I was just wondering if any of you have a pond in your backyard? If so – did you install it yourself?
My husband and I have a very nice backyard garden with raised garden beds made with stackable formed stones. It looks great. We even separated our garden into two areas – a patio entertaining area separated by an oval garden bed, and then the back area surrounded by the majority of all of our garden plants.
The only major garden feature that’s missing is a pond, and my husband has always wanted us to have a pond back there. So … I’m thinking about it.
The trouble is that we have a really small yard to begin with. it’s only something like 20 feet wide and 35 feet long and with three to four foot deep garden beds going around the edges of the yard there isn’t much space left over.
If we do put in a pond it will have to be a small one. I guess I’ll have a look at pond supplies and see what I can come up with. Perhaps a small premade plastic pond would work?
Any ideas? I know that making a pond isn’t all that hard, but getting one to fit into a small established garden … that might be hard!
