pond pictures

I've gotten a lot of info and ideas from this forum, especially from looking at other's designs. So I thought I'd post one we did a few years ago to enhance the database of design ideas here. This is a bottom drain pond, 4 ft at the deepest point. I don't post often and have never posted a pic, so I'll try again if this doesn't work.

Looks Great I love the choice of stone you used. Is it an ADI pond?

don't know what an ADI pond is. waterfall is very heavy limestone, we used a tractor backhoe to set into place. other stones are basic creekstone and river slicks. It was lots of work for a first pond, but a great learning experience. Only a few things have made me as nervous as cutting a hole in the liner for a bottom drain.

sweet! I like the way the edge of the pond is done, and I really think it has a natural look that fits the surroundings. Pictures like that are the reason I posted in the first place, they really can give some creative ideas for others to aspire to.

Thanks for the compliments. We had a lot less man hrs than you would think. The work was in cutting the soldier course around the whole patio project. Outcropping stones, I think we had 6 hrs on the bid and used 3 hrs setting them so you can sit on them beside the stream.
