    DIY Container Water Garden. Recommended plants: canna lilies, dwarf papyrus and taro (for height); water lilies or lotuses (their leaves will cover much of the water surface from sunlight, preventing algae growth); water hyacinth and water lettuce (floaters); water mint (to cascade over the container’s edge).

Water features do not have to be massive in size. One like this usually has a water reserve like a 5 gallon bucket placed under the ground with a recycle pump. The rocks cover the reservoir and allow the water to flow back to the pump.

    This would be a great addition to the water garden we are planning..or a way to continue the theme throughout the deck!!

    I am so glad that my 'pin' has been able to be of help to you in what sounds like a totally beautiful deck! I believe the containers could actually be made by oneself, If one desired, very easily with a mould and some quick dry cement! Then render it in an appropriate colour to fit your theme!! Did you know you are able to purchase a tiny bottle of 'stuff' which added to the water ( e.g. 1ml per 5ltrs., I think) not much! It then keeps all the algae away and the water sparkling and clear! I was rapt when I found this product at, would you believe the SUPERMARKET!! Good luck with your gorgeous deck and I hope it turns out to be everything you have wished it to be and more!! - NANETTE
