A bad spot in the yard


I had a bare naked place right in the front yard that overlooks my porch and it was driving me crazy trying to keep grass growing. Finally I just gave up and did this instead. I like it much better and used materials I had on hand except for the lining. I also went to a bigger pump than the one I had. I'll use the smaller one for a new project in the back yard.
This hid an ugly spot in the yard that was in my direct line of vision as I sit on my porch....the sound of the water adds a wonderfully relaxing melody as it attracts birds and other wildlife for my pleasure.

    Robin F, your pond is adorable so I'm sure you will love it. Problem is once you start a pond it is hard to quit coming up with new ideas. Carol S, I agree with since I have a pond and I have always found a way to deal with any problem.
