    Say per month, how many folks other than yourself see / visit your pond? An estimate will do. Btw, just curious.

    On average between 5-7. A bit higher during the summer when we BBQ. Last month I hit 40, but we had a graduation party at the house. :)

    Mine doesn't see many visitors in fact some of my neighbors don't even realize we have a pond. I suppose since it's in a fenced in back yard and then also inside a smaller picket fence it's not very visible except to anyone in my back yard and the neighbor on one side as it is along the fence line that we share.

    I actually kinda like it that way. I don't want people messing around the pond when I'm not home. We recently had a 13 month old child in a neighboring community die in their neighbors pond. So sad.....

    One or two maybe.

    My current house doesn't have a back door, so if we're entertaining, it's not easy to just pop into the backyard. We have to go out the front door, open the gate, and then go into the backyard. So, even when we have a lot of people over, it's fairly rare that they come out to see the pond.

    I'm in the process of buying a new house, and this house is much better for entertaining, and has a deck overlooking where I'll be digging the new pond, so I expect a lot more people to see my pond after I move!

    That is indeed very sad.

    Unless you're out in the middle of nowhere, a fence should be a priority if you have a pond.

    Yes, I agree. I couldn't even imagine having a pond in an area that isn't fenced in. I tend to worry about stuff and I know it would be on my mind all the time if it wasn't fenced in.

    Depending on when we finally get everything finished we can expect a pond visit from the club members but at the moment we on average see three to four people a week

    Today our neighbors brought their young grandson over to see it........so three today, but ordinarily very few, unless we have family over . We have a 6 foot fence around our property, for our dogs.....and we like our privacy :)

    Monthly.... maybe 5 tops. It's in a rather private, fenced yard. But I really do like to entertain, and especially love sharing the enjoyment of the pond with friends. OH! But I shared the link to view my pond cam with about 6 friends, so they can technically see it whenever they want.

    Mainly just us, but our neighbors do stand at the fence a couple times a day to enjoy the pond.

    Guessing 1 or so a month if we are not entertaining. That's fine with me nothing like sitting on the back porch and listening to running water and nature.
