Hello! I've lurked for several years... trying to get my pond built right. Started with a small stream into a 4x5 pond, had nothing but trouble: leaks, water not flowing right, etc. Several unfortunate events that resulted in pond being emptied out overnight or while I was at work. Fortunately there were no fish. I've given up numerous times but somehow I keep coming back to thinking I NEED this in my "Secret Garden". Finally got a kit (should've done that in the first place) and have things running now. It's a lot of work but already gives me so much satisfaction. Doing a lot of tweaking around the edges, transplanting some plants from elsewhere in the yard, waiting for my pond plants to arrive. I suspect it will never be "done" but at least most of the hard labor is over. Whew! I'm sure I will have many questions in the coming weeks.
