Build a mini water garden oasis

These three potted ponds are sure to inspire you to add your own soothing water feature to your space

This pond consists of two black metal containers that fit one inside the other, so there’s room for a water garden and a small dryscape. Test the containers first to ensure they’re watertight. (These two looked OK, but the corners leaked so I put in a liner.) Although the large container is 48 centimetres square and the smaller one is 28 centimetres square, they’re only 14 centimetres high, giving the arrangement a low profile. After placing one inside the other, I filled the inner container with water and added the plants.
