Step 5: Step 5: Position Rocks

Gently ease your rocks onto the sides and where possible, allow them to overlap the bricks completely. This step allows complete coverage of the pond liner and is the decorative part of the pond. It is handy to have a number of rocks to choose from so you can play with their positioning until you are happy with how it looks.

Fill the pond up to the bottom of the bricks.

Great job!! Time you took a break!

how do u install the fountain pump into your pond and what is its function?<br>
<p>I have a similar element in my pond, all it does is filter out and sticks or leaves that find their way into your pond. In stalling it is just putting it in the bottom of the pond with some stones sitting on it to stop it floating up. I know that there are kits that you can get from hardware or gardening stores that come with a pump. I hope thatg this is useful.</p>

<p>Thank you for such a great set of instructions and images! I'm really keen to get started ASAP. :)</p>
Great job and thanks for writing advices. Hope your fishes are having fun :)
nice, I especially like the 'wetland' part. <br>I would recommend adding some stones or anything to let any unfortunate critter (example hedgehog) to climb out of the pond if they wander in.
great pond, where abouts did you get the liner as it seems pretty cheap.
My family&nbsp;builted large pond before like the ones on your instructions, and it&nbsp;turned out great.
it is good one<br />
I love it.&nbsp; Great work.<br />
Hi <a href="../../../member/metanoia/" rel="nofollow" style="margin: 0.0px;" title="view metanoia's profile">metanoia</a>,<br /> <br /> I like your pond, you have made a very instructive video, and the picture/steps take anyone through this process easily, fantastic job, I love fish and ponds, I have a double pond feature myself, and I am currently also rebuilding another one, a raised one.<br /> cheers <br />
&nbsp;Best and most authentic pond instructable I've seen today. Beautiful pictures and outcome!<br />
&nbsp;That's pretty expensive for a linder, would there be any alternatives? Like, multiple layers of thick plastic sheets?<br /> <br /> Otherwise, great Instructable, I hope that you're happy with your pond!<br /> <br />
The pondliner I got&nbsp;is like thick, waterproof tarpaulin material. I thought what I got was pretty cheap considering the &quot;good&quot; stuff which is solid plastic was $40/m. You want to ensure that whatever you get&nbsp;is waterproof, won't easily tear or rip, and won't degrade quickly in the sun.<br /> <br /> Quite a reasonable price though considering a solid shell at about the same size was $300+<br /> <br /> Still very happy with my pond. Our plants are growing like crazy and the fish are doing very well.
&nbsp;Ok, thanks!&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Great job!<br />
