j.w submitted a new Showcase Item:

j.w's pond

We had been in our new home for a year when I decided to start my first pond. That was back in the Spring of 2001. The pond was about 15' x 6' wide or so and 3&1/2' deep and planted over the septic pipes that I ran into while digging.



Then I decided a few years later that maybe it was not so good of an idea to have a pond right over the septic pipes in case there was ever a problem and the pipes needed replacing. Really just used that as an excuse to make a bigger pond across to the other side of the sidewalk. The new pond I dug is about 15' long x 7' wide and 3&1/2' deep at around 2400 gal.

Lovely, j.w. For some reason I thought your pond was in the backyard. Also, you don't have a net over it?

Thanks John and yep it's in the front and yes I do now have a net. Those are older photos. That net is a lifesaver. My fish can feel safe now and float up there and stick their tongues out at the old heron :p
