Making an Inexpensive Garden Pond
Our garden pond is one of the best features of our backyard. We used recycled materials to build it, so it's not an expensive project. Just roll up your sleeves, get the kids to help, and you can build your own garden pond!

Lynne Webb on Oct 10, 2017I bought a large pre formed pond. I edged it with stone and some overhanging. I loved it and worked at it for years trying to keep the algae out. I would drain to a safe level, scrub the sides as I went getting out the gunk and in no time it lost it's sparkle and was a mess again. Personally, I would never attempt one. I suspect intense sun was my problem. I had a recirculating pump and tried to do all the right things. A water lily or two for shade, water hyacinths. And yet I have a friend who has an ancient concrete pond on her property. The water is dark as a dungeon but all who inhabit seem happy. It's cleaned out on rare occasions. Go figure!
