zoragen I like it better also!

I love the landscaping around it.

BittyB I think that looks quite nice! I like the tiered planters in the back. While it's smaller, I do like it better than the before. It almost looks just as big because it's not so narrow and looks more open.

dewalltheway Well....an update on the pond. Back in March, the pond developed a leak and I was losing 3" of water a day so I went to TSC and bought a 110 gal Tuff Tub and but it in my basement, transfered the fish and shut the pond down. Then in May, I removed all the rock and the liner so I didn't have standing water. Now fast forward to the past week where I transfered the fish to a 75 gal tank I borrowed from my neighbor and used the Tuff Tub to redo my water garden. I was going to redo the whole pond by getting a new liner and filters, etc. but I did not have the money so i am going to have to settle for a small water garden at this point. Below are some pics after working on it today...

I think it's a very nice looking pond, I'm sure it would be even better looking if you redo it.
I am happy with it overall but I am not satisfied with how I did the waterfall and that I can see the liner at the bottom of it so those things I am going to fix...know what you mean about the money!

At it's deepest point it is like 30" deep which I really wanted it deeper so I will be digging it out alot more when I redo it. It does fit very well where it is at but if I wash the siding, it is a pain.

Will definitely be redoing it...just need to save some money first.

I could but there are things I want to change and the biggest work is doing the rocks. I may use some of the existing liner for extra protection.

dewalltheway Update: Last night I pulled the fish out of the pond and put them in 2 aquariums I have downstairs. I will be getting a 110 gal Tuff container to put them in this weekend where they will stay till I get money to redo the outdoor pond. I will also be housing some of the submerged plants in that container as well.

I was losing 3" of water per day and can't afford to keep filling it up everyday. Water for me is to expensive. I don't have the funds to redo it right now but will start tearing it apart and digging it out this spring. The new liner & protector will cost me around $400 alone so it will probably be a year before I get this back up and going. Pretty bummed out at the moment.

dewalltheway I have a big decision to make with this pond....tear it out and redo it or tear it out and be done with it. I have a hole somewhere that is leaking out water and it could be anywhere. I never liked how I did the waterfall and wanted to redo it but I have spent alot of time on this thing and not sure if I tear it out if I want to spend the time again putting it back together. Don't get me wrong, I loved doing it but man is it alot of work not to mention money to buy a new liner. What to do! spring is around the corner and need to decide.

What do you all think???
