Make a Water Fountain

Written by Hilary on September 26th, 2006

I know summer is ending and fall is upon us, but you can still add features to your yard and garden in cool weather too!

This simple concrete fountain will work just as well indoors as out. Using succulents for color and texture is a good choice because they will do well outdoors in warmer climates, and really well indoors in colder climates.

Simply find some concrete containers of different sizes and shapes, and cut a square notch in the top and middle boxes. Stack them however is pleasing to you. Put your fountain pump in (they cost around $25), and run the tubing up to the top box. Add water and turn it on.

Adding water to your home’s entry way, garden spot or any room is really pretty simple.

    Won’t water eventually saturate and leak through the concrete?

    I’ve never had that happen. If you are worried about it, you can always coat the inside of the concrete with a sealant or line it with plastic.
