Water-Lover - Water gardens and fountains bring light and life into outdoor rooms. Install a simple fountain like this one in a single weekend and prepare to enjoy it for years to come. The bonus? Maintenance is easy: Top off the reservoir once or twice a week with a garden hose. Use a scrub brush to remove algae on the urn, or use a few drops of pet- and wildlife-safe algicide once a week.
