reading like crazy - can't find my answer though!
Hi Pond People,
I'm putting in a pondless fountain, using a heavy plastic barrel (the brightest blue imaginable)for the reservoir. Finally got the hole perfect, and have placed the barrel into the ground. Barrel is 19" diameter. My questions are about covering it. Got some scrap grating (two pieces)which I cut into half-circle, about 2" wider than the opening. Found some smallish, various-sized rocks to cover it. BUT can't seem to get the grating to not show, first prob. Second is wondering how one accesses the pump for cleaning. Plan no waterfall - just a spurter/bubbler which I hope to get by using 1/2" copper piping - maybe two pieces of pipe, using a copper T fitting.
If this was your can of worms, what would you do???
Hope I haven't lost you by being too wordy. Can't wait for this little splashy spot by my patio.
