A friend dug the pond in the backyard, then lined it with plastic, the heavy stuff from building supply store. Then she put down sand in the bottom, and laid chicken wire on that. She put in enough pea gravel to fill in the spaces between the wire and the sand, and used a type of concrete premix that is rubberized so it would be flexible without cracking in the spring when the ground heaves. All they used was a submersible pump and filter, and a heater for a livestock water trough when the weather got cold.
