I want a floating island but everything I am finding is just not pleasing me. It is either a purchased item that is way too much money and too big or a single floating pot that is too small and ugly or a DIY wetlands raft that is very unattractive. What I am looking for is...\n\n~ 2-3 sq ft \n~As natural looking as possible. Yes it is floating and obviously not natural but I do not want to look at foam or PVC 11.5 months out of the year when the plants are not at their peak. I'm thinking even some burlap might appear like dirt or dry grass, something!\n\nThat's about it really! I want to set it up because with the flow in my pond the lilies only do well in a couple spots leaving 60% of the pond uncovered still by the end of the year. Also for some more frog habitat.\n\nSo I am just looking for any ideas others might have come up with or found as to materials, assemble...anything.
