Now This is Outdoor Living!

This may not be the largest or most extravagant water feature I have ever designed and built but it is my favorite. Every aspect of this project revolved around the kids. The parents wanted something the kids would interact with and be able to explore and learn from. they traded T.V and video games for feeding koi fish and catching frogs! we built a beach entrance that sloped all the way into the deep end (2 feet at its deepest) we built two designated feeding stones, and gave each child their own sitting rock. this is what its all about, this is the lifestyle! 11x16 backyard koi pond with 25 foot stream = your kids having a life time of memories and life experiences in their own back yard, gifted to them by you = PRICELESS!

    Absolutely wonderful! I'd give anything for something like it! This may sound dumb, but where does the water come from? Did you dig a spring?

    Now this is awesome, it seems that the kids are having too much fun. They are also participating in the work that's going on for beautifying the garden space and making your outdoor space an envy for your neighbors. Keep up the good work.
