Hello, Ann Ann, as far as I know that the water from the river is pumped into the upper watering can, and since the buckets are set at a slight angle, they begin to overflow into the watering can underneath and so on. When he came back to the river, there were times when the river was submerged to half the garden!

@Mary Ann, because there is no river / stream, you are using fittings from the ironmonger, you can go back to the bottom floor to drain water through an aquarium pump, you can just hide the pipe under some kind of cover (what kind of watering cans will depend on what you use, the galvanized pipe is galvanized) will look similar?) and gravity will handle the rest; and when you first fill the cans, you only need to fill them with water evaporating. What if I'm not missing anything? It looks pretty simple. Good luck.

This is a truly unique water feature that you do very cleverly and I imagine it is very easy to install. I wonder if you used a flow regulator in your pump, or is the pump size the perfect fit for the water feature?

I want to use this water feature to give water to my garden during the dry season. We have water barrels to catch the excess rainwater and I'm hoping to get another one. This is a great trick to hide your normal rubber hose!

I have taught Art in the UK for over 35 years and have always done my own work.

We moved to France 12 years ago and continued to renovate the house and build the garden. I do a lot of old textiles and also sell vintage sheets.

I've had 6 exhibitions on my artwork since I lived here and in the summer, since I ran a small art gallery in a nearby town. I'm doing homemade cards and other ephemera.



What is the best way to replant your lawn?

If you're tired of tanning in your garden, lifeless grass stains or stubborn heaps of crab grass, there may be time to refresh your lawn. There are several ways to regenerate your lawn, but sometimes damage can be too heavy for a quick repair. Destroy your entire garden - lawns and all - for complete regeneration and sprinkle brand new grass seeds on the lawn.

Step 1

Determine whether to install a new series of cold season grass or warm season grass. Cold season grasses - as the name suggests - grow in cold months. Warm season grasses develop well in warmer weather. Your seed selection determines when you need to plant your new seeds. Start sowing seeds in the warm season in early spring and plant seeds in the warm season in early autumn.

Step 2

Kill your old herbs with herbicides. Spray the herbicides directly on the grass. Avoid spraying everything you don't want to die for (trees, bushes and flowers, for example). Begin the destruction of old herbs early, because it may take several weeks for the herbicides to function properly. Read the instructions for herbicide containers carefully before use.

Step 3

Turn the soil 6 inches up in your garden. Use a shovel for small areas. Larger grass areas may require rototiller. A rototiller is a machine specially designed to break up soil. Break up piles of soil larger than your fist.

Step 4

Pour your grass seeds into a manually pushed seed spreader. Bring the seed drill to the corner of the garden and start pushing it slowly and steadily. Walk along a zigzag line in your garden, distributing the seeds evenly across the raised soil.

Step 5

Apply a thin layer of soil over the freshly sown seeds. This helps to protect them from hungry birds and other animals that may try to eat your seeds. Water the lawn with a soft water spray.
