Water feature from a discarded salad bar

This water garden is made from an old salad bar container discarded from a school cafeteria. I lined it with landscape fabric, filled the bottom with pea gravel, and stacked field rocks around the sides. I place potted water plants in it in the summer, and there's always frogs in it serenading us and eating the bugs. It can be drained through the drain plug in the bottom.
