Patio Water Feature



Mostly done with my little "water feature" for the patio. Little solar powered fountain with a broken fish decoration and some rocks I gathered from the yard and smashed with a hammer. 

Needs some more rocks in the top tray, but basically done with the fountain itself.

 
 

I also need to raise it up more or move the cement table away since it is kinda hidden by the table from the other side.  However, I half-plan to re-make the concrete benches and table I made with some better concrete benches and counter tops to go on each side of the grill to match, so may wait until I get around to that stuff before I worry about it.

The only problem is that it may be leaking from the bottom somehow, since the rest of the splash-over from filling it dried a while ago..... and it is still wet around the bottom.

Of course the solid bottom didn't *look* like it would leak, so I didn't test it first. Guess I will see what happens tomorrow and take it all apart if it is still wet underneath.

Got the big planter from Walmart, so should be easy to exchange..... But getting the Dollar Tree plastic trays that hold the stones out will be quite a challenge.
