Our backyard in 2000 This is the back yard in January of 2000
It starts with a drawing

After planning where the pond will go and the size, the next step is to make an on scale drawing,

putting your ideas on paper.  You can make changes as you go along so that things fit just "right"

with the lay of the land.  As you are working on the actual pond you may get another idea that you

want to incorporate.  In this drawing you can see 3 ponds that are blue water stream and water falls..  The red is a bridge that goes over the pond.


Drawing of the plumbing.  I did not want any pipes, tubing, and pumps in my pond that would

detract from the pond itself. 

Everything is buried underground. The filter was then later camouflaged  so it would not be visit
