    Hey everyone, glad to be here! Can't wait to learn new tricks and techniques on building and maintaining ponds. I've had a couple small ones in the past 10 years, I'm pretty happy with my current pond. The water still needs some cleaning, but the fish love it! It also has a river feature which really creates a unique environment. Thanks for having me!

    I love it, thanks. I just replaced the liner last week and unfortunately it still won't stay full. Other than that it's a really cool place to sit and enjoy.

    Hello and welcome! Nice pond, and I love streams -- wish I could work something like that into mine. What kind do fish do you have?

    Welcome. It looks really nice. I like the vegetation you have by it and the lighthouse is really cute.

    Welcome, it looks good, and the curved stream is a great idea.

    Here are some of the new Lilly Pads we added. Also you'll notice the water is clear now, thank you UV Filter!
