Several materials

Know that you can make your garden pond in several ways. Once your site has been dug, you can opt for a tarpaulin to be laid, a concrete structure or a preformed fiber basin. The concrete structure will be the most complex to implement because it requires a certain number of works. On the other hand, there is always a risk of cracking which will be difficult to manage. The preformed basins are of good quality on the solidity side. You can find various forms and the installation is very simple. Finally the PVC tarpaulin offers you many possibilities.

The location

When creating your garden pond, the choice of location is essential. A bit like for swimming pools, it will be necessary to choose a sufficiently clear place. It is not recommended to place it under a tree because of the leaves which will fall into the water but also from the underground roots which could break your pond. The pool should also not be too sunny for the well-being of plants or fish. As for the size, know that there is no rule. However, it is advisable to make a basin with several depths for a better balance of living organisms that will settle there. Good to know : consider installing a filtration system that will guarantee clear and limpid water. Photos to inspire or to dream… Discover "Decorative photos"
