How much is a small amount of money ? 50, 200, 1000
A few things to bear in mind when locating your pond.
NEVER locate it under trees, total shade or total sun ;-
- Under trees - falling leaves
- Total shade - plants can't photosynthesis
- Total sun - problems with green water
Lets face it, building ponds is expense, I know because I've spent thousands of pounds building them. If your into recycling, I have made a pond at my allotment from an old bath, dig a hole, drop it in, put the plug in lol and plant around the sides.
If a bath is not to your liking, do what my neighbour done. Lined it with black pond lining probably bought from argos to disguise the fact it's a bath - it works !! I've checked on the Argos site and there is 2 sizes to choose from.
If your thinking about keeping fish, a pond this size would house 2 pond fish nicely - do keep in mind that pond fish and aquatic plants grow bigger then indoors. Oh, and remember to put in steps, should any wildlife wish to visit your pond they'll be able to climb out, you'll be surprised how many people overlook this very important detail.
