    New Pond

    We have a fairly new pond, and it was completed January, 2008




    Six months after it was completed, the UV light lens got coated with hard water deposits. After that got cleaned up, the foam dimished greatly.

    I have other photos, but they are too large to put here.

    New Koi Pond

    This was after it was completed, fresh new, and free of unheard of problems








    Stonework is nice.

    Lissa, what is that wooden contraption for? Is that to keep birds out or to keep the fish in?

    Are you not afraid that the fish could hurt themselfs against it?

    The follow is stil things that need to be done, not neccesarily in the order:
    1. Finish the cladding
    2. Add a pergola
    3 Add a net to protect the koi.
    4. Build a wall and roof over my pump setup.
    5. Add a bakki shower
    6. Add a step infront of the bridge
