The first thing you need to do is choosing the area for your pond. Don’t choose a spot too close to trees, because it may damage their root systems. Most ponds do best in spots that get mixed sun and shade, since this environment allows plants to grow.
You may want to locate the pond in a place you can see from your home, so you can enjoy it even in cold or rainy weather. After you decide the spot for your pond, you can make the decision for the size and depth of the pond. You can also design the shape of your pond by making an outline.
Make sure your spot is free from buried materials so you can start to dig the pond. You can use shovel or rent a back hoe on how to build a pond. After you finish digging the pond in the desired depth, you can install the underlayment and pond liner. Make sure the pond is free of any sharp objects that could puncture the liner.
Line the pond with a layer of sand, making sure to cover every crevice. Next add a layer of biodegradable materials, such as newspapers or burlap. Cover this layer with a large piece of waterproof pond liner. Then you can add rocks to protect your liner from harm ad add natural beauty.
You can even use a few very large rocks as focal points as well. Once your rock is done, you can start filling the pond with water. Now you can install your accessories and begin to landscape around your pond. Trim away large excess liner and underlayment.
Here we are, the pond is done. Let the pond sit for a few days before adding any fish or plants. You can make your pond by knowing the steps of how to build a pond.
