A pond with my own hands: a neighbor dug three pits in the backyard ... I thought for a long time why?
Many gardeners want to have a pond on their plot, at least a small one. The water is pleasantly refreshing, and the soul is resting looking at the water. However, I really appreciated the small amount of land that many people refuse from the reservoir in the country. And absolutely nothing! You can easily make your own pond in the country with your own hands, even in the smallest summer cottage.
We have found an absolutely amazing way to make a do-it-yourself pond that will cost you very cheap. All you need is old tires and your hard work.
Pond do it yourself on the plot
To make a decorative pond with your own hands you will need tires of different diameters. This example uses 3 tires, but you can use any number of tires. The main thing - to know the technology, how to make a pond of tires.
Determine the layout of the garden, where the reservoir will be located in the country with their own hands. Dig a hole for each tire to the diameter. The diameter of the pit should correspond to the diameter of the tire. At the bottom of the future reservoir pour not a layer of sand, 3–5 centimeters (the layer of sand should not be thin).
Install tires into prepared pits. To ensure that the future pond in the garden is flat, use a level when installing tires.
The upper part of the tire should be trimmed so that the decorative pond is of a larger diameter. This can be easily done with a circular saw.
Make sure the edges of the trimmed tire are flat.
Align the interior of the future artificial pond with your own hands with the help of cladding. You can use regular polyethylene for this, but we advise you to purchase a special waterproofing material. Bring the edges of the material out and secure it by placing large stones.
Mini pond do it yourself requires a certain design. The easiest way to enclose it around decorative stones or pebbles. Plant moisture-loving and shade-loving plants or ornamental grass around the pond.
Prefer unpretentious colors. Grow well near the host pond, sedge, astilba, catchment, irises.
Having planted the plants around the pond with their own hands and having decorated it with stones, rather fill the reservoir with water.
Voila, a small personal oasis is ready. A real highlight of landscape design!
In this way, sometimes completely stupid things at first glance, things can turn into a real work of art. A pond in the country with their own hands will certainly become a source of good mood and relaxation not only for you, but also for guests.
