Winterizing a water feature?

Recommended Posts

I installed a little prefabed pond this summer. I did not get around to adding fish or plants this year so I don't have anything living in it that I need to keep alive over the winter. What should I do as far as winter preparation?


Should I drain the pond and cover it with a tarp to keep the snow out? We are in a chilly climate and loads of snow and ice are in store for the next few months. If I leave the water in the pond won't it crack the shell?
