37 Coolest Container Water Gardens
Every garden is beautiful, whatever style you choose and whichever plants you prefer. Some special decorative features can make the space even cooler and more welcoming, and one of such means is water. Backyard ponds, fountains and other water bodies can enliven your patio or garden easily. If you don’t have enough space to accommodate a large pond or you consider making one too difficult, we offer you to decorate your outdoor space with a mini pond or a container water garden.
What Are Container Water Garden Advantages?
There are a number of benefits to growing a container water garden in your yard. For one thing, the garden can serve as the focal point of your landscape. It can be eye catching and something that people want to check out when they visit your home. Water gardens can also benefit the critters that live around your home. The water in the garden can be something for small animals, such as squirrels, to drink. Birds can also drink from the garden, if you keep the water level high enough. A small water garden is an ecosystem unto itself. You not only plant greenery in the garden. You can also put fish and snails in the water. The fish and snails will eat excess plant matter and algae. Fish will also eat any mosquito larvae that hatch into the water garden, helping to control the levels of pests in your garden.

What container can you use? Literally anything that you have at hand: an oversized planter, a galvanized tank, a plastic container or even a large bowl, it all depends on the size of the pond you want. Consider the style of your outdoor space and match the container. If you wanna make a statement with it, go for a bright color on the outside – paint the planter in some bright color.
