Project: Backyard Waterfall, River, Racetrack
Have you seen those posts on Pinterest about how to make a river in your backyard using foil? I saw it, looked like fun so we tried it. See below for the results of that effort (and before you judge, yes we know our lawn is outta control. I swear we just mowed).
Then I had a stroke of genius. I spotted a gutter that was laying in our yard when we moved in a couple of years ago. We kept it as we assumed it had blown off of a neighbor's house and they might come looking for it. Then I thought I might make a cool planter from it...but then yesterday its true purpose came into perfect clarity. Lay it in the yard, attach a hose and you've got a river. Prop it up, attach a hose and you've got a waterfall. No water? Then you've got a race track. Seriously fun!
Yes, that is an elephant in a shopping cart.
