How do you create a backyard pond?

I would like to build a backyard pond.

First, research your local-building/zoning-codes, specifically set-back requirements & water-rights. Take measurements & draw up a plan. You want to circulate water to reduce algae, insect larva, & freezing, and aerate water if you plan to stock fish. Excavate your hole & seal it with a plastic-liner or concrete. Decorate or plant around your pond. You might require fencing around it.

You need to get a permit. The city can tell you if you need a fence around the pond to prevent drownings.
