Water Containers on your deck

Posted by Tammy Sons on

By Tammy Sons

Having a water container on your deck is like having a small water garden on your porch or deck. You can find several varieties of plants that will grow well in these containers. This will add a very natural appearance to your deck also. You can use things for a water container that you may just have laying around in your yard.

You can use kiddie pools, barrels, bathtubs and also horse troughs. You do need to make sure that it is a sturdy deck because water can weight around 8 pounds per gallon. You also need a sunny spot since most water plants will require full sunlight. You can also decorate your water containers with pieces of slate and stone. If you use the darker colors it will not produce as much algae. You can start by growing your water plants in smaller pots before placing them in your water container. Once you plant your plant in the soil you can use pea gravel to keep the soil in the pot and keep it from floating to the top. You will need to get information on how to plant your water plants because they may take different size pots. Some of them may need to be planted deeper than others. Once you get your plants potted and ready you can start adding them to your water containers. You can also sit your pots on bricks to give your plants different heights. Let you water container sit with water in it for at least 24 to 48 hours to let the chlorine evaporate. You can let you imagination go when creating a water container. The best thing to do is order your water plants from an online plant nursery, they will be cheaper than a home and garden center.
