Yes, you can easily do this and today we are bringing to you a collection of Amazing Succulent Fountains and we want to give you several tips on how to make one such fountain.
The first thing that you should have in mind when adding a fountain that will serve as succulent planter is to prepare the ground where it will sit. The ground should be level and firm, because once the fountain is filled it will be heavy, so make sure it is stable. The base can be a concrete foundation or pavers. Place the bottom bowl on the base and level. Continue with the next base and bowl, leveling the structure after each addition. Add pea gravel or other small rock to the bottom of each bowl to prevent from water drainage and help the succulents from getting water-logged after a heavy rain.
The next step is to add the soil and fill the bottom base with the largest succulents. Then, add the cascading succulents in all tiers and place the rest of the succulents around the tiers, combining versatile textures and colors.
You will be amazed how beautiful this mixture of textures and colors will look and this will become the focal point of your backyard. Scroll down now to see the succulent fountains that we have chosen for you today and get inspired to make some for your backyard too. Enjoy!
