is such a great way to bring a relaxing focal point to your garden.
You’ve always wanted a waterscape in your backyard, but you
don’t know the first thing about how to start. Here are a few
tips to get your pond started.
First, figure out your budget. This will help you in every other
aspect of planning your pond. You might want a grand pond that covers
half your yard, but only have the budget for a 6 x 6 pond. Once you
have decided how much you are going to spend, decide upon the look
or theme that you are trying to create. Do you want a natural stream
bed pond, or maybe a three-tiered wooden bucket pond? Believe it or
not, the kind of pond you have is only limited by your creativity.
Next, you will need to decide what supplies are necessary for your
pond. A pond kit usually comes with a pump, a filter, a skimmer, a
pond liner, and a sealant. Some research will be required in deciding
what kinds of supplies are best for your own specific type of pond.
Of course, after installing the pond, you will want to add fish, plants,
and other pond accessories. So, be sure to include this in your budget.
The last step in the planning stages of putting in a pond is to decide
where to place it. You will want to outline a specific spot with yarn,
spray paint or another type of marker. Once, you’ve done this,
then you are ready to install your pond.
