    John thanks for the question. I'd probably advise searching for a local vendor for this type of fountain as opposed to ordering one. The bubbler rock in this photo is a natural basalt column that has been core-drilled to allow water to spill-out of the top. Our primary suppliers for these fountain kits (bubbler rock, submersible pump, plumbing parts, liner, etc.) are Rock Mountain Products in Western WA, and Tumble Stone in Eastern WA / Northern ID. Depending on where you live, I would search for local rock & landscape suppliers that have retail sales environments. Many suppliers also carry pre-cast concrete bubbler "rocks" that look like real stone, but are much lighter and can be easier to work with. Once you find the fountain kit you like, you can install yourself, or hire a local landscape company to install it.

    The fountain shown can be a natural stone or a pre-cast concrete fountain. If you look closely, you'll see it's not a stump.

    I used a stump. Drilled a 1/2 hole down the middle, inserted tubing and placed a small pump underneath. Works great.

A meditative stone. This natural-stone fountain, installed by Alderwood Landscaping, provides a quiet spot in the backyard for thinking or zoning out.Next: Browse thousands of outdoor water feature designs

6. Basalt gurgling rock...water recirculates. No exposed water and the birds love it!
