I am looking for any information on making a small pond in a future flower bed, I just want a focal point in it. I have an 8x12 foot area to use and have included pictures. My main question is, Does it have to have a pump or can you forgo it? Also, would love fish and plants but not sure if that is possible. Please overlook all the work(weeding, etc.) that needs to be done lol I'm working on it. Thanks for any of your help.
