Beautiful! Did you make that yourself? From hypertufa? I've made a few small pots and a trough.

Did you make this? It looks so professional.

I do like the multiple tires that will create nice sound to complement the look.
Cannot see in the picture, but it's almost asking for a spot to sit down and enjoy
the view. The spot looks shady, or is it overcast? I usually see water features in
full sun, but on a hot day, shade is where I try to be.

Yes my husband and I made this. Im glad yall like it. It is made of concrete. We did not feel hypertufa would stand up to the dimensions of the project. We poured it into plywood forms with chicken wire reinforcement. We used molding on inside of the form to give it some dimension. We used PVC and PVC couplings to hold the opening for the tubing and to join the tiers together. Some of the concrete came off during our unmolding but I think it gives it a "been there for awhile" look. It is in a shady spot under a dogwood tree near he entrance to my house. I cant wait to plant the area. Thank you for taking a look. It has me itching to do more. LOL

Fantastic job! I've been looking at fountains for inspiration for my own project. Any chance you have step-by-step pictures? I'm still not sure how to do the "plumbing". Thanks for posting!

How did you color the concrete? Was it in the mix or just stained afterwards?
