Mini Oasis If space is limited, a small fountain, bubbling millstone or half-barrel or trough filled with water and aquatic plants can be a good option. Place your feature by a seat or close to the house where it will be visible from the window. When planting a miniature pool, take care to avoid vigorous plants and rely on small, compact plants like pygmy waterlilies.
Pallet bar my husband made for our seasonal campsite. Approx $80 only!! 6 pallets, (10) 12x12 patio pavers, 2 tubes liquid nails (use w/ a gun), wood screws & one 1x10 piece of wood. He screwed pallets together using a level, screwed the 1x10 onto the top of pallets, used liquid nails to set the pavers, painted the bar, strung lights & attached a bottle opener!!
