    When I was younger my dad this. He used one half as a planter and he turned the other half into a fish pond of sorts. He glued up the inside of it with what I think is the rubber carpenters use on roofs and filled it with  goldfish (the one with big eyes) and assorted plants. It was beautiful!! Unfortunately it was a past time of all the kids on my street (including me) to take the fish out.

    You can buy plastic inserts from the same stores as the barrels that just fit inside the barrels. They will help keep your barrel from rotting out and you don’t have to use as much soil. I drilled holes in the bottom for drainage.
