nice job nigil...now finish it.
that little stream bed with the one inch of liner folded up makes me very nervous. good windy storm and you risk losing water. You need to prop that up some more from underneath.
There are rocks behind the liner next to the deck, they hold the liner pretty well.....the low part is actually a test I ran on total volume for the stream (lots of rain) It passed. I am actually waiting for some of the rock on a roll to come to line along the deck and will fill in where needed behind the liner. Keeps raining here, so once it stops I can finish the cosmetic stuff (on phase 1). Thanks for the comments, keep 'em comin.
gotcha. that rock on a roll is something else. Looking forward to see how you will use it.
could you maybe put plants in that stream help with filtering ...just an idea nice pond :0)
Thanks, I am planning on putting some sort of plant in the stream, but am at a loss on types. I was thinking some sort of ground cover type, but I am unsure as to how well it will do in constant flowing water. Any suggestions?
watercress is brill ..but im not sure if you can get it could just be held in by some of the stones its great for taking nitrates out of your water
I've had mint in fast flowing water. I take a piece of it, put the end under a rock and leave it. It develops roots really quick and grows super fast. It can also be quite invasive so you have to be careful.

And the frog has finally entered the pond(been waiting under the deck till I was done)
Nice job of stacking the rocks. Is there a ledge the first row is sitting on?
Thanks, and yes those are on a ledge about 8 inches wide and 4 inches below the ground.
