Got the wall ALLLLLLLLLLLLL DONE.......... AND SO AM IIIIIIIIIIIIIII ALL ONE MAN BOULDERS BUT DAMN IT WORE ME OUT... PHOTOS TOMOROWI'm a fool I'm planning on building a 6 foot tall x 12 foot stone wall this weekend . it never ends
I use osmocote, toss 1/4 cup under the litter whenever I groom them ie fall or spring. This time it will be spring. Time release. It has never caused a algae bloom. Time release works great. I have tabs, quit using them, too much work to get into the pond and stick tabs in.If regular time-release stuff works just as well, that's something I can get locally.
When they start growing, and in your area may grow year round, you will never see the pot again.Definitely didn't plan room for 5 lily pots and the oil pans kind of spoil the view,
But won't the fertilizer cause an algae bloom?

I drilled holes in the edges of the oil pans, put floating rope in a triangle type layout so I can snag the pots with my tool and drag to the edge.
I made a really neat shelf using a thin slab of granite and putting bricks under it. I want to make more, but for now I'm using cement blocks to raise my lily pots.
Have seen those at the local logging supply store, but the 24" ones are like a foot tall. If I raised it, would just be like 3". Could cut a band off of some leftover pipe and plastic weld it. Probably won't, though, because the other half of me wishes it were actually lower so I'd have more space between the top of the vault and the bottom of whatever firepit goes over it. I want to keep the top of the fire pit below the top of the rocks in front of it. May not be possible, though.They sell an extension coupling for the culvert pipe you can use that to lift the pump vault along with a short piece of pipe .
I remember seeing that, but now I can't remember why...I also wrapped the culvert pipe with rubbe3r and put zip ties together and just pulled them tight in the lower ribs of the culvert.
Good idea!Take a tree limb hollow out a channel on the under side and slip the wires for the pump vault in that they will be up out of the water and safe from little ones
Another good idea. Definitely want to protect that edge a little more.as to the liner exposed in peastone why not get some clear epoxy and make a hollow tube one that has the pea stone imbedded in it
Thanks, sir. I can see now that the edging is the last mile that really brings it all together. I'd gotten used to the 5' of extra flopping around, but as I hide more and more of it, I can't stand looking at what's left.Your efforts are TRUELY showing you have made your self a unique paradise in a city lot.
Will experiment with it over time. There is so little surface litter most of the year right now—and not much aquatic life currently depending on the oxygen—that I think I can just shut it off for the fall while leaves are falling and that'll mostly do the trick.you could add those low volt mini pumps to push around or through the air
