    Thanks @addy1 , you all are so kind! I started reading your pond build thread and let me tell you I am super impressed by the amount of work you accomplished and I'm only 2-3 pages into the post!

    I was a few years younger, hubby working, had to do something with my time. And I love ponds. Not sure I could do it again. My poor hands are giving me issues.

    Great pond , the logs are a grest look . I am considering building an above ground patio pond with similar dimensions this summer. The flat box filter , are you keeping that in the pond or in the over flow box? Are you planting the over flow box to make a bog or veggie type filter?

    Thanks @Gordo33 , I actually have the flat box filter in the pond itself and it filters the water before being pumped out of the pond and through the UV clarifier before spilling back into the pond. The overflox box has water hyssop and parrots feather that have done very well in general but suffered a bit more from this most recent winter, but I'm hoping they bounce back well as it warms up. In theory these plants should provide an additional layer of filtration akin to a raised bog filter.
