Give your garden a makeover-install a pond

If you want to give your garden a makeover an appealing option is to build garden pond. The relaxing sounds and sights of running water can bring a feeling of calm and serenity to any garden no matter the size. If you think that installing a pond is for you then these are the things you need to consider.

If your garden is small, then obviously a small pond would be better whereas a larger garden could accommodate a larger pond with additional features such as a stream or waterfall. The shape of the pond is also a feature to be decided upon. A kidney shaped pond is a popular choice as this looks aesthetically appealing but in a modern garden a simple circular pond might be a better option.

Once you have decided on the size and shape of your pond you will need to think about the type of pond you want. A wildlife pond which has soft edges with lots of planting surrounding the pond thus allowing frogs and toads easy access is popular or you may prefer a more formal pond with slabbed edging or even a raised edge.

Some people only want a pond as a water feature but If you are going to keep fish in your pond you will need to have a filter system in place to keep the water in good condition so that the fish have the correct conditions to live in.
