"We turned a ceramic planter into a garden water fountain. We had taken out a messy palm tree in the corner of our pool which left us an empty space. We love the sound of bubbling water when sitting out on the lanai and decided to incorporate a water fountain.You can do the same thing by adding a water fountain feature by your entry way in the front of your home or carve out a place in your backyard where you can add seating and this DIY garden fountain."
