The pond is 12' by 15' and about 3.5 feet deep with a 1.5' deep by 2' wide shelf around half the area. the pump feeds up to a stream and then falls into the pond. I just added a boatload of submerged plants to clarify the water

Finished product

almost dne!

I had a piece of land that I could not blend into the landscape...trying to decide what to do and came up with the idea of putting a pond in. This pond have over 1,000 boulders that was assembled manually, (what a job). The size is 100ft length and 50ft being the widest point. Is in the process of purchasing a floater with 5 different attachments.

Our backyard pond project - round 5

by Amy Semenchuk
(Roscoe, IL USA)

We have redone our pond 5 times. It has been in its current form for 2 years. We added the rocks in the bottom for the resident toads and frogs to lay on. The pond was the first project and then i added a garden an small pation to the left. This summer's project is to add a raised bed to the right. We also want to add many more irises as they are my favorite flower. This year I had 6" - 8" heads on my larger plants. Georgeous!

My backyard paradise in Canada

by Marlene Maschke
(Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada)

This is my first pond I constructed. I had some help with the heavy shovelling. The measurements are 10 feet x 6 feetx 20 inches deep. It has a shelf for shallow water plants. I have a 1000 gph pump on it with a underwater biofilter. I have a few species of plants in it. I made a small waterfall and I have a 10 foot spray on the fountain for sound and water movement. I have 3 underwater led floodlights for night that come on at dusk by a sensor. I have a small koi and about 30 little feeder fish in it. I bought all my pond supplies, and black flagstone from my local building store. I also have 50 lbs of river rock to give it a natural look. I have 5 rescue dogs border collie x's and I had to put up a small fence to keep them out of it, although they can jump it no problem. lol. I absolutely love water gardening. Every weekend I come home with some new decoys, or accessories to change the look slightly. I enjoy looking at other people's pics to see their artisitic impressions of water gardens. Next year I am planning on adding another pond bigger and deeper and I will order a load of natural flagstone for a more natural look. I also put ina small perennial garden beside it and I have a backyard with 3 large spruce trees where no grass will grow. So I decided to put down cedar mulch to cover the dirt areas and it stops mud from being tracked in from my rescue dogs, also easy to clean up pet waste.I hope you enjoy my pics as much as I do.
