Converting a tiled water fountain to an above ground flower garden
I am converting an 8x8x1’ ceramic tile lined water fountain to an above ground flower garden. I live in Greeley co which is in hardiness zone 5b, and is a fairly dry climate.
Should I be worried about drainage in this kind of dry climate as I know it will require manual daily watering in the summer months? Should I drill a 3” hole in the side of the lowest corner and run some coiled drainage pipe on the bottom before adding container dirt mix?
This space is northeast facing and gets morning thru late afternoon sun.
