So you want a water feature for your garden but you don’t have the money and the time to do so? Well, this little DIY will cost only $30 and it’s very easy to make too. All you need are: fountain pump (preferably, a solar-powered one), a water-tight plastic storage container such as those made by Rubbermaid, some flat concrete pavers, rocks of various sizes, both small and large, and a plant (such as water grass) that will thrive in water.
The non-profit organization, Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests or LEAF, is working tirelessly to make sure that the urban forest is preserved, especially in Ashbridges Estate.
LEAF founder Janet McKay said the trees are under a lot of stress right now, so there’s a need to protect them. LEAF is trying to raise awareness by hosting tours across the city. Over 25 people have already joined the Ashbridges Estate tour.
