I have added this build to the list because it shows a couple steps that other builds do not . these little tips i feel are important. One being to install underlayment both under and over the liner if you plan to install rock in the pond. And a second new material that adds to the weight capability of aquablox and how to work around area restrictions like finding river rock in Florida where it's all coral rock .

These are all so much fun! I'm in the process of building my second pond. It will be out in the backyard and the primary purpose is to attract and support wildlife. We have a lot of wildlife in our area due to proximity to the national park. But the suburban sprawl and over-development is just terrible. We have a lot of habitat loss. Hence, my wonderful "excuse" to put in another pond! The challenge for me, as I drool over all these videos is two-fold: I have to be creative within my budget and make the pond as attractive and natural as I can - with limited funds. The second challenge will be being at peace with the fact that I am one person with no large equipment and no additional money to rent or hire. So - no giant and fantabulous boulders for me. I have been tossing around the idea in my head of doing some big DIY fake boulders around the outer areas. Have you seen people make those? They almost just do a big blop of concrete on the ground, then work the surface to mimic stone. I'm pretty artsy, so I could probably do it. All these pond videos are such wonderful inspiration!

I have seen concrete recreations as i have built a couple my self on some crazy projects to hide speakers etc a long time ago. The big thing in that process is to dye the concrete as you mix it the color will never go away but when you add it up to make a larger boulder with wire mesh and concrete time spent and overall appearance you dont save a lot. if you place some adds on local builtin boards at the coffee shop or talk to landscapers working in your area you never know in time some one may have a project close by and they might be able to help you out for pocket change especially where your pond i believe was right next to your driveway or do i have you confused with another recent build

A small back yard becomes a backyard they never want to leave
