Choosing a Location
I WANT TO PUT A POND KIT ON MY DECK. HOW HEAVY WILL IT BE WHEN IT'S FULL?
MY POND WILL BE IN A FULL SUN LOCATION, WILL IT GET TOO WARM?
One solution is to ensure that your pond has plenty of plants, as these shade the water and allow the fish to stay out of the direct sun. There are also many ways to add some kind of sun shade to your pond area. The photo shows a patio umbrella used to shade part of the pond.
