Step 1: First Collect Together Everything You Will Need.
You will need:
A plant saucer (I had tonnes of old ones lying around I'm sure you will be able to find old grotty ones in your back garden. If not they are really cheap at local gardening stores.)
Water fountain (I bought this water fountain a while ago it cost around £10 however the pump broke. I guess that was why it was so cheap. I decieded to recycle it and it looks really good in the scenery on the saucer.)
Wood clippings or leaves ( Small twigs or wood chipping under trees or from a local gardening store.)
Moss and grass from your garden and on trees. (The best ones are full of colour however if you cannot find much don't worry. If you water your mini garden it will grow into a small eco system. The root system will become strong and survive for a long time.
Step 2: Wash the Saucer
Step 3: Fix the Fountain in Place.
I balanced the fountain on a mixture of soil and stones.
Step 4: Fixing the Grass in Place.
I suggest grass with different textures and colours.
Step 5: Adding the Moss.
Step 6: Adding the Chippings
I sprinkled them from the bottom of the fountain to the edge.
I had originally planned to have a stone river (small white pebbles) but my saucer was too small and there was too much going on. I also had planned to build a bridge over the stream. Sadly I have no glue gun so I did it with sellotape, it looked horrible and was far to big. I have attached a picture of the bridge and later the original plan so you can adapt this with your model.
Step 7: General Notes:
Do not over water your mini garden, there are no holes and you could kill the roots if they sit in water for too wrong.
It took me about 1 hour from start to finish
Enjoy making this, it is easy and cheap I hoped my instructions were clear I would love to see what you made so please post a picture in the comments.
