You have a beautiful pond.
Love your pond! Did you mean feet instead of inches in the overview description of your pond?
It was redone for the third time last year (we did the first two, then hire a contractor for the last renovation). it didn't really change much in look, it just got larger!
The waterfall used to be in the right corner, facing the skimmer, I wish the contractor had left it there, cause the way he built it, wasn't working! The water wasn't circulating as well as it did before, going from the fall spill in the middle of the pond, straight to the skimmer and back into the waterfall ....so we remodel the step down from the upper section, opening an additional spill on the left corner, forcing some of the water from the waterfall to move through the plants before spilling onto the main pond.
To circulate the water on the right side of the waterfalls, we put the return hose from the UV light and we added a couple of air-stones..
oops, thank you for catching that!
I can’t believe a contractor would put the falls and skimmer so close together. I’d ask him to do it again, the correct way if I were you.
But the itself pond is pretty! Glad you did a showcase! I am going to add some pictures to mine one of these days..l thanks for the inspiration!
Not the only dumb thing he did either, that's why we're doing the new pond on our own!
As much as I love Eco-ponds, we will be building another Hybrid, it just works out better for us, and our busy lifestyle !
And thank you!
I decided to post about my pond, cause I needed something to post about! lol I like this Forum and I hate when it slows down!
What did you find inspiring?
Beautiful you can tell a lot of love goes into your pond !!!
A lot of love, and very little maintenance!
Looks very nice!
What a lovely pond ! I like that it's close to your home and the beautiful plantings around it
Thank you guys!
I winterize and save most of my plants!
People think I'm crazy cause all the work involved (lots of plant around the house and deck) I think it's worth it, I love replanting my own every Spring
Very nice looking pond, thanks for sharing. It's cool that you can look and enjoy it as you walk to and from the house.
Very nice pond ,I like the way that attached to the house , can learn many thing..
I finally figured out how to upload videos! This is not the video I wanted but towards the second half I can see the fish up close so I can still get an idea on their size...I'll make a better video in Spring
is there a way to view in full screen or this is it for videos made with a phone?
Congrats on finally getting a vid to upload. Much better than still pics. Nice!
Did you take it from a cell hold the cell sideways so you can get a full pic .That could be why youtube had a problem with it .I have seen others say that about cell phone uploads
