    What varmints is that fence made to keep out though? Looks like 10 feet of height. Tigers? Bears? Dope fiends?
    Sorry there are no tigers in my country... Behind is a soil retaining wall that goes over 20meter high.On top of that is another house.Couple of years ago the slope gave way after heavy rain,lots of mud and soil came down into my yard and pond.I lost almost all of my kois except 2.That was a low point in my koi keeping career.We rebuild the slope and make sure that it will not come down again and thank god I was able to get over the loss of my kois and Im still in the hobby.Cheers!

    There are no tigers in mine either. But we have plenty of all the other varmints. Any progress end of the week?

    Managed to plastered all of the exterior wall today.Will be doing the water-proofing on Monday and also pouring some more concrete to the shallow end of the pond.

    Koimann- I like the way that the rocks which were at water's edge are now part of the walls you've added, buttressing the wall figuratively and blending the square box of the new height into the ground. Nice fitting.
