Build a Log or Wood Slice Fountain for Backyard


Having a small backyard doesn’t mean it has to be limited and boring. Sometimes, with the right designs, it can even surprise you. There are many additions that can bring fun and life to your backyard, such as colorful plants, a peaceful pond, or a bubbling fountain.

In my opinion, a fountain would be the best choice. Even though building it is no small project, it can greatly enhance the look of your space and provide it with a serene and natural sound. Moreover, if you also want to add a rustic feel to your backyard and happen to have some spare logs, you can utilize them to create a DIY log fountain or water feature.
