Hi all, not posted on here for a while but recently been doing up the garden so as well as sorting out some decking I have also built a wishing well from pallets and a water feature.

I used Sapele for the wood. If I was to re do it and had the space to spend more time on it I would chamfer the edges to make the wood look more like one piece post sections. Saying that I am happy with how it turned out.

It sits on a 3x2 treated frame that is concreted in the ground. Has a heavy duty plastic box hurried between for the water holder and the pump sits in that, wired the LED strip lighting up for it aswell

Cheers
Mark

Bonus image of the wishing well. Makes a nice planter and you can get creative with blue plants and a bucket hanging from the roof.

Sorry Mark, I don't get it. It looks like 2 posts and a beam, with no water and no wall in sight.

Pond hose running up the post connected to a pond pump, inturn is connected to a piece of copper with holes drilled into it and irrigation nozzles attached to control the flow. There is also LED strip lighting sitting either side of the copper pipe that I soldered up so the light travels down the water when on at night.
