Add water to your garden using a fibreglass container pond:
The answer for an instant mini pond in a small garden space is a fibreglass container pond. Even for a balcony!
The idea of using a container pond feature for adding water and flowering pond plants is gaining popularity all the time.
Our lightweight fibreglass container ponds for "ponds in pots" are ideal because they:
- Do not need to be buried (no holes to dig!) - they sit on top of the patio and are a feature in their own right.
- Are made with no drainage hole.
- Do not need painting with a sealant or lining as fibreglass is not porous.
- Will not deteriorate with age or crack in the Winter cold like wood or pottery.
- 3 different sizes (60cm, 80cm and 98cm diameter).
- Order from a choice of 17 different colours.
- 15 finishes are polished gloss.
- Limestone - is a matt, textured stone-look that will age like real stone. Rust is also a textured finish.
- Many 60 & 80cm colour combinations are in stock for next week delivery.
- 4-6 week delay for the size & colour combinations that are out of stock and made for you which includes all 98cm containers.
- These create a shelf in our fibreglass container ponds - saves putting bricks in that take up water volume.
- Our aquatic plants are supplied in baskets that locate into the grid so baskets will not blow over in the wind.
- The shelf will fit in the correct place in our containers to sit the basket tops approx 1" below water surface level.
- No grid is supplied for the 98cm container pond.
- Choose one of our 10 prepared planting schemes A-K 5 for 60cm wide, 5 for 80cm wide.
- Some Container pond planting schemes prepared for sun and some for shaded areas.
- Encourage pollinating insects by choosing pollinator plants for airborne insects.
- Plant the 98cm container pond with Pond waterlily placed on the base of the container and oxygenating plants.
Barley Bio Algae Control: we recommend you use this weekly in warm weather to help keep the water clean.
Chlorine Guard: recommended if you have to use tap water to fill or top up your container pond.
We continue to encourage gardeners to add water to any garden space, however small, to encourage wildlife to visit.
