A water fountain in your garden is original, eye-catching, and relaxing. You can sit by the fountain and listen to the water while gazing at your beautiful plants and flowers. The landscaped garden looks even more exotic when a water fountain is added. It is not difficult to build a garden water fountain if the following steps are used.
You Will Need:
Step 1: Find a spot in the yard for the water fountain and prepare the ground. Planting the fountain will secure it. Use the shove or spade to dig a hole that fits the container bowl and place the bowl into the hole.
Step 2: Attach the water tubing to the water pump. Place this pump near an edge of the bowl. Balance and secure the pump at the bottom of the container using paving stones, rocks, or bricks.
Step 3: Thread the water tubing into a hole found on the bottom of the plant container. Run the tubing over the edge of the container.
Step 4: Put the plant container into the planter bowl. If a hole does not exist in the center of the planter bowl, use the drill and a drill bit larger than the tubing to drill this hole. Thread the water tubing into the hole in the planter bowl. Place the planter bowl atop the plant container.
Step 5: Install and secure the water pump nozzle with the connector and the clip. Seal the edge of the nozzle using aquarium sealant. Let this set.
Step 6: Fill half the container bowl with decorative pebbles or rocks. If you wish to add greenery, use a few aquatic plants.
Step 7: Hide the cord under the ground using mulch or digging a hole in the dirt.
Step 8: Fill the container bowl almost to its rim with water. Fill the planter bowl with water. Plug the water pump into a ground fault interrupted electrical outlet and water should begin pumping.
