At the end of the day, everyone has a different reason they want a new pond so the best way to think about why you want one is to imagine your why. Once you finish reading this, close your eyes and imagine you’re next to your new pond and think of a few answers to these questions:
- What do you see? Are there fish in the water or is it a pondless feature and it’s only a long stream?
- Think about what you’re hearing. Are you envisioning a bubbling brook or water clashing on the rocks?
- Is there a breeze and you can feel that there is a small body of water next to you? Who is standing next to you feeling this as well?
All your senses play a part in enjoying a pond so be sure to think of the whole picture!
