    Here is a pond that I did for some neighbors. Was a memorial pond for their son that died in the Navy.

    Very nicely done,Looks real good
    The only problems I see with it is that it is under a large tree and will have debri problems and the cord is not buried underground in conduit.Looks very good though

    Thanks. Yeah, when I instaleld the pond this Fall there was already alot of debris faliing in the pond. The homeowner was all aware of this and he did not mind cleaning it out.

    The cord showy is just hooked into a extension cord. There is conduit bured and is just waiting for the Electrician to come and wire it up. I am not a certified Electrician, so i had one hook up all the wiring. Just trying to save my butt. Did not want to hook it all up and have something go bad.

    Yeah, the bench says Forever Young. It is a memorial bench and pond for their son. He was in the army and was on leave, in Hawaii and was killed on a motorcycle. He was only 22. Pretty sad. He has a younger sister and brother and the pond was the idea of his younger brother that is in third grade. Just a memorial and something to remember their son/brother by.
