Setting up 75 gallon. Please advise

So, I got a good deal on this pond, I was wondering if anyone else uses these types? Stocking will be 1 gold fish, and what ever plants I can cram in here (mostly hyacinth and water lettuce floating).

Last year I had a 30g container pond with just an air tube to move water. Never fed, the Goldie loved it. I was wondering If I need filtration. Oxygen seems the only problem as floaters will zap out ammonia/nitrites.

Here she is;


-Can I only bury the bottom portion? I feel like the sides would buckle
-As asked above, is filtration necessary? I would like to avoid it if I could.
-How long can I expect this thing to last? Should I drain it in the winter?
