"How To" Videos
I have had a few requests to do more videos. Suffice it to say, I still have to get used to seeing myself for long periods of time on a big screen without hiding my eyes in horror, getting on a lemon water diet immediately and slapping my forehead in embarrassment.
But for you, I will get over it. So I plan on populating this with a lot more than my container pond video below. I wish to post videos like how make that pie crust that was a finalist in the "Williams Sonoma Fall Pie Contest", or how to do mosaic projects for the garden. Stuff like that.
I just ask you be kind, and I hope that they help and inspire!
How to Build a Container Pond
I have had in-ground ponds and I have had small container ponds and have learned through trial and error the success of building and maintaining them. If you want to enjoy a water feature in your yard and don't have time or space to deal with a big pond, a container pond is perfect for you. This video will take you through step by step how to do it. For the extended "director's cut", go to our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/TheUrbanDomesticDiva.
Also, fair warning, I refer to the Water Lettuce as Water Hyacinth and I have been corrected a lot on YouTube about it (siiigh). But that's what the fluffy green water plants that float on top are.
I knew that.
Here's the link to the container pond video. (YouTube won't let me embed my own video. How do you like that? grumble, grumble...)
