Most gardeners dream of having a beautiful pond in their yard. But having one is just too expensive. You need to hire a landscape designer and shell out hundreds if not thousands of dollars to get a pond. Right?
Not anymore. With the DIY project we’re introducing to you below, you can create a small garden pond for just about $30. See how easy it is now…
If you want a fancy garden pond, you’ll need liners and extensive planning. But for this DIY garden pond, things are simpler and cheaper.
Just get a large Rubbermaid container to keep water in, a fountain or solar powered pump, some concrete pavers, rocks and stones, and plant tolerant water.
Now find the best location in your yard or garden for your new pond.
“Decide where to place your water feature. If you don’t have power nearby, consider a solar powered fountain pump,” Garden Glove recommends.
Anchor your pump in place with a few large stones or rocks. Lay the flat cement pavers on the edge to cover the plastic container. The stones and pavers also cover power cords and unwanted things.
Put your water plant in the perfect spot and use rocks to hold it and its planter in place.
Now fill your DIY garden pond up with water and adjust your pump settings as needed.
TIP from Garden Glove: "Clean your water feature on a regular basis, and use an algae inhibitor available at your home improvement store where they sell pond supplies."
