How to Build a Medium Pond


Step 1

Mark the desired location of the pond with rope or string and dig the hole. Leave a mound of dirt along the perimeter of the pond.


Step 2

Cover the entire area with the liner. The liner should extend over the sides of the pond by 10-12 in.

Step 3

Cover the liner with rock including the 10-12 in. around the perimeter; leave a small area void of rock to run the cords outside the pond. Trim away excess liner.


Step 4

Add pump with assembled nozzle kit and lights to pond. Position the lighting and run the power cord to the outside of the pond; cover cords with rock.

Step 5

Fill pond with water. Add Chlorine Remover before adding any fish or plants to water; it removes chlorine, chloramines, and heavy metals from water.

Step 6

Sit back and enjoy your new creation!
