Create your own mini - pond :)

Adding a pond or small water garden to your yard creates a multitude of benefits. Water adds a new dimension to any garden and a pond created by you is the ideal place to grow miniature waterlilies and other small aquatic plants. This idea is quick and easy to make and requires minimal care. The larger the container, the more impressive the display, although it's best to limit yourself to one or two well-chosen types of plant. If you use too many plants in your pond, it will quickly become cluttered.
These cute little ponds make hot summer days seem cooler, reflect fall's colorful leaves and attract wildlife, such as birds, dragonflies and frogs.  A small water garden you can construct yourself permits a close-up view of intriguing aquatic plants and fish if you include them.
An ideal place for your pond is a spot that offers at least 4 hours of sun each day. Morning sun is kinder to water plants than late-day sun.
Like a natural pond, try to maintain a delicate balance of plants, snails, tadpoles, and fish rather than on pumps and filters to keep the water fresh. It includes oxygenating grasses (which add oxygen to the water) and floating plants such as water hyacinths (which provide hiding space among their roots for pond creatures). This menagerie includes tadpoles and goldfish.
