Weekend of May 28th: Backyard Pond

A garden pond attracts birds, frogs, butterflies, and crickets (no mosquitoes, though, thanks to the moving water). It'll also attract, well, you and your family, too. In How to Create a Backyard Pond, This Old House senior technical editor Mark Powers shows you how to make the one you see here. All you need is a shovel and a few materials, and before you know it, you'll have a relaxing outdoor retreat.
