If you're looking to add the element of water or a water feature to your backyard landscape without the added work and expense of an elaborate waterfall or fountain, a small round pond like this placed somewhere in the lawn might just be the answer.
While the mechanics of the fountain may take a little engineering, designing the pond itself is within most anyone's skill level. If you can draw a round circle somewhere in your backyard, dig a small hole, line it with pond liner, and then create a border around it, you can do this project quite easily on your own.
Not much different than any other water feature or waterfall, with the fountain installed in it, you can enjoy the same sound and motion element that water adds to the landscaping. Also, a small round pond like this is just as capable of supporting fish and aquatic plants with the added feature of being able see and enjoy it from any angle.
