Planning A Garden

I am currently in the planning stage of creating a miniature garden. I have collected quite a lot for my garden, most of it made by others from swaps.

My mother-in-law gave me an aquarium and I am going to attempt to make my garden inside it. Check out the aquarium garden De created, from De-Lightful Minis. She also has a cute little garden scene inside a watering can. De's wall fountain tutorial is the current featured tutorial on my blog, I can't wait to try it.

I want to make a pond or a stream to go under the bridge, I have never tried anything like this before. Any personal experience, suggestions and/or tips would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking of making a waterfall too.....I hope I'm not biting off more than I can chew!

Wish me luck!

this looks like a ton of fun! my daughter has created a mini fairy garden/terrarium in an old aquarium. it's beautiful when the plants are thriving.

I used some styrofoam I had on hand to create my base but I think builder's foam might be easier to work with. And don't worry about biting off more than you can chew - it's mini stuff. It's supposed to be fun, lol. There's no right answer and you are so creative that your garden will be amazing.
