    Cool Lilhelpers 6000 Gallon pond!!!

    For all that have not seen the thread, My Sensei Bob asked for them


    Here is just some photos that are showing us mine our koi pond out, we had to rent a jackhammer to get this far.

    right now about 100% of the total pond is dug

    The ponds dimensions are 23' x 14' x 3.5'-4' with a smaller bog.


    Estimated cost is around 3000-4000 USD
    And the othe Photos is just my family having a great time.

    Update: Liner is Purchased Dimensions are 25 x 32.



    All of these photos are Old but, and I am going to get the new ones within a couple of days. My koi that I purchased and 1 that was given as a gift will be posted here.


    The boys in the photo are my cousin and the tall one is my twin

    The parents are my step dad david, and my mom, people say she looks like demi moore, HAHAHA

    Man all of the rock was a major pain in the butt to get out, but its out!!

    there's always something special about photos that put faces with the names,
    to say nothing about the excitement a hole in the ground can cause among koi kichi's....

    keep the photos coming.....maybe when the project is done we can up grade the name/handle to " big helper" ! best of luck!
