Every outdoor setting deserves a beautiful focal point, like a water fountain. Begin by purchasing a pot, plantainer, a poly planter bowl, spray paint, pavers, decorative river rock and stepping stones, a fountain pump, hose clamp, sealant tubing and a drill. Begin by painting the rim of the pot to match the container. While that drys, dig a hole big enough for the plantainer. Position the pump to one side of the plantainer, then attach 5 feet of one half inch tubing to the nozzle. Now stack pavers in the bottom of the plaintainer. Feed the tube through the terra cotta pot. Drill a 1/2 inch hole in the center of the poly planter bowl. Feed and attach all tubing and attach with a clamp. Insert the poly planter bowl, the fountain spout and seal with sealant. Now add decorative stone inside the planter. Fill the plantainer with water, then the pot with water. Plug in the fountain. Next hide the fountain wire with mulch and lay stepping stones around the fountain, and you're done.
