    Wow

    OMG, thats one big Koi!!! ours are about 3-4" long, we got little ones because of the price, and to not overfill the pond, becasue we weren't sure how many big ones it would take, and if they grow to fit the size of the pond (yours will end up weighing 200 lbs!!! we wanted to get them small enough to grow to the right size...here is a pix of "herbie" eating at night with the pond lights on him

    Lovely water garden

    Wow, that is really taking shape. Are those Agapanthas (Spelled wrong)
    in the pots on the side. They are one of my favorites. I can grow them here at almost 5000 ft. elevation, but I tuck them in with boulders to keep them warmer in the winter. I love their blooms, they will be beautiful around your pond area. Do you have fish in your pond? Enjoy!! Pam

    Well to tell you the truth I don't know anything about plants, ponds, rocks, or pond fish. I do know about fish in fish tanks. This entire project happen because I took out all of the wood border planters that were infested with bugs and falling apart. I had the prefab waterfall (came with the house when we bought it) and my wife liked it.... I thought it was out of place.... so I decided to try to bled man made with the nature look. Do I have fish? No. I didn't plan to, because we have two fish tanks and I can just imagine what the up keep would be with fish in that small of an area. Mostly I did it for the look and sound of the water. I have been working on this project for about 2 month and have found myself becoming addicted to this hobbies. Thank You for your nice comments.

    Your pond is absolutely beautiful and natural. If I had that much room in my yard I think I would build a hockey rink. lol

    Threads with photos like this are my favorites. It's almost like reading a pond book.

    My wife's mom was the recipient of my last project. 3 small falls and a pond with moss rock and river rock.

    I was shocked to find 3 drain lines converging right under the location of the lowest fall. That was an interesting re-routing project. Had to go both directions around the pond and then merge them again.

    My pond is about 500 gal according to a pond guy that helped me co-install it. Personally, I think it might be a little more. The secret to my clear water is the UV Light, the Frog on the left side. I had pea green soup for water until I put that baby in. Presto, clear water. I still have blanket algae but at least I can see the bottom.

    The water in the background is the Fox River which is a chain of lakes in Northern Illinois.

    There are so many beautiful and varied examples already posted that I just had to post mine.


    This is a shot of my second pond. It's about 480 gals and about 26" deep. More images are at: http://ourpage.com/pond2

    Got my stream last week!
    The 1st 2 pics are from last year with just the pond, and the last 4 are the stream added. I am loving it!

    All the ponds are just beautiful! I love the driftwood in the pond, it looks so good! Do you buy it or is it just stuff from the yard? Does it have to be treated? I really like it, but didn't know if I could just pick it up off the ground and use it.

    Thank you Shirl I truly apprieciate the compliment.
    These pics were taken in June of 05 and the pond was put in the ground in July 03. I wish I had some pics from this year, it looks even better.

    Denise, The driftwood was just picked up in the woods and washed off with bleach and water.

    Here are a few more of it taken in October of '05. I love the New England fall colors.

    Let me see if I have this right... In this post, the warehouse is "those guys" but in the post about the lights, it's "we carry" and "call us".

    Doesn't take a detective to figure out that you work for the warehouse and are just here to pimp yourself out. At least be honest about it for crying out loud. Take pride in your company and the fact that you installed that pond.

    Talking My humble beginnings into wonderful world of ponds

    Here is my pond. I recently added a uv filter and a more powerful pump. The water is still a bit discolored but there is change in clarity.
