a small pond for a patio or yard. another view of the beautiful lotus bowl i posted earlier. every plant in the bowl had been left in its original one gallon black pot with soil. the pots were topped with gravel so the fish couldn't root out the plants with their little snouts. the pots were placed on bricks stacked to provide different heights for the plants depending on their depth requirements. this lotus bowl was a joy to make and I loved to look at it every day...if you would like a plant list for your pond let me know in the comments.
