Now that the worst of the heat has broken for most of us, it's time for outdoor projects to get underway again. In the fall, that generally means buttoning things up for winter or preparing something nice for next spring. This project falls into the latter category:We saw a bubble fountain on a tour of a local elementary school several years ago. It was installed at ground level and almost appeared as a natural spring. We've been smitten with it ever since, but didn't know what to call it until we stumbled on this DIY from FreshHome Ideas.
It requires only a fountain kit, a water well set into the ground, and rocks to cover it and act as a place for water to trickle down and make its magical, relaxing sound. Now, there's nothing stopping us from having a baby like this up and running for next spring!
