Hi MF thank you for your kind comments. The water feature does have a pump. It is on the side of the garage wall so hubby drilled a hole through the wall and fed the lead through for the pump and then he drilled a hole into the pot for the water pipe and obviously filled the holes in the bottom of the pot. It does have large pebbles in it to cover the pump and it has a few plants growing in it. It is the sound of running water that I like. You can easily do the same without a pump - a half barrel or a pot would be fine and just fill with plants. I have been thinking about doing that so I could grow water lilys.
We do drain the pot in the winter and take the pump out and clean it and put it away for the winter. I am not sure how a terracotta pot would be over the winter full of water so not wanted to chance it. You could spend the winter months looking at a few ideas and make it your spring project MF. Good luck.
Thank you Christy Rose, Muvs Dashwood and Curlybonce for your comments.
