Backyard water treatments are really popular right now as more and more people look to find the perfect oasis without ever leaving home.
Grass Roots Nursery in New Boston is the premiere leader when it comes to putting in water treatments here in the Midwest. Owner Scott Bates explained what you need to get started.
"We need to select some crockery, preferably something that is frost proof so when we drain this for the winter, it doesn't have to be brought in. We want something that's going to hold it's integrity. We need a base that this is going to sit on, perhaps some night lighting, stone, a shovel to work with and a pump with some tubbing to get this thing going."
So how much does this cost and how long will it take to install?
"Two people can have this installed in maybe four hours if they were serious about getting the project done, and as far as money goes anywhere from $350 up depending on the crockery or the thing that they want to move the water through."
