Well I did some work by the pond yesterday morning. I expanded the mulch area to the right of the picture and I added a rock in the water to break the surface for a duck or frog sitting area , this also is on the right side of the pond. Now we have 3 rocks above the surface in the pond. I added the mulch area due to the fact I had to keep raking the mulch off the grass due to the ducks and deer eating the cracked corn, I guess looking for more moved the mulch on the grass. I gave it another 3ft and so far so good, no raking. Put the chairs back out and we are ready to go. I also added nature bird feeder post near the stone bench, I did that a few weeks ago. Looks much nicer then the metal poles and makes for nice picture perches They are near the stone bench.
