Idea #1: Faux Stone-Flanked Multi-Tier Water Feature
Because the water within your outdoor fountain can be pumped as far as 100 feet or more from the pump itself, this opens up lots of design opportunities.
For a multi-tiered water feature, use GenStone faux stone panels and corner pieces to create the ‘shell’ of the fountain. This is best done using treated plywood or timber for the basic structure, and then adding the stacked stone GenStone panels using your choice of wood screws.
Within the ‘shell’, you’ll want to create at least two different stages for water accumulation. Get creative here! Consider using a natural stone bowl or basin with a runoff that feeds another basin of a larger or smaller size.
Keep in mind where the lowest point of your outdoor water fountain will be, and be sure to place your pump in this location.
Idea #2: Single-Pedestal Stacked Stone Fountain
Want a simpler yet equally elegant outdoor water fountain? How about building your own single-pedestal stacked stone pool fountain using GenStone pillar kits?
The sky’s the limit with this idea. Simply follow these steps:
- Build a hollow, 8” square post using PVC, vinyl siding, or any other waterproof material. This will serve as the pedestal for the fountain, and it will be secured in the center of the holding pool.
- Add GenStone stacked stone pillar veneers. Installation is a snap! Our pillar kits are made to work perfectly with 8” square posts, and the panels themselves naturally interweave, giving the appearance of real, stacked stone!
- Run your fountain pump tubing through the flat or peaked pillar cap (your choice). Then, simply let the waterfall down all four corners of the pedestal, accumulate in the holding pool, and recirculate using your water pump.
These single-pedestal outdoor water faux stone fountains can double as birdbaths with the addition of a washbasin added to the top. Use your imagination to create an attractive, natural-looking water feature that complements the rest of your outdoor living space.
