It is nice to have a backyard pond at home, that serve as a good source of natural view, fish and aquatic plants, glassy reflections, and water for wildlife. If you want to build a small backyard pond, all you need are sand and liner. Aside from these essential materials, it is good to invest in pond pumps, filters, and plants to always keep your pond water fresh by removing and recycling waste, providing shade, and adding oxygen, and you can also create a hardscape edging using pavers, stones, and other building materials. When it comes to edging materials, the materials used include stones, bricks, or pavers made of granite, slate, or sandstone. Pond plants help in preventing water from being offensive and stagnant, a protection for the pond liner, and helps in producing nutrients and oxygen to keep the pond water fresh.

In order to prevent pond water to be soaked in the soil, you'll need waterproof liner which is usually made of ethylene propylene diene monomer, polyvinyl chloride, or butyl rubber. The life-span of PVC liners is greatly influenced by direct sunlight, but ensure you choose a PVC liner that has a fish-friendly label, and they come with different usage and thickness which usually lasts from 7 to 50 years. Although more expensive than PVC liners, butyl rubber liners have sunlight resistant so they are more durable, flexible, and long-lasting than PVC types, but are not ideal for backyard ponds where wildlife drink. When it comes to other pond liner options, they include fiberglass rigid liners and semi-rigid plastic pond liners. Fish ponds need water pumps to supply enough oxygen and filters to clean pond water. Surface water pumps are suitable for small pumps, and submersible pumps may create little disturbance or noise.   Get Supplies For Ponds here!

When it comes to a larger fish pond, they need  more maintenance than small ponds, and it is worth the additional effort, for a better movement, color, and an element of the dramatic landscape. It is best to purchase a water pump from a trusted, reliable, and reputable company like Laguna Pond Products that supplies high-quality pond products. When it comes to the two types of water pumps for fish ponds, one can be mounted outside the pond (has pipes outside)  and one that works underneath the pond water (with prettier effect since it is not visible). It is best to use a pump with a filtration system to remove fish waste containing high ammonia that can be dangerous to your fish. Get more facts about ponds at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pond.
