    Well, we got the area cleaned up and after more than an hour trying to figure out the layout of this project, we have come to the sad conclusion that it just might not work out!

    We have a lot of room, but it's too chopped up due to the irregular shape of our deck, and the garage creating shade and so on ....we could move out away from the house, but that would defeat the purpose, or we could squeeze it in somewhere, but we value the open space too much and it just wouldn't look good....all this planing was a waste of time, I guess I'll have to choose one or the other...I'm so bummed out about it! smsad.gif

    I don't know what your budget is but you might want to call in a landscape designer for ideas.

    Believe me I feel bad for disappointing all of you, specially those that invested time to help me figure things out

    @Nyboy unfortunately a professional landscaper would have the same tape measure we used, this project just doesn't fit where we wanted it to.

    So does this mean that you still get both but they can't be attached? Or do you really have to decide on only one? Maybe add onto your other pond somehow to make it bigger. Other wise you just may have to move :whistle:

    I can still get both but not in a combo! If I would to build the original plan, everything would be so cramped up it would leave very little options for landscape and although I would have loved to have the indoor outdoor pond, it just would not be as neat as the one I pictured in my head

    So I think we are knocking down the lower deck and build the pond there, and the greenhouse will have to go a bit away from the house

    kinda suck, unfortunately the chicken coop in in the way!
