To make a small pool of tires, you do not need special skills and hard to find materials. All you need is one big tire from the car (preferably from the tractor), half a bag of cement, a suitable area for the pool and, of course, your desire.
To get started, you have to prepare a tire. It will be necessary to cut one side from her and leave the rim – side. It is most convenient to cut the tire with a sharp knife. To make it easier to cut the rubber, moisten the knife and the tire itself with water. Try not to use a grinder in this matter, since during cutting the rubber will be sprayed with very small crumbs, which are then very difficult to wash off.
At the site selected for the pool, you should dig a pit according to the diameter of the tire. If you want to make a concrete approach around the pond, then you will have to do a little more pit. The bottom needs to be concreted – pour a few buckets of cement and lower the tire into the pit. In principle, your pool is ready as soon as the cement dries (If there is no cement, then you can simply pour sand at the bottom of the pit, flatten it and cover it with foil). When the cement hardens, do not rush to immediately pour water into the pool, but first paint it inside with some bright color.
You should also ennoble the nearby territory. Pond decoration is a very interesting and fascinating activity. Small sculptures that can also be cut from old tires or wood will look spectacular next to the pond. You can also put next to the pool boulders of various sizes, small rounded stones. Do not forget to plant your favorite flowers near the pool. Show originality and make a multi-tiered flower bed. Try to create an environment that is as close as possible to real nature: you can cut water lilies from the foam and lower them into your pond, then make a frog out of a plastic bottle and “put” it on a water lily.
Near your little pool, you can install a gazebo and barbecue. Such a pond will be a great place to relax and your pride in friends.
