Pond build
Just wanted to share my pond build. I think i did the pond caculator it said it was 430 gallons.

One day I woke up and said I want a pond so phone call later my buddy and I had a hole in the ground. I lost my pictures of when i first built the pond so the pictures are me redoing it to hide the linner better. It has brought me much enjoyment so feel free to ask any ? . The plants in it all were grown from lowes kits excpet the grass i got from a friend. It has a fishmate filtration with built in U.V.

Taking a break

Liner in and fill time (we wait and pull and tug )

first layer of rocks down (the fill and wait some more )

Right when it was done, moved fish and what little plants i had over

This year at its best so far
ok ok i might of slacked little this year with mulch

And the pump went out so i replaced it and dug the hoses up and didnt put them back at the time

Pond in the front yard... Nice I'm thinking about doing one in the front yard also.
What's the price for those black sheeting?
