Pondless Backyard Fountain Pond and Waterfall. Even without the fountain, which in Az will grow algae like nobody's business, I think the idea of softening up the patio with a little rock garden with plants mixed in.
My grandfather had one, he was such an elegant and lovely dog. His name was Borsalino( Lino for short :) Fabulous collars! Italian Greyhounds are so beautiful and elegant. In front of an old urn, stone underfoot. I'm pretending they live in Rome!
