Another Water Garden June 5, 2010

My original water garden was supposed to be created out of a stock tank. I came across a stock tank at Nixa Hardware that was surrounded with landscaping rocks and wanted to recreate it in my yard. I came across a stock tank on Craigslist for a mere $20.00. It had a couple of holes that we plugged with Great Stuff and it was as good as new!!

Using a free pool pump, I worked out a filtration system and a fountain, again, all free off Craigslist.

We never could get the rocks to work right, so instead, I just set it up and did some other things to make it attractive. I found a neat idea while geeking one day to use some bamboo around the edge.

I have an out of commission bamboo shade that I bought from Lowes. I measured it out and put it around the outside edge. We filled it full of water lilies and other plants we got off Craigslist. I put some Japanese Irises around the front and a wooden plank that was part of the landscaping when I bought the house.

We spent a whopping $50.00 total on this project between the stock tank, Great Stuff, and plants!

 

Fire Pit June 4, 2010

Since the water garden with the landscaping rocks didn’t work out, we made a firepit out of the remaining landscaping rocks instead. We did use the stock tank as a guide, because originally, it was going to go in there, so it is circular and 6′ wide. We bought bags of morter and sand to concrete all the stones together. Pretty simple project once we decided it wasn’t going to be a water garden!!

The Fire Pit

Another project from all those wonderful landscaping stones…

This project started out as a watergarden. I found a beautiful watergarden at Nixa Hardware and wanted the same for my home. It was a stock tank, flanked inside and outside with these landscaping stones, bottom of it was gravel.

I aquired a stock tank from craigslist for $20.00, 6′ diameter, 2.5′ deep–according to the previous owners, it may have a couple of pinholes in it. Well, not all craigslist deals are good deals–this one was a bad one. The stock tank was riddled with all sizes of holes in it! So, the watergarden became a fire pit.

Basically, we just used the stock tank as a guide, set the stones around it in a circular fashion to keep it nice and round. My husband bought concrete and sand and we mixed it up and set all the stones, inside and out, and let dry.

Wal-lah! Free fire pit! 🙂

Once we gave up the idea of this project holding water, it became a very simple one and about a $50.00 investment in concrete and sand.
