I got this beautiful rock fountain from my parents as a house warming gift. I love to be outdoors and adding my own touches to my yard to make it more "me." This rock fountain is a beautiful work of art that is actually made from rocks found in the mountains, providing a much more realistic natural look to it. It has multiple tiers where water can run down from various points instead of the traditional fountains that have three structured levels with one overflow point at each tier. This is a decent size fountain standing just a few inches shy of three feet. It is also pretty heavy which is a good thing when left outdoors constantly. I do not worry about it being blown over and getting damaged during the storms we have. It is powered by an electrical outlet and has a cord roughly six feet long giving some freedom of placement options without need for an extension cord.
