Water features should be located in an area that receives a minimum of six hours of sunlight per day. This will allow you to plant many varieties of water plants.
If possible, place your pond away from trees and shrubs to prevent unwanted leaves from clogging any filtration system you are using. You will want your new pond to be visible from your most used outdoor space and/or from within your home.
Once you're ready to add water plants, follow our guide for care and planting.
