DIY Backyard Water Fountain

DIY Backyard Water Fountain | angiethefreckledrose.com

As an avid gardener, I'm constantly looking for ways to spruce up my landscape.  DIY Backyard Water Fountain | angiethefreckledrose.comI strive to take my backyard area to the next level every season.  Finding ways to do it myself and adding in some visual interest, all while maintaining a modest budget are top priority.  I have to admit, starting projects from scratch can seem like a daunting task.  You stop to look at beautiful pictures in magazines or online and get discouraged not knowing where to start.  I've had an interest in creating a calm and relaxing space featuring a water fountain for some time now.  I wasn't sure where to begin, and it felt like it was out of my reach.  That's where Aquascape comes in! 

Aquascape takes water gardening to new heights offering fountains, waterfalls, backyard ponds and even small water features perfect for patios!  No matter what style you choose, they offer kits and simple instructions to make installation a breeze.  Whether you are looking to add a decorative water feature to an existing garden, build your own around it or set it up to stand alone, there is something for you!  The kits include everything you need to get your fountain up and running in no time.  A trip to my local home improvement store to pick up the desired stones was all I needed, and I was good to go!  If I can do it, you can do it!

Aquascape Stacked Slate Urn | angiethefreckledrose.com

Setting up my new Aquascape Stacked Slate Urn

Getting Started

I began my project by looking online and choosing my new decorative water feature.  I instantly fell in love with the Aquascape Small Stacked Slate Urn.  It is 25" in diameter and 39.5" high.  The perfect size for my outdoor space.  Since my pre-existing gardens were already full of flowers and shrubs, I decided I wanted to design an entirely new garden to incorporate my feature.  The urn is lightweight, around 40 pounds, and is made out of natural rock veneer.  I really like how you have the option to easily move it if necessary in the future.  It is also durable, and will never fade or chip.  I was stunned when I opened my Aquascape package to see how it truly did look like real rock, and I didn't even break my back!  It's always a good sign when a project starts out with no broken body parts.  Since I opted for the kit, it also included a water basin, a pump and a liner skirt. 

DIY Backyard Water Fountain | angiethefreckledrose.comPutting the fountain together was very straightforward, and I had it set up in it's new spot in less than a day.  The most time consuming process was digging the hole.  Now, let me just tell you, I am from an area in New England that is known for its terribly rocky soil full of boulders that dwarf my two chihuahuas in size.  I did not look forward to this dig, and I knew what was coming especially since the area of my yard I wanted to use was known for these massive rocks and tree roots.   It did take some elbow grease, but I had some help getting those rocks out of the way.  Really took less time than I imagined.  I did, however, dig up some giant natural rocks that would cost me a pretty penny to purchase at a store!

New England rock...pretty to look at, not fun to dig up!

Once the digging was done and the water basin was in place, we filled it with water and tested out the pump.  It was running in no time!  Now it was time to start designing my new water feature garden!  If you are looking for easy instructions to set up this water feature, I've included the step by step video below.  For more, check out this helpful video that shows you how to create the perfect paradise with fountainscapes by clicking here.

Creating A Water Feature Garden

DIY Backyard Water Fountain | angiethefreckledrose.comI wanted to add some visual interest with different textures and natural elements around my new fountain.  I chose to surround my feature with smaller sized rocks. Using rock helps cover up your liner skirt, and also helps drain your water back into the basin.  I chose to mix a few bags of river rock with pond stones, and I absolutely love the outcome!  Make sure when adding stones to wash them first.  They are covered in grit that isn't so good for your pump.  Since I wanted to add a brand new garden, I also purchased and added some bags of soil to help my future plants stay nice and healthy!

Now came the fun part!  Choosing plants to surround my water fountain to really make it pop.  Since I was beginning my project as the summer season came to a close, I wanted to choose some fall blooming plants along with classic shrubs.  I made sure the group of plants I picked had a variety of heights and colors for visual interest.

Coppertina Ninebark

I decided to add height by incorporating ornamental millet.  This spiky striking annual grows up to 5' tall and has a vivid dark-purple foliage.  Next, I added the perennial deciduous shrub, Coppertina ninebark. It's foliage is brown and orange with white flowers blooming in early summer.  It can grow anywhere from 6 to 10' tall and attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies to your garden.  Now that I had some height, I wanted to add some bright colors.

Pots filled with tricolored chrysanthemums

I planted one of my favorite perennials, pink Autumn Joy sedum.  The great benefits of adding sedum are it's beautiful texture, resistance to drought and how appealing they are to bees.  When I chose my plant at the store, it had a bumble bee resting atop the flowers. When I came home, I found out that same bumble hitched a ride with us!  Apparently it was worth the trip, because this insistent insect stayed with the flowers for quite some time! After this, I added some gorgeous annual pots of tricolored chrysanthemums.  Each pot came with a mix of yellow, orange and red mums perfect for fall!

Next, I added two tried and true perennial Green Velvet boxwood shrubs.  They will retain their rich color over the winter adding year round interest.  This shrub will reach about 4' in height at maturity, and is deer resistant. Lastly, I added two perennial Carnival Fall Festival coral bells.  These plants have green and scarlet foliage and bloom tiny white flowers throughout spring and summer.  It is a very easy plant to grow and tolerates both heat and drought.  

DIY Backyard Water Fountain | Spring bulbs | angiethefreckledrose.com

Spring bulbs I planted

I want my new water feature garden to be blooming year round.  I decided fall is the perfect time to plant spring bulbs!  I dug a ring shape around the garden, and planted a mix of daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and alliums.  I also added in some peat moss and compost to help the bulbs grow strong roots.  After the bulbs, flowers and shrubs were all planted, I added a nice layer of mulch.  It really gives it that final touch, and will protect all the plants during the winter months.  I already can't wait for springtime to arrive so I can enjoy all my new blooms.  I'm also planning on adding summer blooming bulbs so the vibrant colors will continue month after month!

It really is so relaxing and peaceful to sit outside with a mug of warm mulled cider and listen to the trickle of water from the fountain.  Completing a DIY backyard water feature with the help of Aquascape really inspired me to get creative with my outdoor space.  Now I have visions of expanding it next season, maybe adding an arbor close by, and even stone bench!

Illuminate The Night

I loved looking out the window and seeing it during the day, but I also wanted to enjoy my feature at night.  I went out and purchased three solar lights and positioned them in a half circle towards the front.  Viewing the water fountain at night glimmering in the soft glow really makes it look magical.

DIY Backyard Water Fountain | angiethefreckledrose.com

I really had so much fun putting together my new water fountain and creating a whole new outdoor space.  Trying something new always motivates me to visualize an area in a way I never thought I would.  Sometimes I find that once you get that ball rolling, it turns into something better than what you expected!  Do you have a water feature or pond in your yard?  If not, have you ever thought of invigorating your gardens, porch or backyard with one?  Tell me all about it in the comment section below or tweet me any pictures you have @thefreckledrose.  I want to give a huge thanks to Aquascape for providing me with such a fantastic feature!  I highly encourage you to check out their website.  The holidays are right around the corner, and these fountain features definitely would make the top of any nature lover's wishlist. They are affordable, easy to install and simply stunning!  You can also find them on Facebook frequently posting drool-worthy videos and pictures.

    This is absolutely beautiful! I have always wanted to do this in my yard. It really looks fantastic. I’m in New England too so I know what you mean about the rocky soil! I just get hubby to dig holes for me :). I like how you styled it with those plants and the mums for fall. Really impressive!

    We have a natural area in our yard that my husband and I have been clearing out. We have removed all of the ground brush leaving the natural canopy of trees and have started planning for a siting area. We discussed putting in pavers or something like it. I suggested a pea stone path with a fountain like this. Then raised gardens of shade tolerant plants along with some nice benches.

    I have been wanting to do a fountain so badly! I had a small pond at our old house, but it was a lot of work to keep clean. I was thinking a fountain would look great, but be less maintenance. I love the way yours turned out!

    This thing looks classic–way more talent than I could ever put into a stone garden project! I love the way Aquascape put the the timelessness of antiquity into such a modern style! I like the way you did the outdoor thing, however, I’m more of an “in-body” and look forward to transforming such an outdoor piece into an inviting indoor “tranqa-space”. Our home doesn’t have a fireplace; I think this is the perfect replacement — with this, I can see the family gathering in the calmness and beauty of our open-space bonus room, with this as the center peice, for catch-up talks, game days, and romantic movie nights with the beau. . . wow. Thank you, Angie, for bringing that wonderful thought to mind and for introducing us, through this giveaway, to Aquascape and their wonderful products. Good luck all and happy winning.

    What a fantastic space! You’ve done a beautiful job with it. We’re in the process now of creating a firepit/water feature in our backyard (in a space where there was a four tiered garden at one point), and while it won’t quite fit there, I think that fountain would be beautiful in our front bed. Or near the pergola in the back. Actually come to think of it, there are a ton of places in our yard where that would work lol!

    This sounds like such a fun DIY project, and I absolutely LOVE water foundations. It stems from my love of water (I’m a pisces) and also my love for waterfalls. Water foundations remind me of waterfalls, except foundations are usually (if not always) manmade. This is a really cool idea, and one I need to follow through with because it would make the background so nice! xx Adaleta Avdic

    What a beautiful water feature garden!! I absolutely love how it turned out (and how you added lights so you could see it at night)! You made it sound so easy setting up the water fountain with that kit! I’m so surprised you did it in under a day! Unfortunately, I live in an apartment so I can’t have my own water fountain or garden (yet), but I think it’s something my dad would love to do one day. His back yard could certainly use a little sprucing up, something to give it some focus and personality!

    I bought my home 2 years ago and soon found out that the large Ash Treehad Ash bore disese. Not only was this money I had not planned on but also this was the main shade for the south/front of my home. So my entire budget for the front of the house went to removal and having a rather small Maple tree planted. There ia a hole where the stump was from the Ash tree and this beautiful fountain would be a beautiful remedy to that issue.

    I love my house. I really love it, and it is home to me. But we have to work on the yard. There is so much I want and need to do . And this would be such a push to get that done. What better way to work in the yard than to have a beautiful piece to work around. Thank you for the chance.

    This is beautiful! I love being able to add to my back yard without it being high maintenance….especially needing sun! I have too many trees so flowers cannot grow back there very well and we have to be creative!

    Love the fountain… I have the perfect spot for it in my backyard.
