When Instructables user antoniraj noticed the amount of wildlife that actively visited his backyard, he decided to create a space just for them. Many of these animals would drink from a small water bowl that needed to be filled daily. To give them a watering hole that wouldn't require constant attention, he set out to build a small backyard fish pond. This would serve as both a source of nourishment for the animals, while also providing a quiet space to sit around and relax.

Antoniraj began by selecting the perfect location for the pond.
