I want to construct a rectangular, raised, timber-framed, ornamental pool, for a couple of irises and water lilies - no fish. The area is 8 ft X 4ft (2.4m X 1.3m) approx. I don't want it to be more than 2ft (60cms) above ground level, ideally. Is this depth sufficient to grow these plants in baskets, placed on the pool base, allowing for winter cold/freezing of the water, etc.? Thank You!
