Pond kits
For many people, pond kits are easier to use when creating a pond for the first time. It is easier to let the experts put everything together and then add your own personal touches after the pond is installed and working. A pond kit will usually include the following items: pond liners, filters, pumps, skimmers, pvc pipes, check valve assembly, and a silicon sealer.

Now, depending on the manufacturer, some pond kits will include lighting, waterfalls, fountains, bio-seed, plant food, and more. It really all depends on your taste, time, and budget. Pond kits start around $600 and can run up to $5000. So, you really need to take time to plan the kind of pond you want before you start shopping for a pond kit.

When planning on your new pond, there are several points to consider. You will need to think about size, type, the materials in the pond, whether you want a waterfall or a fountain, and the placement of the pond. You will also need to put aside time to install and maintain your pond, so plan accordingly.

Pond kits come in a wide variety. A quick search on the internet will bring up many sites selling several different types of pond kits. You can get kits that come in a portable wooden fountain, or a pond kit that helps you build a natural-looking pond in the ground. There are also bird pond kits, pond kits in a barrel, and many more. Your pond is only limited by your creativity.

For instructions on assembling or installing your pond kit, you will want to refer to your own kit. But there are some general rules for installation that you will want to know before you begin. First, decide where you want to place your pond. Decide on the shape and size and then outline it with yarn or chalk.

When digging your hole, start about two inches outside of the line and dig down at least 18 inches. If you are planning on having Koi fish, you will need to dig down at least 2 feet. Next, you will want to smooth out the edges and the bottom. Lay sand on the bottom to smooth it out further and to assist with drainage. You will then put in your pond liner. After that, much of the installation varies depending on what kind of pond you are building.

Using the above suggestions, you should be able to find a pond kit that fits your needs and creates a beautiful focal point in your garden.
