This plastic half barrel patio pond made by Ecosure, is a robust and realistic looking rustic half whisky barrel, that can be used to create a small wildlife pond on a hard surface, such as a patio, roof top garden, balcony, courtyard, terrace backyard etc.pond that is perfect for creating a pond quickly and easily on a hard surface, such as a patio,
Simply position the half barrel, and leave it to fill with rainwater, or use some water from a water butt. If you install in the summer and there is little rain, then use tap water, and leave for 24 hours. Add some pebbles and rocks in the water and some native British aquatic plants. if you want amphibians to be able to access the pond, create a ramp using logs, rocks etc at a side, and some type of ledge for them to get out of the water, as the half barrel pond does not have shallow sloping edges.
However, even if you don't do this, it will still be of benefit to wildlife. It will soon attract aquatic insects, and birds. People overlook how great small ponds are for birds. They can attract as many birds to a garden as a bird table with food, as they will drink from it, and bathe in it. Not only will it benefit wildlife, it will also make a nice feature, and add some greenery to a hard surface area. If you want the soothing sound of trickling water, add a 200 litre solar water fountain (see pond and water features category).
It can also be used as a half barrel planter, ideal for cottage gardens.
