Adding a garden pond to your landscape is an effective way to increase property value and aesthetic appeal to your backyard. The sound of flowing water is naturally soothing and has been proven to reduce stress and improve overall health. Creating this type of water feature looks harder than it actually is. Here are instructions on building a basic garden pond on your land. Once you have mastered the basic construction, you can get creative and employ added touches like fountains, statues or live fish.

Step 1: Step 1

Analyze the space you have chosen for a pond. Are there trees, rocks or special soil conditions to think about? Can these items be removed or worked into the landscape? Will this be a small pond with a water feature emerging from a slope, or is it a large pond filled by an incoming stream? When you have considered these factors, chalk an outline on the ground.

Emma, that is a very nice pond! I can feel stress melting away just by looking at the photo.
However, I must agree with the others: as this is not your own work, you should have given the original author credit as andytt11 has done below. If you actually built this pond yourself, a pictorial "diary" of you doing so would have been better - we could otherwise have just gone to the watergarden.com site for the same instructions.
Don't let that stop you making more Instructables, but do remember intellectual property rights. Cheers.
cool but what do you use to keep the water in and how mutch was that
thank you for sharing :) i am excited about building a pond!

How much would you estimate this cost? :) --Devorah

Nice and informative, good job. Better than what I see most people do, which is dig a hole, put down some plastic sheets and fill it up.
