Building a Backyard Pond!

Hubby and I took on the task of building a backyard pond this summer! Please remember we are not professionals.....just avid DIYer's!! There are a lot more photos and descriptions at
Laid out our shape and size.
Started digging!
Digging done!
Added sand for cushion between rock soil and liner.
Added newspaper for an extra layer of cushion.
Placed the liner and filled with water stretching and smoothing into place.
Added landscape rocks!
Built landscape rocks up and around a pre-fab water fall feature.
Built a stone wall around the pond to keep landscaping and mulch from washing away.
Added a fountain!
Finished pond--for now! Plan to add water plants!
