Pond installation and waterfall for kids in Chicago suburbs

1 Day

We re-worked an old pond for the kids at a local school here in Chicago-land. It is now a place where they can interact and see new things daily.The water-garden will evolve and change with the seasons... The pond supplies and stone were donated and our labor charge discounted for the school
This is what they had for years.. A dysfunctional pond with lack of filtration. Basically an eyesore and mosquito breeding ground
We ripped out the old and placed a waterfall and skimmer to start the rebuilding process
Re-digging and shaping the pond. Adding a 25' stream
The kids watched and asked questions all day
The pond is lined and we are rocking
The pond is now filling..
The kids are exploring the stream
Getting their hands wet
Finished upper falls
