If you want to create a garden pond, we will give you a quick and easy instructions for building the pond basin and some creative ideas about the design.
Garden pond ideas – build the pond basin by yourself
Step 1 – Materials- If you want to create a garden pond, need two wooden boards of cedar, which are 80cm / for pages / and three 20cm long wooden boards for the widths and the divider. Cut the bottom out of plywood.Step 2 – Installation – Glue the pieces together with glue for wood and secure the sides to each other with additional bolts. Glue the board in the center, which will serve as a divider – and attach it to the sides with nails. Let the pond basin dry and coat the bottom with waterproof paint. Place a sheet on it, if you want to have fish swimming in the pond. The garden pond is now split into two – on one side you have to drill holes in the bottom – there you will add plants and soil and install the drainage. On the other half, you do not need holes as it will serve as the aquarium for the fish.
Plants and stones for the garden pond
You can fill the side with the holes with soil and plants as per your choice. Decorate with stones. In the other part, you can add water and aquatic plants. If desired, you can install a fountain pump in advance. Ready! You can also enjoy our other proposals with combinations of seating bench and garden pond below.
