My first new pond

Just some pics of a pond My Wife and I made today.
Nothing to fancy The rocks are recycled from a friends old raised flowerbeds.
The beach gravel from a number sign I did last year in the front yard.
The pond liner is an old preformed liner someone was trashing at the curb one garbage day.
The pump I bought on sale two years ago for my Wifes Birthday.
So total cost in cost of project $25.00 for on sale pump .
Spending a warm sunny day with my darling wife doing what I like to do PRICELESS.

That's kinda cute. For what you spent, that's probably about the best you could hope for.

You could probably make something 300% better if you used a real liner, underlayment, better pump, and nicer rock.

But that ain't bad. Nice first water feature. Given your budget, it's even more impressive.

Great little pocket garden feature. Great use of recycling old materials.
