My cheap milk crate floating garden.

An experimental design repurposing milk crates and bottles to create a floating garden pool pond!

How darn neat! If I had a dead pool I would sure do that!

Wow, really cool. Can you post updates so we see how it matures, survives, and thrives? I have never seen a floating filter garden like that.
I sure can. So far so good though. Thanks for the interest

I'm amazed the whole unit can support so much stone. Do you have an estimate of how much lbs/in2 you're supporting with just milk bottles and milk crates?

Thanks for the question. It’s supporting roughly 4 tonnes of rock plus plants.
