Angi warns that backyard ponds pose a risk to children, so if you have any of your own, you should probably get rid of the one you have in your garden. Getting rid of an established pond may be a laborious and time-consuming process. Compared to ponds coated with a hard plastic preformed liner, ponds lined with a liner similar to a tarp are much simpler to dig out of the ground. It’s easy to turn removing a backyard pond into a weekend effort if you let it. You could wish to ask some friends or neighbours for assistance with the job so that it can be completed more quickly and with less effort.
