If you want to build a natural pond, choose a sunny spot to start. With enough sunlight, at least six hours a day, pond plants can grow well. An existing ditch or water feature is often used. The advantage of this solution is that the water supply is already taken care of. You start by digging out the contours of the natural pond. Once this is done, existing water from a ditch or other water feature can flow into the newly dug pond and make a connection. This is because it is important to keep the water level naturally at the right level. Simon recommends doing the deepest part from -1 to -2 meters. If you also want to fish in your natural pond, make sure the pond is at least -80 cm deep. Want to read more about how to make a natural pond? Then check out our blog: Natural pond in the garden.
