So we completed our pond late last summer (2017) as part of the garden overhaul and it was fantastic this year - only issue was the algae!! It has changed a bit since these photos were taken, with the addition of a waterfall and removal of the fountain.

Neat idea on incorporating that pond into your deck! Looks beautiful!
Thanks! It took some figuring out but we're happy with the end result - also, we soon discovered that it's at a great height for the dogs to get a drink from the pond without bending down!!

We never compare! We love ALL ponds! Many people start with a smaller pond or water feature to get their feet wet (haha! Oh I love myself!) and then graduate up to a bigger one as time or money or energy or all of the above allow!

Our first water feature was a pondless waterfall. Then I got a patio pond. Then we built our main pond - and I still love all three!

I think your pond is pretty cool and proportionate to the deck!

Thanks Gemma, we're over the moon with it, the only thing now is that i'm looking at building a bigger one next to it!! lol
Lol that's pretty much how the story goes for most ponders!
I started with a 1500gls having had fish tanks a 1500 gls pond seemed so huge, but then I got the "itch" to go bigger, so we enlarged it to 2500gls ...a few years after that the "itch" started up again so we made it even larger 3800gls . At that point there was no more room to go deeper or larger so we "thought" we were safe...but no! This year we started digging a much larger pond in the backyard. So good luck to you cause you're in for a fun ride!...and a lot of digging!:D

I'm in love with your Avatar! :)
