This planter bowl can be used in several ways in addition to birdbaths on feet for the birds.
To allow for water lily bath / modern bird bath, there is no hole in the bottom of this plant bowl when it is delivered. However, you can easily create a hole with a metal step drill if desired. The video shows how to build a fountain. Depending on whether you want to hide all the cables or not, one or two holes are required in the barrel.
If you want to set a fire, there are different options. Fire requires oxygen to burn and preferably a flow from below. We therefore recommend that you buy our own designed fire grate in Corten for this outdoor fire place, which creates a distance between the bottom of the plant bowl and the grate. Oxygen flow makes it easier to light the wood. Alternatively, you can drill holes in the barrel and then also in the side of the base to create flow.
Our fire bowls are also suitable as coffee tables. Use any table top and you easily convert the bowl into a coffee table when it is not used as a plant bowl / water lily bath.
How to create a fountain without visible cables
Q & A
Corten steel is a durable material that is also maintenance-free. These modern bird bath achieve a beautiful deep maroon color from its copper when exposed to the elements. Changing weather changes its surface from the usual color of steel to over time achieving a thin protective reddish-brown rust layer.
It is an oxidation process of the steel surface that starts with the help of weather and wind. This process eventually causes corrosion of the steel to stop. The rust layer that forms thus protects this sign and adheres to the surface of the steel, which prevents moisture from penetrating. The protective patina prevents steels from corroding, does not require painting and does not damage the strength of the steel. This is a durable variant that will be a cherished feature to admire for many years!
Normally, there is nothing that prevents you from using it your own garden (check your country legislation), in the courtyards and yards of apartment buildings, provided that the landlord / housing association allows it. Whoever sets a fire is responsible for ensuring that the fire does not spread uncontrolled and that the fire does not cause inconvenience to others.
It is fine to use it on a wooden deck, as long as you make sure that the radiant heat or sparks from the fire do not risk starting a fire. Therefore, this plant bowl / modern bird bath should not stand directly on a combustible surface such as wooden decking. An alternative is to place a spark grate on your wooden grate and then place your outdoor fire place on top of it. Also make sure to have extinguishing materials on hand.
As the heat rises, an outdoor fire place like this creates a lovely place to sit all year round at social events. Our planter bowls are fully assembled when we send them to you and have no loose parts as they are welded with Corten. These bowls can be used for several things such as flower bowls, fountains, coffee tables, fireplaces or modern bird bath. If you do not intend to use the fire bowl for a modern bird bath or fountain, you can easily drill a hole in the middle of the barrel with a small metal drill for water drainage. Should you regret it, it is easy for a welder to weld the hole in the fire bowl.
With the help of our bird baths, you can easily hide cables in the foot. We show in a short video how to create a unique fountain for your garden by using our bird baths. We recommend these mini pumps that can be connected with two hoses under the fountain and do not need to stand in water.
For our large bowl, which is Ø150 cm, you can have a more powerful mini pump with a nozzle. We recommend this mini pump for our large fountain (flow at 0 meters through hose 1500 litres/hour). For this pump, there is also a nozzle that causes the jet to spray decoratively.
You avoid rust waste from this birdbath by brushing on a plant-based wax from soy, coconut or rapeseed directly in your outdoor fire place. It protects well and is not dangerous for the birds. Melt the wax over low heat and brush on a thin, even layer over the rusty surface.
Yes, we can provide that. A variation is to paint only the inside of the bowl if you want to use the planting bowl as a fountain or birdbath, for example. Then you avoid rust waste in the water.
We can paint in any RAL colour. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
