Many sunken barrels come in wood, surrounded by a metal strap. If you decide to submerge these wood water fountains, it's best to leave an edge above ground because this creates a more interesting design aesthetic. In addition, the raised edge helps prevent wildlife like mice from falling into the water fountains if they decide to take a drink. The sunken barrel water fountains work well for colder climates, where water has less chance of freezing below ground. When completed, these water fountains provide years of years of beauty to your garden with only basic care.
