Yesterday I had help getting this fountain mounted. The contractor had a old picnic table and he used the wood from that. I had bought this fountain about eight years ago from a consignment shop, but never had anywhere to mount it. It had a pump with it and believe it or not it was made in Italy, not China. I had to clean it all out to get it to work and we were off and running. When the grapevine fills in it will make a really nice back ground.
