Outdoor garden ponds add beauty and tranquility to your residential or commercial outdoor spaces. If you are thinking about upgrading your landscaping, an outdoor pond may become a potential water feature option. However, it’s vital to have a complete understanding of what you should and should not do as you move forward with installation. Keep reading for three do’s and don’ts of installing an outdoor garden pond.

  1. Arranging Pond Stones

  2. Do: Include stones of varying shapes and sizes to create a natural look, and arrange them to avoid low spots that can cause leaks.

    Don’t: Include sharp or coarse stones with rough or jagged edges. Sharp rocks can puncture the pond lining.

  3. Creating the Right Pond Dimensions

  4. Do: Build the pond basin to be deep enough to keep fish safe during the colder months.

    Don’t: Position the pond near the lowest points in the yard, as this will lead to runoff issues.

  5. Dealing with Bugs

  6. Do: Ensure the pond and surrounding area is clean by removing standing water where mosquitos can thrive. Also, keep the water in the pond moving to avoid stagnant water, which attracts bugs.

    Don’t: Use insecticides in or around the pond.
