Are you looking for ways to upgrade the look of your garden? Why not try making this simple DIY mini pond from The Urban Nemophilist on Youtube. Built with the Walstad method, this mini pond has its system making it so easy to maintain. You can make this with whatever you have at home and put anything you like. Watch the video tutorial below to learn how to make this.
Fill the old tub with soil from the garden. Next, join the 2 pcs. of driftwood by tying them together. Place it in the center of the tub. After this, layer in the river gravel and spread it across nicely and evenly. Place the broken terracotta pot in the center, just across the driftwood. (This will act as the hide for the fish.) Put some more river gravel to secure the terracotta pot in place. Fill with water up to the brim.
Put some pebbles and rocks at the bottom of the pond. You can plant some water plants in the pond like Cryptocoryne wendtii or hydrocotyle tripartite. You can also attach some plants to the driftwood like pothos and put some floating plants like amazon frogbits or red root floaters. You can add the fish a few weeks later once the system had settled down.
