My Smart Pond® Fountain Is Finished

I received product from Smart Pond to create a fountain in my yard. 

I have to say that this project with Smart Pond® has been one of the most fun ones I have done since I started blogging. It was so easy to do, and the results are so cute! It adds a lot of beauty to my yard, for surprisingly little money. If you wanted to create a pond like this one in your yard, without a wooden platform, it would cost under $100. That is quite a lot of bang for the buck.

Next summer, we are going to add to the flower bed, so that it goes all the way around the pond platform. We planted perennials in this bed, and will add annuals in containers next summer for instant color. In addition to adding a huge pop of color to our yard, the babbling of the water from the fountain is quite soothing when we are sitting on the porch. That same sound attracts birds, who come to visit our feeders. We are hoping to also bring butterflies to our yard with the butterfly bushes, and other colorful flowers chosen for just that purpose.

Here is a look at the fountain. You can also hear the water as it drops back into the barrel. I love this fountain. You can find the Smart Pond products at Lowes.
