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.

@Pam Wojcik I love your trellises! They are fabulous and I might have to copycat them in my next house!
@quinciettajane I am going to have to look into Escalonia to plant in front of a 6' retaining wall. I've not heard of it before but liked your description.

I did like the sculptural fence, but they weren't kidding when they said EXPENSIVE. Since my new neighbor has a very tall privacy fence -- I don't have to spend the money for one! Fences make good neighbors.

to jillybeanisme ..Thank You! the highest kind of compliment indeed :)
ther is a correction thought...8 ft 4x4s. 5 ft panels. They were so heavy, it took 4 men to carry them. Also, my contractor did a fantastic job getting them vertical and level. It was not easy ! Be prepared. But totally worth it.

Another great site is www.need-less.org.uk which is directed even more toward the general public. There is a terrific street light simulator called "interactive light pollution simulator" if you scroll most of the way down the page. Turn on sound for great night time ambiance.
