DIY Backyard Garden Pond

  • Published on:  6/22/2019
  • The pond build is finally here! I've been talking about this for months and thought that it would have been done about a month ago, but the whole thing is just so time consuming, especially with the weather we've been having. Like I said in the video, this has been going on since October of 2018 and was just a concept long before that. The whole reason that I even built this is for my goldfish, so stocking in non-negotiable... other than more goldfish lol (4 won't be enough).

    This is only the first part of a few video series and I hope it gives you a good idea as to what's possible outside the realm of naturalistic ponds. Obviously that's what we all want, but sometimes it's just not feasible because of cost. Even though it's not the same type of thing, these kind of ponds can still be beautiful in their own sort of way. Plus you can create a good home for your beloved fish, which is often what it's all about.

    There's so much more I could say, but the video should be able to do most of the talking. If you have any specific questions or want to see something else in the next installment, please let me know down in the comments. This one took forever, so I really hope you enjoy it.

    Also a huge thanks for Oase for supplying the pumps! It was a huge burden off of me and was really appreciated. I'm using the Waterfall Pump 1650 for the skimmer and will be using AquaMax Eco Premium 3000 for the rest. I'll talk more about those in the next video and put some links below.
