How to make it?
For making your own DIY Water Container Garden you should go down to the store and get a container, some water plants and additional decorations. You should pick a good container that is waterproof. Any that can hold water will work for your project. It can be a metal bucket, terracotta pot, or even one that you have made yourself using concrete.
How do you plant in water? The plants should be first planted in one basket, that will go inside the container. First, you prepare the basket. For water plants, you use topsoil that contains clay. Fill your basket, plant, and then cover it with gravel so you keep the soil in place.
Arrange your garden
Decide on which plants you will use. For this project, you will need water flowers. A water lily is a must for your arrangement, as it will add visual interest with the colorful bloom. For a professional design, you should use plants with different heights. When you mix together different colors and textures, the end result will be fascinating. The tallest plant that you have should be placed in the back, or in the center of the container. You place this first, and then continue to layer the rest around. Remember, the size of the plants is always determined by the size of the container. You want to achieve a harmonious look. Big plants in a small pot is not something that will help you with hat.
