I would love to have a nice water feature in my yard as well but they can be really expensive.
So just quickly found some sites for you.

Ther is a company in Hoppers Crossing called Water Pros, or something like that. They do Irrigation, watering systems, garden lighting and Water features.
I cant wait for the day my wife lets me go nuts in there, the back yard is fast approaching

This is the beginning of our pond/water feature.
Hubby is doing it himself and bought the pumps online for heaps cheaper than the stores.
He just researched on the internet and asked at different stores and then just went for it.
While I wasn't really up for it at first I have to say I'm rather proud of him.

The pumps just arrived today so that's hubby's job this weekend. More digging, thank God I'm working........ lol.
Don't know how long it will take, but will definitely post more pics as we go along.
Satskape I will ask him which sites he got pumps off and will post it too. He really did do a lot of research I think.

I'm happy to give you advice on building a waterfeature and can also provide you a link to our fabulous pump selector (allows you to see how much water you will get from a particular pump, at a certain height, in a given tubing size.
It is a business so I won't post links just yet - if you're interested and I'm allowed I will post the link to the Pump Selector.
