Step 2: Step 2

Begin the excavation. If a smaller water feature is being constructed, a depth of three to five feet is ideal. If a hard tub liner is needed, slide this in to place, making sure there is little chance of leakage over the sides of the pond into the space beneath the pool liner. If a flexible liner is being used, make sure that there is enough overlap on to un-dug ground until the rest of the work is done. These liners may require a water plant or two to keep them submerged until the air is worked out. Stones work well also.

Emma, that is a very nice pond! I can feel stress melting away just by looking at the photo. <br>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 &quot;diary&quot; of you doing so would have been better - we could otherwise have just gone to the watergarden.com site for the same instructions. <br>Don't let that stop you making more Instructables, but do remember intellectual property rights. Cheers.

Beautiful!<br /> 2&nbsp;questions: Where are you situated and what plants did you used?
&nbsp;you should at least tell us were you &quot;got&quot; your info from&nbsp;<br /> <a href="http://watergarden.com/pages/build_wg.html" rel="nofollow">watergarden.com/pages/build_wg.html</a><br />
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.
