Are you looking for garden pond ideas? The peaceful calmness and tranquility of water, plants and even wildlife in their natural habitat is so relaxing. Here are some of the best water gardens that you can easily DIY in your own backyard.
Use Pond Liner for Your Installation
This gorgeous landscape is created using pond liner which is a durable Earth friendly polymer that is flexible. Most popular home improvement stores carry them. Edged with large limestone, short plants and sprinkled with lily pads, what is there not to love about this charming oasis?
Edged with a variety of stacked rocks and plant life, this enchanting garden pond has a system in place to keep the fish happy.
Garden Bridges Make It Spectacular
A wood garden bridge connects the path along the side of this little slice of paradise. The koi fish swim around playfully. When thinking about the types of plants to use around the edges, consider plants that love sunlight. Bridges are a great way to add character to your water garden.
A Naturally Flowing Waterfall
Create interest and variety. Some garden pond ideas incorporate makeshift waterfalls such as this one which involves stacking rocks and building a flowing stream.
If you don’t want to dig a hole for your pond, no worries! You can still have a gorgeous water garden above the ground. This one is created out of a large round container, lined and decorated with a gorgeous retaining wall. The homeowners then filled it with several types of water plants, rocks of varying shapes, colors and sizes and colorful fish.
