Hello! I bought a house with a cute pond, but knew it could be much better! So, when it got a leak last year, I decided to redo it. It still looks like a pile of rocks right now, but I will do a lot of plantings in between all the rocks next spring. I am really excited about it. Previously, there was no skimmer and you could see all the plumbing on the bottom and the hose came out the side. I added rock to the bottom and a waterfall instead of a hose just sticking out. Great improvements for my first time around. I am a 125lb lady and moved every rock here by myself. Ladies: You can do it!!

When ever I see the wife with the shovel I keep a close eye out wondering if I'm going to get the rolling pin per say but with an Agway stamp on it. she prefers the Agway she says it has a long reach.

Heck yeah!! My next pond is going to be much bigger!! Guess I found the right site for strong women that know how to put in a hard days work. Thanks!
Oh my gosh, yes. My husband was a little scared of me when I got out there digging. Getting through some of the big hardpan layers and around big roots became an obsession!

Very nice rebuild of your pond and welcome to GPF! Do you have any fish in your pond?
No fish yet. I have too many other things going on, didn't want to add additional lives to be responsible for! Maybe someday.
