People also ask, are ponds man made or natural?
The term natural pond can be defined on severallevels. On a very basic level, a natural pond is one thatexists in nature – one that is notman-made. That is certainly a very good description,but natural ponds can also be man-made, inwhich case they exist without the use of pumps, filters orchemicals.
Likewise, how ponds are formed? Ponds form when water begins to fill in adepression in the ground. Early plants or pioneers start growing onthe bottom of the pond. Eventually plants called emergentsstart to grow on the edge of the pond. As the plantsdecompose, layers of soil build up and the pond becomesshallower and shallower.
Accordingly, what is a manmade pond?
Man made ponds generally refer to bodies of waterthat are built and/or are maintained by humans rather than MotherNature.
