Bubble Fountain in a Pot

Build a fountain in your garden!
I’ve been wondering how I should turn a tiny urban backyard into a tranquil space. I wanted to add a small water feature to my garden, first I thought about a shallow stream but then I came to realize its construction was impossible. Then the image of a Japanese garden with a variety of plants, winding paths and a burbling fountain appeared in my mind. The soft splash of garden fountain brings the thoughts of inner peace.

I’ve found a simple solution on Scattered Thoughts Of A Crafty Mom. A few steps should be followed and Jamie’s Bubble Fountain in a Pot is ready in no time. When I finish mine, I’ll surround it with billowy grasses, succulents and I also want to take my Modern Zen Gardens outside for the summer time.

If you need some motion and at the same time a peaceful retreat in your garden this design is just for you. When you find these two in your oasis let us know.
