    Thanks
    we started working on the rear wall of the bog, I raised the wall about 6" then built a mound behind it that moves out into the yard about 2 foot. I installed some pots into the mound and made it uneven so it kind of resembles a mountain side. I plan to build a few boulders to put there and with the plants it should make for a nice background
    I'll get some pics once we get a little more done to it
    Also I guess I can chalk it up to inexperience but I had a lot of exposed liner at the top edges of the pond
    I decided to buy some of the rock on a roll and work it into the areas, I think it is working out well, just have to wait for the part under the water to blend with the rest of the liner so it looks more natural

    Looking good AJ!

    You can sit on the deck and admire the result of all that hard work.

    that was the goal from the beginning, my wife sits out on the parch every day at her own little oasis
    I don't have a picture of it but I have a dogwood tree planted in the middle of the lower deck between the corner of the porch and the bog
    you can just see the trunk of it in one of the pictures

    I haven't posted in a good while but I have been lurking :)
    just wanted to post a few updated shots of the pond, we removed the 4X4 and jasmin from the island as we felt it was detracting from the maple. I made a few changes to the overflow from the bog and we removed most of the iris and added some other plants. we removed the elephant ears that were spreading with runners like crazy and replaced it with the 1, it seems to just make new ones off it's base, no runners
    next season we are going to make a waterfall with a small spring flowing back into the pond where the hyacinth is now by the bog

    Looks good AJ, I love the island and also the metal lizard you have in the 2nd picture.
