To develop the look of a natural pond you can:
- Go with the native vegetation that thrives in your area.
- Repeat mass groupings using one or two kinds of plants, especially grasses and reeds.
- Surround your pond with trees and shrubs that naturally occur near water, like alders, river birches, dogwoods and willows.
- Plant vigorous natives in the shallow margins, and make sure the center of the pool is more than eighteen inches deep, so natives won't over run the pond.
