Make your backyard a magical place with a darling water fountain. They're easy to make and will look beautiful in your yard. It's super important to take care of your backyard decor to ensure it stays in the best shape possible. Adding a DIY backyard fountain to your home is not only useful for the birds and little outdoor creatures to swim in, but you'll love the relaxing noise it makes as the water drips down the sides. If you don't know where to add one, place it in your garden to give you garden some love and water!

From the blogger: "Water features can add so much to your patio or backyard. Knowing how to properly maintain and care for them can keep them working and in good shape throughout the year. If you care for them from the start, it's not too hard. Keeping the water feature clean is a HUGE part of the process. Soap and water can help quite a bit but sometimes, you just need to do take it a step farther to really get the piece clean."

I am looking into maybe getting a fountain this year and I was wondering how to care for it and the way to maintain it and this was some good information on how todo it. I was thinking of a large fountain but may start with a small one to see how that goes first.I use to have a pond with fish on my patio until a owl killed my fish and put a hole in my liner. I miss the sound of the water and my fish so maybe a fountain will be the way to go. Thanks for information.

Don't use soap where animals drink bathe. Just scrub rinse.
