How can you build a beautiful fountain yourself?

Before you start building, you should determine the optimal location!

First dig a hole for the masonry bucket! Make sure that the surface is flat so that the pump is straight and can work optimally!

Then fill the cavities between the masonry bucket and the earth wall with earth! This ensures that the bucket stands firmly.

Then dig the hole so deep that the edge of the masonry bucket is a few centimeters above the edge of the bed.

Place the water pump in the masonry bucket and fix it with a stone! Make sure that the hose of the water pump can be guided through the hole.

Use small stones, which stabilize the big one! If you wish, you can also put a metal grid on the masonry bucket! The grid serves as a base for stones, gravel and decorations.

Knock four square timbers into the ground around the bucket and use them as support points! This prevents the grille from bending!

Lead out the power cable and decorate the fountain with decorative gravel! To do this, bury a pipe in the ground and lay the cable through the pipe!

Then fill the masonry bucket with sufficient water! Use a hose or watering can for this! Cover the water pump with water!

Finally, choose plants for the fountain! Plant the fountain with different types of plants!

The beautiful fountain is ready! Very easy task, isn’t it?
