What is a container water garden?
A container water garden is basically a mini water garden. It is a small pond contained in a decorative vessel. Container gardeners know how growing in pots simplifies the gardening process and reduces gardener maintenance (no weeds!). The same goes for water gardens in pots. They are low maintenance and easy to set up. Within a few weeks, your mini water garden will become an established habitat for water-loving creatures, and you’ll look forward to spending the evenings sipping wine while listening to the background sound of the running water from your mini pond.
