    Newbie here. We just bought a house and it came with this pond. Our plans are to try and install a waterfall or two as well as to get it cleaner looking. Any suggestions are welcome as this is all new.

    Welcome! is that an upper and lower pond or is that upper area a "bog" area do you know? It looks like the upper is a bog that then maybe flows into the lower pond.

    We haven't moved into the house yet so I don't know what the wooden frame is for, I presume they used it to hang plants from but not sure. I don't think there is a separate bog side, i think its all one pond. When we looked to buy the house it was raining a bit hard so we didn't really inspect the backyard area.

    Thank you for all the welcomes. The old owners took the pump and the Koi when they moved out. What we have left is a hole in the ground that is lined and appears to be leaking. I will post pictures when I get home.
