Circular Iron Grate Fountain at Phipps Conservatory

Ingenious use of a tree pit made into a child-proof fountain.

As a designer who often works for clients with small children, I am a big fan of this circular iron grate as a safe way for children to interact with a water fountain in the garden. 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

  1. How wonderful! Great photos, too. I've never been to Phipps--definitely on the bucket list!

    1. Thanks Beth! It is a magical place & definitely a must if you are able to visit the Pittsburgh area.
