    I am looking to dig a duck pond for my 3 little ducks, 2 Rouens and 1 Crested Pekin. I also have a turkey that thinks he is a duck, it's my Pekins best friend. [​IMG] I sure would appreciate some inspiration from all of you who have your ponds, or wading pools set up for your ducks. I am looking for ideas on the best way to build this. Thanks!! Again, please post pics!!

    I love that pond that is elevated with the sand and landscaping bricks!

    I've always wondered how I would make a pond that looked "built in" without having to flip a pool over, or have a "container" just sitting on the ground.

    Beautiful! All you need now is some hardy duck proof landscaping plants around that and you are set!

    There is a natural spring that was leaking into the bird fenced in area there so we dug it up (because the ducks were making it a massive messy puddle anyhow) and put rocks around it.. all the water in there comes in from the underground spring so it's pretty much always clay colored looking [​IMG] Good thing is, is that the water is drinkable (to human standards had it tested twice) [​IMG] Not that i would [​IMG] lol

    it's 2 ft deep in the back, and very shallow in the front as you can see
