I see all manner of ponds in built landscapes, and sadly, many are high-maintenance and destined for failure.  Short of a pond brimming with Koi, the most successful ponds are constructed as follows:  no drainage spout; no pump; no aeration; 30 or so inches deep (in the South); and planted liberally with water lilies…and some goldfish (which do not need to be fed by us…the inevitable overfeeding is a problem).
