Pond view farm is a great natural source of water for fishing, recreation and pets. The ideal place to build a farm pond is in a low-lying area to receive water from rain runoff or a power source of water such as a stream or spring. Clay is the best soil to contain water. Sand or gravel becomes the pond to a meadow! Study the area well and measure precipitation. Also, be sure to check zoning and code laws in the area to make sure it is allowed to dig a pond on the ground. You may need to apply for a permit.

Check with the zoning and code the board of your county to achieve a permit if needed. Choose a location of pond view farm in a low-lying area that receives lots of rain, or is near a stream or spring. Make sure the soil is clay. Collect a handful of wet soil in a ball. If it stays in a ball shape – the soil is most likely mud. Rent a bulldozer from a rental, or hire a professional to enter and clear the soil.
Clear all vegetation, rocks and stumps from the area. Dig a hole to the desired depth of the pond. Ideally, you want about 10 meters from the shoreline above the water surface. The beach is the beach area before you reach the water. This can be filled with gravel or smooth rocks for landscape architecture. Treat the bottom of the pond farm with betonies clay as needed. This is only if your soil does not naturally clay. Allow the pond to fill naturally. Enjoy.
