Sun or Shade?
We are looking into adding a pond area into our backyard. I'm not really interested in having fish in it as we live in a very rural area and I truly believe I'd spend more time fighting off raccoons & birds instead of enjoying the fish.
I do have a few questions that I can't seem to find answers to elsewhere.
1. Would I still need a bottom filter if I do not want to add fish?
2. I can't seem to decided if I want it above ground or below. I would like something that fits into our surroundings. Does anyone have raised ponds in a rural setting they wouldn't mind sharing? Can I create this look with rocks alone?
3. The area I'm thinking of putting it in is in mostly shade, is shade or sun better for pond placement?
4. I also find some websites that say to use carpet underneath the liner & some say to use sand, what is a better option?
Thanks so Much!
