Portable Ponds

Do you live in an apartment or townhouse or are you thinking of moving in a few years? Is digging a pond an issue for you? Then an above-ground water garden is perfect for you. Small above-ground water gardens have many advantages. No digging, no wading in to clean them, lower cost, and portable. Just look around and think out of the ground.

I have a pink plastic baby tub with an oblong shape that I think would be nice to use as a pond. But it's pink. What kind of paint would you use on plastic?

Krylon makes a spray paint specifically for plastics, I used it on some of my plastic pots the looked great when I was done and have held up very well. Not sure about using it for the inside of a pond but it would be worth trying. There might be an 800 number on the cans where you can call and ask questions. I like the idea of the baby tub it would make a nice small pond.
