30 Small Garden Pond Ideas to Spruce Up Your Yard

Add a pond to your garden and as well as enhancing your outdoor space it will introduce a favoured spot for calm moments and quiet contemplation.

If you love the idea of creating a sensory garden a pond is a must as it’s the best place to immerse yourself in nature.

The style of pond you choose will generally be led by the design of the rest of your garden.

If you lean towards sleek and contemporary, a modern reflection pool, often accompanied by a water blade or rill, will work well.

If informal gardens are more your thing a natural pond will sit in the space well. For courtyard gardens something smaller like a freestanding stone or concrete basin is a good choice.

Whatever style you opt for, pond margins always look good fringed with lush and leafy planting and this helps to create a rich habitat for wildlife too.

The denser the planting is the more wildlife friendly the pond will be. Ponds with sloping sides allow access for small creatures, while plants attract bees, butterflies and dragonflies.
