Would you like it if I said your pond was horrible and that you should have had someone else build it that would have done a better job!

I didn't think so

I think im just tired of fixing and refurbishing ponds for customers that tried to do it themselves first.

WOODSBROTHERLC: If you but a little time and effort into that pond it could look nice. For example Make the rock look natural, and hide the liner for starters
What video did you watch and where did you get it. I would like to learn how to install ponds. Thanks

As a new member and enjoying what information I can get, I would THINK that a person that does pond building for a living you would appreciate having to fix other peoples inability to do the job to you standards, that makes business for you better and if that were not true you should not be doing a business that your not happy in. That is like saying I cant stand when people work on thier cars and I have to fix thier bad repairs who cares if I fix it from the begining or middle its still income. I would also hope that as a business owner my customers did not read such a post that you wrote, it was not very professional. and showed lack of compassion for what you do why not chime in and give him tips on what he could do to make it better in your opinion. goes back to your statement about speaking the truth, its not so much as the truth its how you articulate it. I am not meaning to ruffle any feathers just don't get bagging on someone when you don't even know them.

I like the location of your pond. It looks like it fits thare. As far as leaves my friend used the black plastic deer fence as a sort of roof to keep the large amount of leaves out. It worked aerry well.
With a fiew touches your ponds will look way better than some I have seen verry recently.
Weatherman try to be nice yours without the finish landscaping looks worse I am not trying to be mean just calling it like I see it

Weatherman i fully agree that while his looks like crap yours does to. The worst part is though somebody payed for your peice of crap. Just finished my first waterfall /pond looks alot better than that professionally installed pond by the perfectionist craftsman. The gravel looks like crap weatherman. Ill get pictures up as soon as they develop
