The first thing i ever did 15 yrs ago was a 16x20 ft pond and over the yrs it's silted up slighty and on it's own i now have iris and other pond plants that arrived with the birds.
lots of garden birds that wash and feed in the waterfall,beetles, boatmen, dragonfly nypmph and others that i don't know what they are. I do this as it brings my garden alive at the cost of a home built pond made out of curtain siders off a old waggon, cost of £ 70.
We have had two pair of ducks and mallards every year for the past six yrs, but they do get a bit much with 14 babies each, they wreck the pond every yr, but it always perks back up again.
