    few more...i want to commend you all on your clean neat ponds, i went ton a pond tour this weekend and never say so many poorly maintained ponds...i would be embarrased to put my pond on the tour if it looked like that!! they must not read much about balance, plants/fish ratioo, etc...about 3 out of 10 looked cared for...there was even one with NO rocks...just liner, you could see pipes in the water, even, and a couple of Koi and a bass!! nasty....
    anyway....i enjoy seeing all of your pix, thanks for indulging me...and truly, these pix are some of the most beautiful i have ever seen...ok, gotta go feed the fish and go to bed...little devils like to eat at night!!

    Buttercup, in your second photo near the bottom left, the plants with the saucer shaped leaves are those Nasturtiums?

    I too would like to reiterate how beautiful all the ponds are, I could sit and browse through the pictures all day looking for ideas.

    no, not Nasturtiums, it is Penny Wart...most seems to float, but mine is standing straight up, probably where i have it planted...it is sending out shoots..i hear it is agressive and i will need to keep a good eye on it so it doesn't take over....
    have you ever put impatients in your pond?? i heard somewhere, maybe here, that is does well in the water...just curious...

    What gorgeous ponds. I love looking at other peoples ponds and getting ideas. The ponds do look very clean. It took alot of hard work for me, but getting the BW under control, paid off with a nice clean pond. Hope it don't come back next year.

    I am a newbie, but love looking at everyones work and getting the helpful hints.

    This is the pond in progress.

    Just replaced the liner in May and dug the "pit" in the deepend, moved the whole thing out 2 feet on the sides and one foot on the skimmer end.

    Some plants and such, but still working on my little "falls"

    No rocks in the bottom of the 2nd and 3rd section, I want BIG ones and we just can not do it this year!


    The little falls goes into a shallow pool, then the deeper pool has a fountain, and then the "pit" has a spitter.

    The water lilies are just now spreading to cover about half of the "middle" section.

    I have mini cat tails, and some other stuff in there, but it is slow going.

    My 5 big goldfish from last year and some small gold fish from this year are doing well, but I have had an attack of string algae that I will work on this weekend..






    My water was gin clear until the string algae showed up.. what a mess!

    Everyone has beautiful ponds!

    I love to work in the pond, it is my biggest stress reducer.

    Pond in progress....

    I hope this works....

    Here is one of two ponds going in our backyard. I have a red-eared slider who must have his own pond because he likes to eat the tails of my fish. He gets the unattractive prefab pond.

    The other pond will go down below the wall after the corn is done. My husband would not appreciate me taking it out yet although it is very tempting because I'm itching to start digging. I am hoping to put a water fall from the upper corner area down to the lower pond with a bridge to the seating area on the left.

    Does anyone know what size pump I should have for a pond approx. 8 x 7 x 3 deep with a 4-6 ft long waterfall? Right know the only pump I have is in the turtle pond.

    I love looking at all the other pic., they are very inspiring.

    All the ponds are beautiful. It is amazing how many different things we can do with water, rocks, and plants.

    Shirley,
    your plants are SO pretty...are those flowering plants impatients?? if so how do you plant them..in dirt, float?? what?? and that sweet little lacey flaoter, what is that?? imust have some of all of that!!!
    I have decided to create a watergarden in a pot or birdbath..maybe not this season, but for sure next..then we will have the flagstone patio and gazebo in and the area will be pretty much finished, then i want to create a watergarden that flows out over the edges of the container, and that small little delicate floater and minature water lilly's would be so pretty...another project on my LONG list!! we have been asked to be on the pond tour next year and we are so excited, but have alot of finishing up and tweaking to do but we have a year....

    Thanks for the compliments Buttercup,yes those white flowers are Impatiens,they are just stuck in between the rocks bare rooted,I always think white flowers look very pretty and tranquil by water,The lacy looking plant is called Azolla Filiculoides,more commonly known as Fairy Moss,its a great little floater plant,it spreads really quickly but is easily controlled,just scoop out what dont want.Parrots feather would be great for your project too as it will cascade over the edges.Thats great about the tour..if theres any thing else I can help with let me know

    Very Nice Buttercup. Yes I got your pm thank you, Hope you got my reply. I'm still working on plants in and out of pond. There is sooooo much space to cover tho it is taking much longer than I had hoped. It keeps me broke and out of trouble tho!

    New Pond - Still in Process

    Here's some pics of the pond that hubby & I are putting in at our house. Still need some more rocks & landscaping, but I'm waiting for the 95+ degree temps to cool off.
