This Man Proved That It’s Not Hard To Build Your Own Fish Pond
When Instructables user antoniraj noticed the amount of wildlife that actively visited his backyard, he decided to create a space just for them. Many of these animals would drink from a small water bowl that needed to be filled daily. To give them a watering hole that wouldn’t require constant attention, he set out to build a small backyard fish pond. This would serve as both a source of nourishment for the animals, while also providing a quiet space to sit around and relax.
Antoniraj began by selecting the perfect location for the pond.
The future site of his fish pond required a bit of cleaning before he could begin his build.
You can’t have a pond without digging out and excavating the dirt.
To avoid any risk, he completed an anti-termite treatment on the pond area.
Using some of the dirt he dug up, he created a mud plaster and applied it to the excavated area.
He spread out a pond liner to avoid any water damage to the area.
Then he edged the pool with a collection of red bricks.
To cover and secure the area, he filled it in with dirt.
No pond is complete without planting a few water flowers.
Antoniraj decided to add some rocks and pebbles, too.
The time had come to fill the pond with water.
It’s called a fish pond for a reason…you need to add fish!
And in no time at all he had a beautiful fish pond that would double as a wildlife watering hole.
Now I may not have the wildlife in my backyard like antoniraj does, but I need this pond in my life like NOW!
