A Backyard Fountain When You Have Limited Space

Imagine the sound of trickling water to sooth your senses as you step out into your backyard. Glittering goldfish swim about a graceful statue, overlooking a pond. Sound like an impossibility in the tight quarters of your residence? It's not. Even if you are tight on space, you still can install a backyard fountain into your own home for under $1,000 if you decide to do it yourself. If you hire out help, expect to pay about $2,000. All you need is a fountain statue, tubing, pond liner, pond padding, submersible pump with 200 gallon per hour capacity and bricks. With all those materials, you can create a 4' x 4' pond. Add koi or goldfish and your at-home oasis is complete. For do-it-yourselfers, you can finish your own backyard fountain in just a day.
