The wa­ter fea­ture is a sooth­ing focal point.

DO

in­stall a wa­ter­tight lin­ing. Emily slid a sheet of 9×12-foot pond liner into the 3×6-foot hole, trimmed it to fit, then se­cured it with brick pavers from Home De­pot.

DON’T

let your pump get clogged. Emily placed her sub­mersible pump on cin­der blocks to keep it above any de­bris. An over­turned ce­ramic planter hides the hose and cord, shel­ters the pump, and pro­vides a base for a dec­o­ra­tive bowl to hold the foun­tain.

DO

re­pur­pose items. Emily found a con­crete ball at HomeGoods, had a hard­ware store drill a hole through it, then ran the pump hose up through the planter and bowl and into the ball.
