Looking for Concrete Fountain


Recommended Posts

New or used. Not for water, but for planting so a leak wouldn't be a problem. No pump or plumbing necessary. Good condition.

Do you want concrete or cantera stone?  If the later try the cantera stone yard next to Tobolandia. They had several in stock the last time I was there or they can custom make one for you.

There is one setting outside my condo that was taken out of the atrium before we moved in and was supposed to be installed in the yard but I think now it will be removed. I don't know it's ultimate fate but if you like I will email the owner and ask if it for sale or perhaps free?

I will definitely look at the concrete places around. I'm afraid the Cantera stone would outshine the plants. Beautiful fountains for sure.

I have done what you plan to do sunnyvmx. May I suggest that you line the fountain base with landscape fabric to prevent the loss of soil. I lined it first then filled about half way with gravel and have potted plants sitting on top of the gravel. The smaller pieces of the fountain (stems and bowls), I turned into "mushrooms" in other parts of the garden. It's always in transition. I'm trying to figure out how to get the middle piece out, it won't break so I'm thinking concrete saw. It's a learning process. Have fun!

I seem to need a challenge or project going all the time. Two dogs, 400 plants, 60 fish should be enough. Even 5 husbands (trained 'em, sold 'em, got a good price.) Now this:

I agree. Have to try it. This low humidity is defeating me in the plant room. Even with 2 water fountains and humidifier. I may just give up and switch to succulents and cactus. I see a lot of bus trips to the cactus nurseries in my future.

I would like to see what she has. I'm flexible with my time. See if she wants me to contact her to make an appointment. I appreciate the trouble you've gone to for me.
