Having a water garden is a wonderful and fun garden feature in any setting. Not only can you enjoy beautiful
water plants like water lilies - for example, your pond will also attract some of nature's wonderful creatures such as
frogs, dragonflies and butterflies. You can also include goldfish.
You say you don't want the expense and maintenance associated with a water garden or lily pond? Not a problem.
You can enjoy water plants in just about anything that will hold water - from a teacup to an old bath tub, half a whiskey
barrel, a kiddie pool or a plastic or ceramic container. Just remember to put the container where you want it - water
is heavy (8 lbs to the gallon) and preferably where it will get at least six hours of sun.
