Natural Stone Backyard Pond Ideas

Design ideas for backyard garden ponds made from natural stone

Using randomly placed stone and plenty of plants, this backyard garden pond captures a very natural look and atmosphere. By using a variety of different sizes and shapes of rocks all of generally the same type and texture, you can create a framework for a very natural looking pond or water garden.

Most garden ponds and backyard water gardens tend to take on a very manufactured and unnatural appearance because of intentional consistency and shape of the stones used as well as the way they're generally perfectly stacked. While it's a matter of preference and some folks may prefer a more manufactured appearance, a more natural look like this pond is generally the ultimate goal.
