I must tell you, building a pond is a great experience that you will love for years and years, and since it is a creative endeavor, you really can put your own signature on it. This e-book will give you the steps to take as you plan, and many pointers along the way. Use your imagination and try different things to make it just the way you want it and you’ll end up with a project you’ll be proud of and a wonderful pond to boot!

For the first three years of it’s existence, my wife and I changed and redid areas around the pond many times trying for that certain final “LOOK”. Once you’re there, you’ll find you’re probably not, and that is one of the joys of the pond experience. It’s sort of like a work of art that is never quite finished.

If you’re a nature lover, and you most likely are if you’re considering a pond, then this is where what I call the “pond bonus” comes in. Water plants in the pond itself, perennials and annual flowers around the perimeter, butterflies, Hummingbirds, frogs, and spring peepers make the whole pond area a nature wonderland!

On a personal note, since this is my initial venture into writing, I would ask you to bear with me. I’ll try my best to keep instructions and suggestions practical and leave out a lot of side comments and quips that won’t add anything to your pond building experience. I’ll tell you the way I’ve done it, the things that have worked and those that haven’t and hopefully by the end of this e-book you will find, as I did, that overall it was more fun than work.

Finally, I hope you enjoy the book, and that when your project is finished, you’ll send me some pictures and comments on your experience. If we’re able to gain enough interest and receive enough feedback, then I would hope in the future I’ll be able to put out a second edition of “How to Build a Beautiful Backyard Pond” featuring pictures and stories of your experiences.
