From the blogger: "A big and over sized water fountain was the goal. Once looking into the prices for them, taking a store bought one and updating it was a great and more cost effective option. Using a wine barrel as the larger base to this tiered water fountain allows that desired large scale fountain. With the planter area flowers add the perfect pop of color! Simple steps are shared to update this store bought fountain and turned it into a great outdoor feature."

Are you wanting a big fountain but cannot afford one at this time then take a look at this one. They take a preexisting small one and add it to a wheel barrel planter. What a great idea because you can add some pretty flowers in bottom layer or even some herbs or even a fairy garden. This looks like a real fun project and looks great on a deck or even in a garden. Thanks for the idea.

Great inspiration and who wouldn't love a water fountain in their yard! I love the addition of a planter on the bottom tier which really makes this pretty! If you buy the water pump, you actually can use any containers to catch the water and make it your own, raising the various levels to insure the flow of water and just the right sound which is so peaceful and calming..... A great idea!
