Want to do this myself. Will use large flagstones and 3/4" rock.

Well...this was not a DIY. It's location was very windy. In order to capture all the water we had a custom 12' x 12' basin made for the project. It sits about 24" below grade on a 6" concrete slab footing. I'm not sure about your geography - but the construction of the footing is critical to your climate. There are smaller prefabricated systems that are available online or at your local pond builder. If you choose this route - just make sure you choose a location that is protected from the wind and you should be fine. Generally you are looking at a "disappearing fountain" installation. Under the right conditions - it is as simple as installing a prefabricated basin with leaf grate, submersible pump (which means an electrical source in close proximity) and for ease of maintenance we like to install an auto-fill from the irrigation system. Send us an email and we can give you a little more information about how to go about doing it yourself.

Well.....in California I'm not sure. This specific fountain came from Frazier's (just northwest of Houston). If you have a local dealer for "Al's Garden Art" They may carry it or can get it for you. I'm not sure if it's still in production. Best of luck with your project !
