    Hi everyone, I currently one of those big blue tubs, the largest size sold in neighbourhood LFS, sitting in my living room. It is used to house 1 RES.

    The tub sticks out like a sore thumb and I wonder if anyone has ideas to make it look better. I've seen some of those custom-made with wood or stone edgings but it does not look easy to be done; I'm afraid if I DIY it might look tacky, also I've seen stone slabs sold at nurseries but they are really heavy.

    Any ideas?

    Perhaps you could look at wrapping the tub with some artificial grass?

    Check out my example: http://www.aquaticquotient.com/forum...r-Balcony-Pond

    ohhh I had forgotten about that. Any new updates to your blog?

    And where do you buy that grass? I did remember seeing some turf at Far East Flora but I recall it was pretty pricey.

    Yeah, there are various grades of those artificial grass carpets... i just choose the cheapest grade one, around $10+ for a square meter size. Was enough material to cut into a few panels and glue to the sides and corners of the tub.

    Ivan, Daiso is selling those small sized picket fence, maybe you want to take a look at it. It is used to cover those flower/plant pot found commonly on hdb walkway.
