Having a water wall can take your garden from ‘nice’ to ‘splendid’. But do you also have to shell out a splendid amount to have a water feature installed in your yard? The answer is not always as proven in this DIY project. And yes — you can definitely DIY your water wall!
Building your own water wall may not necessarily mean cheap or inexpensive but you can relatively save a good amount or, in other words, avoid unnecessary spending. By doing it yourself, you are assured of the quality of your materials while keeping those costs at a minimum. You can also forget about labor costs! ?
The owner-builder of this glass waterfall lowered his expenses by being able to get his glass material for free. It came with an aluminium frame with rubber strips for securing the glass. Now a lot of us may not be as lucky, but by being resourceful one can also build this water feature without breaking the bank!
If you doubt you can build this water feature all on your own, you can ask a knowledgeable friend to help you out or give you some advice. But even if you’ve got someone who can help, it’s always most important to do all the research that you can before proceeding with the building process.
