Let me tell you this one will cost good money, but will add boldness to your yard. Hire someone to build this design as you can not build it yourself. It needs professionalism.

The best thing about this one is the landscape view. If you place it in an area where people can see it from away, I mean make it a focal point, and then you feel the boldness. Clean the surroundings weekly so that it shines.

2. Build it with a Wooden Structure

If you do not like the brick design and do not want to spend that much money, then this one may suit you. It is made of wood and looks quite similar in appearance.

Although you can not build this one at home, you need to hire a professional for that big and bold appearance. But please paint it once in 3 years to maintain its beauty.

If you want you can plant some flowers under it to enhance the view. I will suggest that in my recommendation part with the flowers on.

3. Build a DIY Old-Looking Well Head Cover

This one may not feel very attractive but will cost less amount of money in terms of a complete cover. 

Although you can just build the head without the base, that may not look so good unless you are too short on budget.

This one you can build it home with the old-age wood that you have in your basement or garage. Just cut them accordingly and join them together. It does not take more than a day to build. Try it if you are confident in building this.

4. Go with a Pointy Head Top Cover

Just set them up in a circular way and cover the pump with a roof. It costs zero money and can last longer than decades.

8. Cover the Head with Something Metallic

Look you can go all metal and build a cover, or you can mix the wood and the metal to build this design. Both look good, but the mixture will last very long and will also look good in your yard.

You do not need to add any wheel or anything fancy there. Just the sole head with a circular ground.
