  • My dad made a couple. For one he just dug a hole and lined it with heavy duty plastic, securing itvaround the edges with big rocks. Another he dug a hole and lined it with concrete



  • you will need to put mesh over it or the birds will eat the fish – until the plants grow, plants are important to keep mozzies from breeding in the water. There is an app call ‘instructibles’ great how to app



  • My dad did. He dug a hole and put in a plastic one. He’s also dug a hole and lined it with plastic. Either way, it didn’t cost too much. Sadly for the fish, dads ducks liked to swim in it……A LOT!



  • get a liner, pump and rocks for edging. very cheap.



  • Totally awesome idea for a fish pond mom153507 – absolutely love it!



  • We used a kids shell pool.
    Dug out the hole, covered the pool in black plastic, lowered it in & surrounded the edges with large rocks.
    Popped in a few rocks and some gold fish for decoration & it looks great!
    Best part is it’s portable so if we decide to move house or just want to place it somewhere in the yard we can :)



  • Sounds great mom137420 – good on you!



  • We built a fish pond in the back yard using old scrap pieces,wooden sleepers & black plastic was on the floor,decorated with rocks & plants from the garden ,cost nothing.
