Are you looking for a fun and easy project? This DIY mini solar-powered garden fountain tutorial from Jeff Viera on Youtube will surely make you busy. This project is not only fun, but you will help little pollinators to have water during summer. The materials used are also easily acquired (you might actually already have them around your house) and cheap. Watch the video tutorial below to learn.
Place the pot tray on the ground, making sure it’s properly leveled so the small animals can climb on to drink. Assemble the mini solar fountain pump and place it in the tray. Next, layer some shadow stone rocks (or small rocks) on the bottom. Place some larger rocks around the edges of the solar pump. (This will hold the cord of the solar pump in place.) Cover the pump just a bit also with the rocks. After this, add the rest of the small rocks, then scatter some large rocks around on top. (These will serve as little islands for the pollinators to rest on.)
Fill up the mini fountain with water. Take the solar panel and place it facing the sunlight so the fountain will work. Your mini solar-powered garden fountain is now finished.
