A pond creates a beautiful and special atmosphere in the garden. If you have decided on a garden pond, you are faced with a large selection. There are swimming ponds, ponds with fish or rather without fish, natural ponds and many other species that can be supplemented and extended as desired. So before you start building a pond, you should consider what kind of pond you want. The right location is crucial for every pond. Excavation is usually the most difficult part of building a pond. A mini excavator can be used for support. However, it is also possible to carry out the excavation with a spade and a lot of force. The swamp zone is the first zone in the pond, which is at the very top. It is wide and shallow and has an approximate depth of 10 to 20 cm. The second zone is the shallow water zone, which is seamlessly connected to the swamp zone. You can also separate the zones by gravel and stones. In this zone there is a depth of 20 to 60 cm, the maximum width is usually 30 to 50 cm. The last level is the deep water zone, which starts at about 60 cm. If you have decided on a fish pond, the pond should have a total depth of 90 cm to 1.5 m.
