Simple Urn

Simple UrnI like the simplicity of this urn fountain because although it certainly is a beautiful and eye-catching feature in a garden, it isnt too fancy or overbearing. Just make sure that your pot or urn is specifically designed to remain outdoors so that this will last and make it through all weather conditions.

Water Wall

Water WallThis outdoor water wall is without a doubt one of the most striking and visually stunning garden projects I have ever laid eyes on. And the fact that you can make it with your own two hands just makes it so much more attractive, in my opinion. This will cost you around $250 to $300 which peanuts compared to the price if you were to buy it already made.

Recycled Water Wall

Recycled Water WallIf you have one of those round glass-top tables that youre not sure what to do with, you should really consider using that glass piece to create this beautiful water wall of course, a square shape would work, too. Repurposing materials will make this an affordable build.

Stone Pond and Fountain

Stone Pond and FountainAll you really need is one open weekend to create this lovely pond and fountain feature. The tutorial lays out the steps very clearly, so the project itself really isnt that difficult to get done. If you have to buy the stone the whole project will probably cost around $200, but try to get the stone for free so that you can significantly lower your costs. If you really love working with stone, you could also make yourself this fantastic stone fire pit.

Tiered Pot Fountain

Tiered Pot FountainThis fun project is a nice quick and easy one since you dont really need all that many materials and tools. Take the time to trawl the gardening stores to find the perfect pots. And if you dont have too much space and want to downsize, you can always use just two pots instead of three (alternatively, you can add another pot if you want it even bigger).

Teapot Fountain

Teapot Fountain
I am a serious tea drinker, so this adorable teapot fountain is right up my alley! I absolutely love the combination of the rusty vintage teapot and wooden whisky barrel (you can use a wine barrel, too, of course) it gives it that charming rustic look that I love so much.

Artesian Fountain

Artesian FountainThis particular artesian fountain will only take about two days to make and isnt actually too big of a project, so dont feel intimated by this one. This design makes use of a gravel-filled reservoir as opposed to a collection pond, the maintenance on the whole thing will be rather low.

Mini Water Garden

Mini Water GardenIf you dont have the space, money or time to build a pond but still desperately want a similar water feature, then this mini pond in a container is something you should strongly consider. The water lilies and lettuce look so pretty and calming in there, and thanks to its smaller size, this is the perfect way to beautify your porch.

Canoe Feature

Canoe FeatureIsnt this just awesome?! I love the playfulness of the idea of filling a canoe with water instead placing it in water. It has a small submersible filter and is even home to some happy little goldfish. You wont have to line since canoes are built to be waterproof in the first place, and you can have some real fun with the plants and decorating.
