Container Water Gardens

Container water gardens are a great way to get your feet wet with water features. They're small and pretty! Add a fountain or even a couple small fish like Rosy Reds. More water garden images at http://www.aquascapeinc.com/imagegallery.

    So nice to see fountains and ponds in the summer! My hubby and son dug our pond by hand 10 years ago and it is such a pleasure to have. The frogs enjoy sitting on the decoy duck my husband had placed in the pond.

    Last year a Muskrat pretty much wiped out all our pond plants before we realized what was happening. So we are slowly getting things growing again.

    Update - here's a picture of the fountain in a planter with the Canna opening. Much nicer than the one I just included here.
