If you’ve got a backyard and adding a water feature is your dream, follow it by trying one of these DIY Water Pond Ideas! I built my first backyard pond about twenty years ago. After seeing a massive in-ground pond on a rural garden tour, I was hooked (that’s it in the photo above). The sound of the waterfall was enticing. Dozens of fat fish frolicked in the waterfall. Dragonflies dipped down to drink and then zotted off into the garden. Squirrels would lean over the edge, taking sips of water with their little red tongues.
There’s nothing quite like the crystalline appearance of a well-designed backyard garden pond to raise your landscaping game. When your flowers, succulents, and lush green lawn are reflected in a handcrafted water feature, the entire look truly pops in a fresh light.
