When you start to make the ponds, you will need to have the pots that you can use to hold the water. There are many pond pots which are made by the use of the metal, porcelain, sealed cement, plastic and ceramic. The wash tubs or old crocks may also be used as the small water gardens in containers. You need to be creative when it comes to choose the pot. You should not use wood containers since they have the bacteria that can be harmful to the fish and plants. If you want to use wood, you should prepare it with the pre-formed plastic liner or a plastic bag. The right size of the ponds to use is going to depend on the space you have and how many plants or fish you want to plant.
