Pond project - Jungle vines

Thanks for the comments. It was hard to fit on the space I had so I dug down 4 almost 5 feet to get the gallons I wanted for fish. I also had no easy way to remove earth so it's all behind the trellis you see at the back but it all fit back there.

I find its very deep (bought hip waders to do work in the pond)for lilys so I sit them on egg crate to get them closer to the surface. Hoping for a lot more growth this year as the pond matures in year 2 first year never goes as planned.

Plan on adding more koi (over winter I had pond de-icer fail due to breaker flip and ice blocked me from getting at the breaker in the pool pump room so I had No hole in the ice and lost all he fish over winter.

I need to restock this year and fix breaker issue for this winter.
