4 There are many other, more reasonable ways to create a frame and means for that. Experts, for example, you need to strikedethe the bottom and sides of the reservoir from a mixture of concrete not less than 400 marks (part 1), coarse sand (2 parts) and gravel (3 parts).
5 to begin to fill the bottom. After it cured, proceed to the construction of the walls, which should be the thickness 12-14 cm, and bottom. They may also have steps. To concrete wall need in a wooden formwork or flexible plywood (for pond with curved banks).
6 after About 2 weeks you need to wash the pond, leaving water in it for 1-2 days. Then put it in soil, sand, plant aquatic plants eventually fill with water and sarilaya.
