If you have a yard or garden, and wish to add a decorative pond, one of the first things you must consider is where to place it.
Location is a huge factor in the success of an outdoor pond and depending on where you decide to place it can influence its ecology in different ways.
Choosing the correct location can make the act of keeping a pond a much easier and more enjoyable experience.
However, different setups may have different requirements, so the first thing to consider is what type of pond you wish to keep.
The location can limit what you may be able to put in your pond. Factors such as pond size, light intensity, wind/inclement weather and depth can all decide what you can keep in your pond, and how much maintenance you will have to perform.
