    I'd have to upgrade image shack, but I need to do that anyway. What is the max image size?

    The avatar is an image of part of it during "renovation" stage. I have the old liner(s), out, and used the old outer epdm as a pre liner to the new epdm.

    No idea on image size, but if you select UPLOAD A FILE on the "reply" page, it tells you that info on-screen.

    140505_001.jpg This bulletin board is MUCH easier than other forum I am on. I will post more complete images. Grandaughter is napping else I'd go up, and get more images.

    Wow, you are going to make a HUGE change in what that pond looked like before. You will get lots of help from here, for sure. You could even keep this as your thread, or change it to another thread. Be sure to let us all know where you "went" so we can follow. I can't wait to see what you create.
    BTW, where are you located? I'd be happy to help you out with some plants. I have lots of colors of water lilies that need to be divided, and if you have a shallow area (I see you do, but not sure if you plan to plant it ...) I have lots of kinds of bog plants, too. Always happy to help out a school, if you're in a zone similar to my Illinois Zone 6 ... or is it 5a or something new now ... :)

    Thanks. I am in Tulsa, Ok. The exsiting area has (I believe) Japanese rush plants that I can plant around the perimeter of the pond. I am doing this for an elementary school. I am a novice, but that is why I joined this bulliten board is to learn.

    Hey Kevin,Welcome! Ideally the pond you set up once it's established will take care of itself with minimal outside help. There is a lot you can learn on various threads here. Good luck!
