Here's the two ponds in the back. I have 3 koi and one goldfish in the pond at the bottom of the first photo (800 gallons). Two sarassa in the top pond (200 gallons).

This is my new little watering hole in the front. There is a small prefab waterfall leading into it, but I fill it with impatiens, so you don't even see it. There's two small goldfish in there for mosquito control & the plant-filled waterfall keeps the algae at bay (and it gets some shade).

Wonderful pictures of your pretty ponds!
Looks like you did a lot of hard work on them, and it all came out great! [thumb]

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!!! [thumb]
I love it all!
Do those big rocks "grow" near you, or did you have to buy those? Rocks don't grow here; we only have sand, but people sell them! For a lot of money! [devil]

I'm a bit late...but thanks! (Been out of town).

The rocks don't exactly grow near me, but they grow near my inlaws and we have a big truck. [Wink]

How do you keep the impatients in the waterfall feature? I realy like that idea. Just cant figure out how ya do it without washing away all the dirt around the roots, and without haveing a muddy mess in the pond?

It doesn't matter where you go in life... It's who you have beside you when you get there.
