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.|

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...

|xmas_one||Can't you just put a new liner in over the old one? Seems like that would be an easy fix. Looks awesome by the way.|

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.

|STS_1OO||I think you did an awesome job. Assuming that it needs to be redone, my vote is redo it rather than scrap it forever!|

|jhays79||How deep is your pond? I love how it's tucked next to your deck and house, it looks really sweet!|

I had mine set up for less than a year and I totally redone mine. It was a pain but I wasn't happy with my first pond. Now I want to redo it again, make it bigger, bigger waterfall, more plants, ect. The only thing stopping me is the wife and my (her) money!
I think it's a very nice looking pond, I'm sure it would be even better looking if you redo it.

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???
