French Planter Fountain

Residential
Wilmington, DE
One of our clients purchased this beautiful limestone planter from a French monastery with the intention of converting it into a fountain. After arriving from Europe, it endured a particularly cold winter, and the planter unfortunately cracked. However, a skilled craftsman on our team came to the rescue—ensuring the planter still became a charming fountain.
Repair
One of our skilled craftsmen repaired the planter’s crack and sealed it like new. To prepare the planter for installation, he also painted a waterproof seal on the inside to prevent water damage and further cracks. For the finishing touch, we worked with a local metal workshop to create a beautiful copper bin as the fountain’s basin.
Fountain Installation
To convert the planter into a fountain, we drilled a hole in the limestone and installed a pump with a regulator. This allowed us to adjust the pressure just right so it softly cascades down the sides. Now, the repurposed planter is a soothing fountain that adds to the ambiance of our customer's landscape.
Accent Plantings
As a complementary accent, our customer planted beautiful purple irises around the fountain and its copper basin. These emphasized the beauty of the fountain while drawing attention to the contrasting colors of the irises and the limestone.
Fountain Project

⛲ After a skilled craftsman on our team repaired, sealed, and painted the cracks in this planter that shipped from France, he then installed a pump and regulator to control the water flow—hear how it softly trickles off each side? Perfect for a zen moment. 😌 For the finishing touches, a metal workshop designed the copper basin, and our client accented the fountain with blooming purple irises. We love the result!
