This is a very adorable piece to add surrounding some frogs.

A pond with an interesting statue in the middle is a unique outdoor pond idea. This idea could be done in two different ways when it comes to this moon shape. Either by making an oval-shaped hole to then fill with water, or making a normal pond with a moon statue above it. Adding some rocks and flowers around even makes it feel more magical and would go well with some of the other ponds mentioned in this guide.

For some players who still haven’t decided on a home, you can build yourself a luxurious pool house. Not only would you have a nice house but you can walk outside and take a dip in the pool. You can use concrete and grass to create a sleek modern look for the house, and add some seating and changing rooms to the pool outside. You could even add an outside bar, an outdoor kitchen, and a rooftop deck.

There are many designs to be used to make swimming pools, but one like this seems the most realistic. Not only can you add some floating sitting to your pool, but a latter leading in as well. Some glass around gives it an even fancier look and if you already have a house built, you can easily add one of these into the build.
