in a very quiet area.
Tiered Fountain Over Pool
This is a simple tiered terra cotta fountain positioned above a small fish pond below. The pots are held just above the water by a tall planter holder positioned in the bottom reservoir. Planted all around the reservoir are thick, lush water-tolerant plants.
This small fountain is perfect to go on your tabletop and features a variety of differently sized planters to create the display. At the top is another planter with trailing vines, adding a bold green to the orange of the terra cotta. Stones are scattered throughout the display for the water to splash against, making the ambient sounds we love.
Bold Blue Stacked Fountain
This colorful, shiny fountain looks just as perfect nestled in a garden plot as it does on a patio. The three tiers are topped by a center fountain. The water runs down the top two tiers back into the bottom reservoir, where it is recycled upwards to the fountain again.
Bold Red Fountain
This fountain may look simple, but it’s a lovely tabletop or patio fountain that’s easy to construct. The single fountain stream splashes over the piled rocks, providing your relaxation space with plenty of soothing ambient sounds. And it’s small enough that you can take it indoors during the winter so that it doesn’t get damage.
These colorful planters have bubbling fountains rising from the narrow mouths, without any water ever dribbling down the sides. Each fountain is nestled inside of a larger garden planter and rimmed with bright green ground cover. Just gorgeous!
Strawberry Planter Fountain
This lovely fountain is constructed from a strawberry planter. The terra cotta planter is positioned above a small reservoir on top of two brick supports. Water bubbles out of the shallow bowl at the top and flows down the sides of the strawberry planter, rolling off of the many curves. The water then rolls over the brick supports and into the reservoir below.
