Believe it or not, you can create your own beautiful solar fountain in just 30 minutes with all the beautiful cheap natural plants, decor elements that can already be found from your backyard or in your storage room that has been sitting there for years.
Everyone loves garden fountain, the sweet and relaxing bubbling sound of water it makes us feel we are sitting by a little creek in tropical paradise.
Making a fountain usually requires lots of work, materials and skills. But not anymore. Let us find how!
Select the best location of your outdoor solar fountain that has the most sun exposure. Cut the wire mesh with enough size to fit inside the pot.
Place the wire mesh inside the pot. Leaving about 2inches from the top of the pot or just enough space for the decors and the solar panel pump. (Use an edge beam clips to secure the mesh, if necessary).
Fill the pot with water, leaving enough space for your decor elements. The water will rise once you added your decor elements.
This is the most interesting part! Fill the top of the wire mesh with plants, stones, decor balls, fresh flowers etc, leaving enough space for the water pump solar panel.
I collected some stones from our walkway. Soak them in the water for few minutes and rinse them well.
Here I used old lamps I found from our storage room. We got them when we bought our house. I found 2 of them with different sizes, perfect to create contrast on the fountain.
Place solar fountain pump. Make sure that the pump is submerged in the water and the panel is facing the sun. Add more water if needed.
Finish it up with fresh leaves and flowers.
This solar pump does not store solar energy, which means the fountain will be off when the sun is not shinning on the solar panel.
