Sink a stock tank in the ground and cover the edges with large flat rocks for a natural look.

Thumbs up I have a big poly stock tank (the light blue kind) that is no longer in use and I think would make a perfect "pond." Did you plumb a drain into yours? Do you have an aeration pump? Like you, the location on the farm that I am thinking of is under a tree. Has keeping it clean been an issue? Thank you for the idea and article!

I went for simply. No drain. That is why I have to pump it dry when I want to clean it. Just let the water pump out of the pond. Of course it leaves the muck and mess at the bottom. Yes, leaves fall in there and need to be scooped.
