Paver Method for Sinking Small Round Preformed Ponds in Ground

Round preformed fiberglass ponds are made to be buried in the ground. Sinking looks natural, but makes them harder to clean. Adding landscape blocks around the edges makes cleaning easy.

Ah, I see another advantage.

During a big rain event water would be less likely to enter your pond as it is elevated.
Great idea! And it looked very 'finished' - very well thought out. Perfect.

I really like this, Rita.
Somewhere down the line, I will probably do it!

But FIRST I have to catch up with the flowers and edible plants!

I really like this, Not all ponds need to look natural your pond has a more formal look. Very pretty.
Life is Great! Holly

And I like the practical part about having the rim above ground level.
