Can you guess what it is? Well, what about making a mini pond?

It turns out that it’s not that hard to build one. It’s much easier than building an above ground pool for example.

A pond will dramatically change the look of your garden and make it much more lively and inviting.

  • Sand
  • Gravel
  • Water Pump ( Solar Powered )

Tools:

So let’s follow the instructions to create the best mini pond ever.

Get some tires – car or tractor, it doesn’t matter.

You must dig out the perfect sized hole for the tire. When finished with the digging, level the bottom ( you can use sand to make it even more smoother )

Repeat the same for all the tires that you would like to be part of the pond.

After all tires are properly cut, start covering them with water resistant material – thick nylon would be perfect.

It’s good to add a solar powered water pump to the pond to make it look more natural.

Plant some small flowers or succulents around the pond to blend it naturally in your garden.

You can also create your own mini pond design with some tires left in your backyard.

The best thing about making one is that it will be environmentally friendly and won’t cost a lot of money.

You can use materials that you already have in your garden, no need to buy anything, expect for a water filter and pump, but they are optional.
