create a Wine Bottle/Barrel Fountain with your 22" Rustic Oak Barrel,(see attached) was a hit on Facebook last week. Home Depot has the BEST prices on the barrel, pea gravel, pond pump for this project..(that is not wine

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lm Patio pond
I purchased two of these 16 months ago to use as patio ponds complete with water lilies , bog plant and small fish. They have held up very well outside in So.Calif. with no distortion at all from the weight of the water and they look great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LynnInPhoenix Love these barrel's!
I started with 1 and within 3 weeks added 3 more. Drilling holes in the bottom was very easy. I've planted flowering bush type plants like Hibiscus, Cape Plumbago and Coral Fountain and all are doing great which says a lot living in Phoenix! I only gave 4 stars for quality since I don't know yet how well they will hold up-hopefully for a very long time. Oh and the price is great too!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bilberg Description should say "faux" iron band
It's a fair value, but it's totally resin. Not too thick, it remains to be seen how long it will last. Nice appearance, though. Yes, you need to drill drainage holes, unless you want to use it as an outer pot.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Luvinlivin Size not as I thought
This is a solid and nice looking pot but not as large as some posts relate. It is only 2' X 2'...it is not three feet high. The overall look is nice but not as large as I had hoped.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IrishChannelNOLA Great for size
I do a lot of container gardening so I needed a lot of planters and wanted them to coordinate. I also wanted them to let the plants stand out. They're a great size width- and height-wise. They let me plant multiple plants if i want and they keep the plants high enough off the ground so that I do not have as much of a problem with insects versus when they are in or low to the ground. I have been able to purchase twice as many large containers compared to the regular whiskey barrels which are normally $40. They have been surviving the New Orleans weather great. The only thing I have had to do to them is to drill holes in the bottom before use. They are easy to move across the yard even when full.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NBM81 These are a great alternative.
I have zero complaints about these barrels. I have 5 of them and am about to purchase another 5 for this coming growing season. I have a relatively extensive container garden and these work great for almost anything. I have 18 strawberry plants in one barrel and they absolutely thrive. Next season I will be using them for a variety of peppers, eggplants, more strawberries, cucumbers and several varieties of root vegetables.
If you're looking for an attractive, very durable planter that doesn't cost a lot and works perfectly fine, you really can't go wrong. Highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hillgal Great & affordable
These barrels are the best that I have had compare to the plastic containers. I drilled holes in the bottom for drainage and thy keep every thing growing. Going to get 2 more of them.
