Portable Ponds

By Eric4home

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.

Such wonderful ideas! One could build a pond in pretty much anything. So beautiful and the sound of the water is so relaxing.

I have two of those pretty glazed bowls as in your fourth picture (mine are teal colored) that a friend gave me and they are in my lanai with some grass and waterlilies in them. All I need to do is fill them up a bit from time to time. I love them.
