    I'm adding a Koi pond to my backyard as I type this! Needless to say, at almost 70, I'm not doing the work, but I did the design, and my friend, who is a plumber and jack of all trades is doing the work. I purchased all my materials from Amazon and Walmart. The plants will be coming from Amazon and Ebay. Will add the Koi later, after the pond is established. I'm lucky to be living in the mountains of Va., so don't have to buy any rocks, and fallen trees are free, too. Other than the materials (liner, pump, etc), the only other thing I had to buy was sand to line the hole the liner will sit in. I can't wait until it's finished. The only other thing I need now is a net to keep out all the leaves and acorns that will be falling soon.
