Basalt Columns | Vic Hannan Landscape Materials These “Pond-Less” Fountains range from 18 inches to over 7 feet tall, drilled completely through for water flow, they can be the centerpiece of any yard or even an interior building.EASY to install and maintain.

  1. Dig a shallow retaining basin (10″ to 18″ deep)
  2. Line basin with heavy-duty pond liner.
    We recommend and sell PPL24 Pond Liner – Lighter weight, stronger, more UV resistant than any other pond materials.  The only liner approved by the USDA / NRCS for Nationwide use of non-soil covered conditions.
  3. Place a few wall blocks in the basin.
  4. Place basalt column on the blocks. Balance and secure.
  5. Run tubing from a submersible pump up through the pre-drilled hole.
  6. Fill retaining basin with decorative stones – leaving an opening for the pump and pump access.
  7. Turn your pump on and enjoy the cool splashing sounds of a cascading rock fountain.

These columns are solid basalt from British Columbia, Canada.  Each one a unique and distinctive work of natural art.
