Finally we decided to tackle the back pond! We took everything out and rebuilt for a deeper, bigger pond. The ducks love it!
Time: 1 Days Cost: $300 Difficulty: Medium
The ducks taking their last swim in the old pond. This was at most in the deepest area around 15 inches deep.
Deciding on the laying and spacing of the cement blocks.
We also covered up any sharp edges with pieces of old liner.
Ready for the liner!
Finally got the liner in...the small area and a huge liner was a bit of a challenge..now we have a pond at least 2 1/2 feet deep.
The next step was putting down the artificial turf, we placed a slight slope here as well to prevent too much run in...
We still have to put the fence greenery up, do the waterfall, and put in the extended water filter system with UV and lay mulch in some areas along with planting.
plants planted,,some decor...still have to find thin slabs of rocks to lay under blocks over the edge to hide pond liner....
This is what it looks like at night, so pretty!
Materials I used for this project:
- Artificial turf (Lowes)
- Cement blocks (local bargain store)
- Pond liner (ebay)
