Create a miniature container pond as a pond-in-a-pot water feature:

Do I have to dig a hole to have a pond?

No, you can create a pond in any container that will hold water.

  • Create a miniature container pond in a container of metal, ceramic, fibreglass, an old Butler sink or new wooden barrels.
  • Avoid wood barrels already used for whisky or wine as this can leach back into the water and lead to problems of water pH, smell & plant growth.
  • Seal any drainage holes by using a patch of pond liner and a waterproof adhesive sealant.
  • Fill the container with rainwater if possible rather than tap water. Use Chlorine Guard if you have used tap water.

Our range of lightweight fibreglass containers for a small container pond are available in a choice of 17 colours and finishes. Also in 3 width sizes - 60cm, 80cm and 98cm wide at the top rim.

Our container ponds are easy to use:

  • Delivered without a drainage hole
  • Not vulnerable to frost or ice.
  • Just keep the water level just below the underside of the sloping rim.

Our container ponds are available in the following colours and finish effects: See container pond shop page.
