Comments about Product:
This is a fabulous birdbath!! It is a little top-heavy on a mountainside when filled with water, so we filled the base column with some rocks so it wouldn't tip over. It works perfectly and doesn't get dirty and gross-looking like out old "concrete" colored one!

Pretty; not a great perfomer
Comments about Product:
I would not normally pay this much for a birdbath. However, it is beautiful and, given the price and the size of the solar panel, I thought it would store up energy and bubble even after dark (as do my pathway lights, which have much smaller solar panels). I was wrong. The fountain function stops as soon as the sun goes behind clouds. What results is a still basin of water, which: (1) could be had much cheaper, if that's what one wants; and (2) becomes a mosquito breading ground, which precisely what I hoped to avoid in buying a bubbling version. Not worth the money.

More than one use
Comments about Product:
I purchased one several years ago. I have had to replace the solar pump twice. Now none of the pumps will fit the older size. Very disappointed in not having a bubble fountain. I use is as just a bird bath but i already had one of those so it is not what i wanted.

Pretty but also disappointing
Comments about Product:
The fountain only operates in bright sunshine. If one cloud comes by, it stops. This is so disappointing and a better battery would have solved this.I had to say whether or not I would recommend this. Not sure. But yes, as we enjoy it, but its often shortlived.

Love it!!
Comments about Product:
My boss got this for our boutique/salon and put it in the backyard with the bird and squirrel feeders, and the birds LOVE it! It's easy to set up, lightweight but sturdy, and really adds to the animal sanctuary feel we are trying to create. I would highly recommend it!!

the finish bubbled and peeled
Comments about Product:
Was so excited to get this birdbath, but within three months, the finish bubbled and peeled off. It was expensive, which I don't mind if it is good quality, but this is definitely not.

Finish Deteriorated
Comments about Product:
Loved the look and function of this fountain until the finish started peeling and bubbling after a few weeks. Plow and Hearth replaced (thank you!), but the second did the same thing. Sometimes the solar panel piece seems to get too sealed to the bowl and water has trouble reaching the pump - needs frequent cleaning to avoid. Otherwise, great flow. I was really sad, because it would have been the perfect fountain if the finish didn't break down.

Item as shown but bung won't stay in
Comments about Product:
The bung that keeps the water in the top of this two-tiered fountain doesn't stay in. If you adjust it at all to make it straight, the bung falls out and no water stays in the top. Frustrating! Save your money and get the plain solar fountain. I liked that much better (until it broke).

Beautiful, Easy to set up
Comments about Product:
Bought this one after a year of shopping. It is one of the most beautiful fountains around. Very easy to assemble. Must be perfectly level. Has stood up well to some strong winds and storms right away..even racoon paw prints on the side of it...Hasn't tipped over. Very fussy about the amount of sunlight it gets. In full sun the fountain head shoots high. When a cloud passes, the stream lowers or stops completely. If you don't mind an on again/off again fountain you will love it! No wires...No plumbing! Easy and looks and sounds beautiful!

Better be Full Sun!
Comments about Product:
The birdbath will only work at full overhead sun. Even the thinnest cloud layer or morning/evening angle will keep it from working.

The center of the dish that holds the water needs to be deeper. The pump does not allow the solar panel to set properly.

Comments about Product:
We like our fountain a lot. So far the cats have not jumped up into it to swim or tip it over(: The motor unit does float about, it would looked better if that part anchored to the bottom somehow. We especially like that it does not look "new" and seems to have been there for years.

Saw a sparrow taking a bath today. Cool.
Comments about Product:
Product looks nice, alittle expensive though. Solar pump worked good for two weeks, now it hardly pushes any water. The bird bath still looks nice even without the pump working very good.

The Olla: A Brief History

Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.

When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.

The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.

Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!

How it Works:

Water is pulled directly through the terra-cotta!
