DIY Backyard Garden Pond Mini | Raised Wooden Fish Pond
To bring a charming and dreamy appeal to the backyard of the house, i have converted a wishing well in to a raised wooden fish pond. Backyard garden pond has a hexagonal design and extra timber has been added to the base to make it more sturdy so it could hold water. Wooden wishing well fish pond has a more natural, rustic and aesthetic look.
I have attached a fountain kit to create a water feature but i am planning to build a pond filter using buckets. Backyard garden pond embraces a nature-inspired textures, simple and earthy colors, and ultimately an unpretentious, organic warmth.
All the timber used in the project has been sealed to make it last against the elements and termite infestation. Recycled styrofoam has been used under the pond liner to provide insulation and keep the garden pond water warm in colder months of Melbourne. It will also stop any splinters and other objects from puncturing the pond liner.
In terms of safety, low voltage pond pump and pond light has been used and pond filter system made of buckets can act as planter, making it a statement piece for the garden. I am planning to add small Australian native fish to the fish pond and decorative roof made of timber will provide shade in summer and will also stop the rain water going into the pond. This little garden pond is well equipped to meet the challenges imposed by harsh Melbourne weather.
A great and easy way to introduce a pond into your garden is by converting a decorative outdoor wishing well into a fish pond. Size is not a big requirement as i am only planning to keep small native Australian fish and it is an epic backyard fish pond for my garden.Visit my blog to read more articles on aquarium, filter and aquatic plants https://www.fishaholic.net/
