My husband made this pond himself. He bought all those stuffs like cement, wood plank etc. At first it look like a rectangle container made of cement. Later he adds the sides on top and I added some potted plants and there it is, a lovely fish pond.
Took him about few days to come up with the pond and about a week to leave it to dry. After it was dried properly, we have to add water and check for leakage. It did leak at first, after some patches here and there, finally, perfect. After a week or so, filled it with water and added some small fishes to test it out to see if it is "fish safe".
We still have those small fishes in it. Maybe by end of this year, we might change to rearing "koi" fish. The pond is about a year (plus) old by now. We keep changing and adding plants and those lovely tiny "animals" around the pond.
Guess now it serves like our "doll house". We would decorate and redecorate and never satisfy. Another hobby to keep both of us busy and happy too. Something to show off and be proud of it. That's the different between D.I.Y and ready made stuffs. Especially when neighbors, family and friends drop by and praise the pond, we would proudly say that we did it ourselves.
Just something to show off. Thanks for reading. Hope you are inspired to make your own fish pond too. You can get all the information needed from the internet.
