Great pictures, Sandy!! The hounds sure look like they are enjoying the fountain and patio.
One question, what kind of surface do you have on the concrete patio? We've got to do something to our 30 year old patio to cover the washed rocks surface that's popping rocks, which is not good with Bogie and his rock history. That surface on yours really looks nice, almost a mottled marble look. I don't want just a slab of concrete. You can PM me if you want. Thanks!!
Connie. when they poured the patio last year, the guy laid down something like heavy burlap on it, and them stamped it while it was still wet. It left a 'marble' effect, very pretty. The color isn't too good in these pics, it's a deeper blue/grey.
I too would love to do some type of water feature in our backyard. I really want a coi (sp?) pond, but the racoons like "partying" in my backyard as it is, I would have to put a net over it and then whats the point...ya'lls ponds are beautiful though.
