How often do you have to refill? - It would seem as though the water would evaporate pretty quickly as I'm here in FL. Is this real stone or the fake stuff, and how much $$$?

Sigrid
How often you have to refill depends on the dryness of the air, the heat, and the frequency of rainfall. You can always test this for your location with a plain bowl.

Does this actually circulatie? - I like the natural look but if it does not move this seems like a serious mosquito breeder. I wouldn't want that at all but certainly not near my front door.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lauren Bonar Swezey added this to Plant a Pocket Garden
Here’s another way to create a pocket garden using succulents: this time, the plants are clustered around a large stone “water tower” that looks like the perfect drinking fountain for birds.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 7 Finishing Touches for a Thoughtful Front Yard
4. Water features. If you've ever thought about having a fountain, don't feel like you need to relegate it to your backyard. Position your fountain by your front walk, entry or garden bed. Choose from ready-made fountains in concrete or metal, custom features made from glazed pottery or simple, unassuming fountains that bubble up through rocks.Tip: If you are planning a water feature away from your entryway or foundation, you may need to hire an electrician to install an electrical outlet for the water pump. Be sure it's made for outdoor use and has a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter), which will automatically shut off if the system senses the current flowing along an unintended path (such as water), reducing the risk of electrical shock.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to 13 Risks to Take for True Garden Rewards
11. Water for life. All kinds of insects and birds and amphibians will use almost any water feature you can provide. And if that water feature does double duty as a sculptural element, so much the better.
