Circular Iron Grate Fountain at Phipps Conservatory

It is futile to try to keep children out of the water! They were meant to paddle and play in it. So this design makes a beautiful and worry-proof water feature that is suitable for any garden. I recently found the company who supplied this iron grate: Urban Accessories in Tacoma, WA

They make square, rectangular and circular grates of many sizes at Urban Accessories
