(Utilize the mortar to on the off chance that you feel the stones are not heavy enough to be stable). Add a few bushes around the edges as well.
* You can create a cobblestone beach edging with gravel and cobbles.
* Make it look as natural as conceivable and keep a lot of plants to add on later, when the water is in.
Top it off!

* Add dechlorinator to the pond to evacuate any chlorine or chloramines.
* Put in the gravel and plant the root plants into the gravel or with some dirt despite everything attached into the gravel. Plants ought to be added immediately after the pond is ready. Make sure you plant enough of Anacharis, as this plant assists with battling the algae and resembles a natural filter. Put in water lilies as they help to shade the fish.
