I added it this summer (it's a faux log) after seeing GB's version and knowing I'd probably wait a long time to find something 'real' that would look the same. I ain't young anymore and patience isn't as easy to justify anymore!Nothing like rain drops on a still pond. I never noticed your log waterfall feature, either. Love it.
Thank you, Stephen; I'm humbled. There's a good and bad to being enclosed; good as no mosquitoes and can enjoy anytime, and bad, because I've run out of room to emulate others' ideas that really interest me! I think that's why I stocked heavily this year on koi; couldn't add anywhere else!Whoa, that's beautiful! Looks like something one would see at a public attraction.
I always smile when you do, j.w; I do like an open layout better re natural design but for over 25 years I hardly ever sat in my backyard at night as the mosquitoes are very hardy here and I'm not! It was the one design feature I wasn't going to opt out of when I originally did this. Seems like I lucked into a lot more than I ever thought, looking back now on other ponder's issues that I seem to skirt.Did I ever tell you how much I love your pond, covering, plants, fish and everything? It's gorgeous and so perfect!
I'm struggling with what leaf protection to employ this year. I better decide quick because the leaves are already starting to fall! One good thing is that we have so much water lettuce coverage that they are preventing the leaves from sinking! I always erect a PVC frame covered with pond netting. I would love to build something like you have but on a smaller scale or maybe more of a temporary structure that can be dismantled in the Spring. I think the price of lumber has started coming back down. Maybe I'll do a temporary "A" frame type structure covered with plastic sheeting to include the pond and bog.
you could do it out of the same 4" weave you have now, @j.w .If we built one like @brokensword has I would just use chicken wire or something w/bigger holes to allow frogs and birds to enter as we don't have issues w/bugs here. That way it would still keep out the Heron, raccoons, etc. from making sushi out of my fish but let in my friendly critters.
