A man-made, natural pond?

By definition a "Natural Pond" is a small body of water that occurs naturally. So a man-made natural pond is really a contradiction that can only be partially correct, either it's man-made or it's natural. So I am using the term as more of a loose description rather than a definition.

So what I mean by a "Natural Pond" is a pond that closely resembles that which occurs naturally. We will let nature handle everything that it can, and only intervene when necessary. Once the pond has fully cycled and is running as expected, there is very little we need to do, except reap the benefits.

So what is this natural pond and how does it work?

Here is a brief description. A more detailed page will be written on the step-by-step blog.
