Bravo Telion what we can't see but I know is there behind that view of all your hard work are those mountains. and add the water fall to that view and your town is going to hit you up with a view TAX if you don't have that out there wait you will. and I won't want to pay your electric bill once you get the pond done your have the falls running as your retiring for the night and know you should shut the pump down but say ah a few more minutes of my million dollar view and it will run all night. great work great plan taking full advantage of a raw canvas with your property my hats off to you!!
Hahahaha you are SO right on So MANY LEVELS, that all I could do is laugh. Got a tear from how hard I laughed at the truth in this...Thank you!

Lol let's hope his taxes are still light years behind yours! Lol but for the falls a timer could always be a great idea. Or one of the on/off remotes like this

Agreed, and funny you should mention that timer/remote it's nice you can also schedule it to come on at certain times for certain durations of time. It's basically exactly what I have except I got the wifi one.

The pond and landscape looks more mature, it's sad that fall is here already. Wish summer was longer.

Lol i noticed that but what is family for if you cant have an occasional argument every now and then. Yes all except for the little ones 4"s or less those are Petco and Petsmart but yep all the big ones are from the one pond. That's a great idea I never was fond of the potential necessity of having to net a pond and that would be a great solution. I may have to do.something though heard tow somethings going at it or fighting near the pond last night and I don't have any type of lighting that I can switch on and off from inside yet.

Yes I would like to have more time in summer as well but it's a bittersweet because I'm getting worn out from all of the work I have put into it this year and it will give me something to be excited about next year to see everything nearly double in size as far as plants go

Um sissy, A thousand dollar tax bill on your property is something I thought was long gone. No view here and i'm 4 times that for a modest place . can't wait to see why the tax man feels my hand work on my pond. should benefit the tax base here . i'll enjoy that conversation. much like another lately

I hear yeah on the worn out part your just revers of the order I went I worked on the house first then the pond. but I do still have much to do in the house. now that the crazy heat is GONE I have been redoing my neighbors lawn as it took a hit from the planting of the hedge. And working on a 16 foot high Avery sorta speak around and over the pond. Not to mention getting around to trying to finish covering all the rubber edges
