The pond as a natural ecosystem in our jungle resort

 

Recently, I read an extract of the book Happy Valley. The idea to have a natural pond gets its inspiration from that passage.

In the book, the author describes how he and a friend painstakingly built a natural pond as a complete ecosystem, how the water is re-cycled, what kinds of plants they grew.. Serious research is needed to figure how best to do this. Part of the problem would be to figure out solutions of just digging out a pond does not give us the water that we need. If there is a stream that runs through the wilderness vacation resort, that could take care of it. if not, whether just digging a pond would yield water is something that depends on the lay of the land.
