5. And now, just relax
Only one final little job to do and you’ll have the perfect relaxing spot in your garden. Saw the upper outside edge off the tyre, so you create a kind of shell. Dig a hole in the ground that it fits snugly into when lying flat, but make sure that some of the edge of the tyre is above ground level. Put some sturdy, folded-up, waterproof sheet in the hole and sit the tyre on top. Then, cover it with more of the waterproof sheet, so it reaches well over the edges and place the previously sawn-off upper edge inside the base of the tyre to hold the sheet in place. Bury the sheet edges with soil and strengthen it by perhaps adding some large decorative stones around the outside to secure it in place. Now just fill it with water, add your favourite water plants, and there you have it, your very own decorative pond!!
