So you want to put a pond in your yard? You may or may not be aware that you do not need a large yard to install a pond. For different sizes of yards, there are a variety of pond ideas. Regardless of which of the numerous pond concepts you choose, there are specific recommendations and upkeep considerations you should make before beginning excavation.
Where should I put my backyard pond?
While installing a pond isn’t rocket science, there are a few things to consider before settling on a spot. Ponds are one of the best water options because they are popular with both people and wildlife. You should situate your pond near a deck or patio so that you may benefit from its exercise, beauty, and sound. Locate it near an electrical supply so that lighting, pumps, and other equipment may be powered. If this is a concern, modest stand-alone photovoltaic panels can be installed. Shade is often a good thing for yard ponds, but make sure it gets some sunlight. Any plant or animal life that you have in your pond will grow faster if there is enough light.
Don’t forget that birds love backyard ponds!
