A Pond forum?!?!

Just wanted to say hi. I've been on Lawnsite a little more than a year and just now noticed this forum. This made my day! About 80% of my installs includes a water feature. I'm always trying to find new ways of doing things... Hopefully some of you would like to bump some ideas around. It's great to see others that can build a quality pond!

If 80% of your installs include a water feature and you have been on LawnSite for more than a year, HOW could you NOT notice this forum?

I made a profile over a year ago... Never really used it. Now I'm hooked!

You are absolutely right. I am the same way, as are probably most LawnSite members. Usually time is a premium, so one zeroes in on the subject matter that relates to their line of work and interest.
The OP explained his post. I think that we all have joined something at one time or another and never bothered to investigate or participate initially, only to discover later that we had really been missing something that could be of value.

Big thing is finding out if they want a water feature with the the water and whatever moves in or if they want a fish pond.

If they want a fish pond, ponds are different. Goldfish ponds won't be as deep as a koi pond. A koi pond needs to be at least 3 feet deep with alot of filtration.

Just found this forum as well.. I've been on plowsite for a while, ran out of things to talk about with the lack of snow. So i started checking out lawnsite.
