Are you looking to create a peaceful setting on your own porch, deck or yard without spending a lot of time or money? Try water garden containers. It is an easy way to spruce up the appearance of any outdoor area. The water garden containers can be created using any type of container provided it is water sealed. A container that is not otherwise considered or designed to function as a fountain, must be fixed up so it can hold water and not deteriorate form being wet. Large ceramic pots work well as long as the insides are water sealed. And the water garden containers should also be designed primarily around the kind of aquatic plants you would like. You may want to create a Zen like container water garden with a low profile container with a single Lotus or single Water lily.
