Look for quality barrels, with no loose bands or staves. Loose bands and staves may look easy to repair however this does require some skill to do properly.
Using wine barrels as a planter or water feature
It can be advisable to line a wooden wine barrel with a pond liner to prevent leakage, normal pond pumps can be used to turn the barrel into a water feature. If using as a wooden planter make sure you drill proper drainage holes and preferably lift the barrel above ground level by standing it on some bricks or similar.
Although barrels do work well and have a rustic look to them, they will in time deteriorate. Using Liners, sitting them of the ground for protection and keeping them free from moss and mould will prolong their life in the garden.
