DIY Water Gardens

Ever thought of wanting a water feature, but don’t feel like putting a lot of time or effort into actually building one? Well there is still hope for you to have your dreams come true! Container water gardening is quite a popular hobby and is easy to maintain. You can use any container that will hold water and plant any aquatic plants inside that you like. At Action we offer a variety of choices and different sizes both in circular and square containers which also include a top “shelf” for you to place smaller, bushier plants on or even a small fountain. The fun thing about this hobby is you can switch it up as much or as little as you like and the possibilities are endless! Put a water lily in the center and spread out different grasses and marginal’s around it to make your own little garden. Put some floating plants in such as water hyacinth or water lettuce and enjoy the nature that it brings. We even have filters for container water gardens if you wish to have circulating water. You can even add a small fish. These containers look great anywhere around your garden, patio, or even indoors. Get that Zen atmosphere without any of the maintenance you’d need for a larger size water garden. Feel like making your display a little more extravagant? Add some decorative stone and some aquatic spotlights! At Action Water Gardens we can help you make your small water garden dreams come true!
