    Here is a picture of my first pond. I am going back in a couple of weeks to landscape around it.

    Thanks she. This is cypress mulch...its not pine straw. A little may make it into the pond, but chances are not very much.

    We are putting landscaping around it which should help a lot, not to mention the watering.

    Pond looks great, now if my pond turns out half as good as that I will be doing great. One question though, youIr water looks really dirty. Is the pic just after being filled or do you just not do any treatment to your pond?

    I didn't clean the rocks properly.....all of the dirt should settle in the next few days. I set them up on proper water treatments.
