@sartarehare Thanks for the ideas. The Ikea shelves turned out to basically just be filled with corrugated cardboard - so it wasn't just that they pulled out of the wall. They actually broke - the edges came apart, etc. (see photo). I think paint quality wood or mdf or the like would be more secure, along with extra anchors.

Unfortunately, while I think he could install with extra anchors, etc, I don't think he is up to actually engineering it from scratch DIY.

@ luckylyn5- lag bolts are the most secure way if you can locate the studs. Go to your lumberyard or hardwoods supply and ask for poplar. It's lightweight and easy to sand and paint. Then predrill the boards so you are sure that the exit part of the long lag bolt winds up where the stud is. I just finished our laundry room shelves using that approach. I used fir instead, which is denser than poplar but I have a bunch of it from a prior project.

Here's mine - the birdbath keeps overflowing, dripping into the little stream, then into the pond, then back up to the birdbath again. My father made the birdbath for me.

One caveat not mentioned here is the need to ensure that all the water falls back into the base pot, otherwise you will constantly have to re-fill it. Bubblers that are only a few inch high tend not to have this problem as much as some of the higher fountains where the water falls in a bell or cone shape. With those types, you'll want to have a catchment area around the fountain that will return all the water to the basin - the size of that area depends upon the height of the fountain, the strength of the winds, etc.

scoutstella, that's probably what I should do, although most kits don't come with the pressure regulator, timer, or filter. All essential to really use the system effectively. Those items will at least double if not triple your initial investment.

Well, we had a "professional" landscape gardener put our drip hoses in and they fell apart by the second year, now she want to just put in a overground hose with a sprinkler, I feel like she doesn't know what she doing--you guys here make it seem so much simpler than she has, should I get rid of her?
