Sample text:

A backyard fish pond will augment the beauty of your garden, there is no question about that. A backyard fish pond will add a focal point to a scruffy garden and will make a beautiful backyard or garden even more interesting. There is something happy about the gurgling and splashing of fresh water.

However, in spite of the massive upside of having a backyard fish pond, there is also the question of maintenance. This is not an arduous task, but it is on-going and does need to be carried out on a regular basis.

Everybody loves a backyard fish pond. If you already have one, you can bear witness to the fact that guests, friends and family like to spend time sitting around the edge of your pond watching the fish go about their lazy lifestyles and listening to the sound or running and splashing water. It seems to fascinate humans and it is therapeutic.

If you do not already have a pond, but want one, the first step is to choose where to locate it. A few suggestions here:

1] do not put it at a low point in the garden or it might flood when it rains and your fish could swim away.

2] try not to place it under a tree or you will spend the rest of your life pulling foliage out of the water

3] do try to put your backyard fish pond where it will be at least in partial shade at midday

Once you have the best site, you have to think about size and shape. The most popular shapes are: round, square, oval and kidney shaped. The depth of the water is also significant if you live in an area that is subject to freezing. Thirty to forty-five inches is enough in most instances, but it would be worth asking neighbours or the local pet shop for guidance.
