Probably those who have a lake or pond on their own land plot can be safely called lucky. But, as a rule, not everyone is so lucky. And if you are the one who is unlucky, this is fixable. You can build a small pond or lake with your own hands.
This venture is still quite costly and requires compliance with all conditions. Let’s digress a little and talk about biology. A natural body of water is able to cleanse itself thanks to its fauna and microfauna. Due to rain and groundwater, it fills itself. A natural balance is maintained in a natural reservoir. If we decide to build an artificial reservoir, then we must bring it all to mind, so that our artificial reservoir functions as well as a natural one..
First you need to find out if it is possible to build a reservoir on your site. This is due to the fact that it is forbidden to erect such structures near buildings. In connection with these, your site should have a large area. The surface of the water should not be exposed to sunlight for more than 5 hours a day. If this does not happen, then your reservoir will bloom. To do this, you will also have to create an artificial shadow..
Don’t dig a pond under the trees, as fallen leaves from the trees will also pollute your pond. The depth of the pond should be 1.5 meters, but not less, otherwise the pond will freeze through completely in winter.
Regardless of the purpose, shape and size of the reservoir, its implementation involves several stages: earthwork and design work, geodetic, finishing and waterproofing.
It is necessary to determine the location of the pond, or rather, where it can be located. If the level of the waters flowing under the pond is not deep, then it is impossible to dig the pond. Because the soil can settle. And also, if in the area where you are going to build an artificial pond, there are gas and sewer pipes. So, if you have a desire to have your own pond on your site, then first you need to take into account all of the above factors. And it is better if you contact special companies that provide this kind of services..
If you are interested, then you can professionally engage in the construction of reservoirs. This market is not yet saturated with competitors, and earnings can reach high levels.
