How To Build A Water Pondadvertisement
Hi, today I will show you how to build a water pond by your self. The first thing you need to do is ask your self where you want to put it? It should be in a place where you see it instantly when you go in your back yard, or you might want to install it on a lost space of your back yard like at the end, the pond will make your yard look deeper, or you can install it in a place where you see it all the time even if you are in your house, personally that is the option I like the most.
The second step is to pick the liner for your pond. You can choose a preformed liner or a soft liner, for this article we will go with the preforme liner. This liner is more durable, easier to install, no conception problem and easier to clean.You have to choose the form before digging so you will have the exact shape and the deep of the hole. Now that you know how big, how deep and where your pond is gone a be, you will have to check with the local authority to see if your plan is conform with their rules, Depending where you live, rules might be different, it is always good to check with them first. When all that is done, it’s time to dig, trace the forme of your pond on your lawn and measure how deep you will have to go and dig two inch deeper than the size of your pond, to fit your liner properly put two inch of sand in the hole your liner will fit better and it will be protected from rocks.
The third step is to bring electicity to the pond, this step should be done by a professional, if it’s more then an extention corde.The other thing you can do is to get a solar pump, this way you dont need wires. After that time to put water into your new pond to see if everything is right. Start the pump to make sure it’s working properly before you start decorathing your pond.
The fourth step, the one people like the most is decorating your pond. Make it look as natural as you can, with rocks, plants to hide wires and the contour of the liner. After that you can ad decorative solar light this will give a nice accent to your pond at night.
Of course in this step I give you the basisses, the only limitation you have in decorathing your pond is your own imagination, push it as much as you can, you will love the result. The thing I love the most about this hobby is that I can up grade or change things as much as I want to, so every year I ad something or change something.
Congratulations you have built your first pond !!
