Go easy on me cause I'm just a guy who maintains lawns and landscaping. Thanks.
This is an example of a failed pond/waterfall attempt. Done by the home owner.



This is my proposal to fix it.

By watching this types of jobs and the ones where time and effort were put into I have learned so much about ponds even tough I have build just a few.
One of the mistakes I see often is people think a pond has to have a major water fall the tallest the better, even on the proposal picture (no offense) I see it out of scale for such small area, we all want a japanese maple this days they are nice and beautiful and go pretty good next to water but not on all sites, MMHO

The home owner did a better job than the hack job. I can't be leave he didn't even try to hide the liner and box
