Nothing is more relaxing than the music of moving water in the garden. But finding a water feature to complement your style can be tough. So why not make a custom fountain out of a beautiful piece of pottery? Glazed pots come in every size, shape, and color imaginable—and making them into fountains is simple.
Pot fountains consist of an underground, waterproof basin; sturdy grating; and a pot of your choice. Water is pumped from the underground reservoir up through the pot, where it overflows and disappears back into the ground. With no exposed pool of water, this type of water feature is safe for children, and birds and other wildlife—including the family pets—love to drink from it. Creating your own unique fountain is easy and fun, and you’ll love the statement it makes in your garden.
