Today we have gone searching the internet to find different ideas for water features that involve pots! Here are our three favourites, which show a range of different ideas.

1. Eros Water Feature – Egyptian themed pouring pots with a bright LED light in each pot to make it look great day or night.  We like how small this one is, so would be great tucked in a neat corner to make a feature out of it.

2. Grecian Urn – This pot is available in Australia and works fantastically as the feature on this garden pool.  Of course you could use any pot to create this look.

3. Solar Powered Blue Ceramic Cascade Water Fountain – This is a gorgeous pot fountain idea and what is even better is that it recycles all the water it uses and is operated using solar power.  Each of the bowls and pots are glazed terracotta, which rest on sturdy metal frames.  The solar panel is then placed some distance away.

So those are three different ideas to get you thinking.  But the best thing about creating a water feature with pots is that you can create it yourself!  Here we give you some links to water feature plans and designs that we like!

Making a Single Pot Fountain

eHow provide a step by step single pot fountain guide on their website.  You can access the instructions by clicking on the link above.  This is a simple but beautiful fountain that would work perfectly in a corner of a garden or as a centre piece.

Our second single pot fountain guide comes from Better Homes and Gardens.

Multi Pot Fountains

eHow also has a small three clay pot fountain that would look good on a front porch or other small area and our final guide to creating a larger feature three pot fountain is this biggie from Matha Stewart’s website.

Remember when planning a water feature to consider water conservation.  Also ensure that your water is moving to avoid it becoming a breeding ground for mosquitos and other insects.
