Always wear safety glasses when working with power tools. Locate any utility lines by calling your local utility company. Do this several days in advance of your project.Spray paint the area of your pond, and dig a hole to the desired size and about 3 feet deep. You can dig by hand or rent a skid loader for a couple hundred dollars a day.
Install a rubber liner into the hole. Place large rocks around the rubber to keep it from moving while you work. Secure pump house on outer edge.
Layer large and small rocks in pond for natural look. For deeper ponds use less rocks, shallow ponds use more.
