The shallow water in the cobble area as part of this stream/beach area is a great design feature. It is ideal for mating frogs and the development of spawn. Sinking a rafting pond plant like
Myosotis scorpioides or Veronica beccabunga between the cobbles beside this water area to give some hiding places as protection from the birds would be great too. Photo 219
A container pond can live outside during Winter and the fibreglass will not crack or break. The plants can live in the water too as long as they are planted at the correct depth for each variety. Only in the most severe Winters do you need to be extra careful if you have a waterlily in the container - cover all around with bubblewrap to stop all the water from freezing solid. Waterlilies do not want to be in solid ice.
80cm Rust container pond recently planted. Well-placed beside the bench so that you can sit and watch the wildlife it brings to visit the water.
You can see the 9cm &11cm baskets we despatch housed in contour baskets and large square baskets on the shelf. The spaces around the smaller baskets are filled with gravel for weight. Gravel can also be used underneath the smaller baskets to raise them to the correct depth of water over the top of that basket. 3 litre Waterlilies occupy the deeper water.
Single depth pond at the base of this stream. The pump will send the water through pipework back to the top to start the water flow again.

Planted Dark copper 80cm container pond set as a focal point in the garden
Contemporary pond with planted focal points of 3 plants grouped in a larger square 'outer basket'. This gives a formal look to match the pond style and gives the groups of tall plants stability as the spaces in the outer basket are filled with gravel for weight.
A tin bath can be recycled to make a miniature pond. Best if placed in a shady spot as the metal can heat up quickly
A bridge or path across the pond is a great way of getting close up to the wildlife and the goings on in the pond.

Pond with patio overhanging the water - nice to dangle your feet on a hot day!
Wonderful show of flowers and large green leaves on this Pond waterlily - Darwin
Frog spawn laid on top of baskets on shallow shelf. Frogs used the baskets as a platform as they mated.
Great choice of finish on this 80cm container pond in dark copper that matches the colour of the bark on the tree behind.

Pond with good log piles surrounding it to protect wildlife from the roadway. Lots of creature hiding places and Winter home opportunities around this garden!
