    Hi all
    It's been a while since I have been on here. Not allot has changed with our ponds but we did finally get our patio done. Some may remember we had a dirt patio for the last 9 years. We also built a new shed and built my husband a covered area for black smithing. Its a beautiful rainy morning here so I took some pictures.

    Here is the before and after of the shed area.

    That is very nice. The patio frames the pond perfectly.

    Hi Sissy, no we did not re-do the pond just re-edged it after the patio was done. It had large rocks around it that would fall, sink in the dirt, etc. So we remove the rocks before the patio was done so they could pour the patio right up the cinder blocks. Then we put the decorative block around it afterword to hide the cinder block.

    Hi Pecan. Welcome back. I really like how your patio looks around your pond. I'm thinking of doing something like that for my new pond.
