This pond building design idea was sent to us by Becky Butz-Butler who did a masterful job of converting a simple canoe into a great looking small pond.

Arranged to blend in with their deck and backyard, this pond appears to be “docked” to the deck with tie down ropes and a simple marine motif. The ample use of plants helps to keep the pond water in better condition and a small submersible filter can be added to keep the water cleaner as well.

This just goes to show that with a little bit of creativity, you can create a beautiful small pond out of just about anything and with proper accents, they can be blended into an existing backyard or deck area very nicely.
