Building modern outdoor fountains can add a touch of beauty to your patio and enhance your landscaping. Many people also appreciate the soothing sound of the flowing water. You can buy a prefabricated fountain in the store, but if you want to show your skills, you can build a fountain yourself. Select the location of the source. Make sure the place has fairly easy access to an outdoor electrical outlet and is large enough to hold the basin for the water supply from the source.
Dig a hole in the location of the modern outdoor fountains that is slightly larger than the basin you are going to use and 2 inches deeper than the height of the basin. Dig a trench from the hole to the electrical outlet. The trench should be 3 inches deep and enough to contain the PVC pipe that will be the conduit for the electrical wire width.
Build modern outdoor fountains, measure and cut PVC pipe to fit inside the trench. If you need more than one section of the pipe, connect the different sections with PVC sleeves. Pour 2 inches of gravel into the hole in the pile. Smooth the surface, and tamp down. Put the basin in your mouth.
