    Ann, one thing you have to be prepared for w/Hometalk and that is when you post pics just get ready for a barage of questions. Here's Mine: did you use a liner or what for the pond?? I would think you need to fill it fairly often due to evaporation ??? I see you have a water feature & I know that'll keep the water circulated so the skeeters don't take up refuge -anything else I need to know?? I have grand illusions of this water-fall Koi pond one day but until then this sure looks do-able. Thanks for sharing - you did a fantastic job!!!

    thx so much this is the stuff we all like to talk about so I enjoy it and the feedback has been helpful to me---this pond was another one of my design on a dime projects--got free heavy duty plastic sheeting at a yard sale and made many layers of it (6 maybe) dug a hole the shape I liked that would fit the rocks I got from my son's GA property --laid down the plastic dumped in the smaller pebbles and rocks and then lined the edge with the big rocks from GA--bought the little water feature fountain at Lowes about $50--we had electric out there already plugged it in buried the cords under rocks and that's it---it will turn yellow sometimes then we put chlorine from the pool in it-if the whole thing fails for some reason--I'm not into it for that much money
