This guy was charging his customer 55,000 for this pond that we build during this class. Or course we did not do any landscaping, he was going to finish that up and I dont know how much that involved.

I agree with the need to figure out things on your own, but when you rely on learning the hard way it can be very time consuming and expensive. I think $200 for 2 days worth of hands on instruction is a bargain. But I would also recommend researching other methods of construction as well.

ADi would be a good place to learn what not to do. Those ponds are always dirty. I like their ideas but not the equipment and design. I have never been to "build a pond day" but am interested in attending,.
