    @sissy I love your leaves, you're very talented!
    @Jimmy Gibson I love your pond! I believe your pond helped me create the vision of the one I want, only difference being that I envision a waterfall spilling in a separate tub just for plants and then onto the fish pond, same setting I currently have and love.
    How come you don't have a showcase?

    Approximately 15' wide X 18' long X 4' at deepest point...... 3000 gallons. Hindsight I wished I had incorporated a bog on the upper end. I still could and have a plan, but can't seem to talk the boss into it. I think she is tired of construction mess..... Lol

    I thought we were set on using these blocks, but after spending the weekend watching youtube videos on sculpted concrete, we changed our minds and are now thinking of building the pond out of cheap cinder blocks, and then cover the face with sculpted concrete stones....what do you guys think?
    This guy's work is amazing!

    If you do use concrete use the high strength kind .I use profinish 5000 .I think it was waterbug on here that used to make a lot of fake rocks .

    He's an artist! I can't imagine how much time he puts into his work, the detail is incredible.
