DIY fountain | I used an urn, larger planter and the pump suggested in this pin. It was not 'easy' because I made it more complicated (wire mesh, rock beds) but it worked very well. It was wonderful having a garden fountain this summer. Keep in mind...when it was first being built, there was standing water in it and we ended up with mosquito larvae. Ugh. After cleaning that out, we left the pump on 24-7 which raised the electric bill. Choose your battles.
