More Plant Talk

Looking to spice up your back yard garden?
This week’s Plant Talk walks you through a do-it-yourself water feature that looks good and sounds good too. 

KEVIN: Last week we took a look at setting up some little bubbler water features, this week we’re going to take a look at something I started over a year ago and is just into its completion stages.

KEVIN: Now this was my first attempt at a water feature, and I have to admit, it was probably one of the funnest things I’ve ever done. It’s had its challenges and it certainly changed as I went along. Now, I wasn’t after having a large waterfall per se, but I wanted the sound. So I came up with several different streams that come together and connect. So depending on where you’re at in the water feature, you’re always going to hear a different trickle.

I also wanted to create more of an art effect in my water feature, so you see this large kettle drum? I haven’t even decided what I’m going to do with it yet. As well as this circle. If you look closely through there, depending on what angle, it almost creates a picture frame.

KEVIN: And since your water feature’s going to need extra water from time to time, rather than have something plumed away in a little compartment, I decided to add something a little more unique.

KEVIN: And let’s not forget about the plants. What I’m finding is what really brings the water feature together and makes it part of the landscape is the different textures, styles, sizes, uh, the blooms of plants. It’s been a great experience I hope you all decide to build one, thanks for watching Plant Talk, we’ll see you again next time.
