Curious? Head on over to Apartment Therapy to see how it’s done.

My two cents: It’s certainly beautiful, but, like many of the commenters on the site, I’d be a bit concerned about mosquitos if this water garden were on my balcony. Maybe there are plants—or, barring that, a pump system—that could prevent that?

    Just toss in a mosquito dunk and you won’t have any mosquito to worry about (I’m guessing the smaller bird bath size would be about right?).

    Fish are also used to control mosquitos in small ponds. What about little fish in this little pond?
