Hi everyone! Here's a bizarre idea...could I use a large, round, plastic trash can for a water garden? If so, is there any way I can paint the exterior to make it a little more attractive? My family is moving to another apartment within a few weeks, and my landlord has requested that any water gardens are confined to the patio, which is about 5 ft by 30 inches...I need something that is both compact AND provides the height required to convince water lilies to bloom (though obviously it's going to take some thought to get marginals to grow in this thing!). Thanks!
