The idea of building a pond never got through my mind because I thought much of space was needed (which is the case for bigger one but not small ones). So when my parents decided that it was time for us to do renovation both in the house and the yard, I began exploring the internet, magazines and other sources for ideas on different kinds of things for indoors and outdoors to make our life simpler and to have more space. This is where I found a website where a company who specialises in building water features had displayed their creation but also included pictures and videos on the progress when building them and this is where my idea came from.
this is the website which specialises in water features.
Step 1: Research and Plan
Depending on your budget, the place where you live, availability of materials, laws and any other things that might hinder the progress please make sure you plan everything FIRST then act because I was so overwhelm with all these beautiful ponds that I wanted one over night so I didn't pay attention to anything and grabbed everything that I could lay my hands on to just build one and made lots of mistakes.
Here are my mistakes and do learn from them instead of repeating them.
The first picture shows how my front yard was in such a mess which is why I choose this area in the first place.The rest of the pictures show my progress from cleaning the area to digging and finally making the pond (well sort of).
