With a patio pond, you can create a mini pond on your balcony or patio. Patio ponds are pots, washing-up bowls, tubs or dishes which you fill with a mixed basket of aquatic plants. You can buy them ready-made from a garden centre or pond specialist or you can create one yourself. The ready-made patio ponds only need water and you can enjoy them straight away. You can add a few floating plants to for the finishing touches to your patio pond.
Add extra water your patio pond regularly because water can evaporate quickly in summer. Keep your water plants looking good by pruning and thinning them regularly. This will keep them flourishing and that is also good for the water quality.
