Here is a picture of my patio
what sites did you use to learn how to build something like that i would like to no i have done some researching but haven't much help in the how to area if you could share what site you used that would be great because that is one awesome pond with the stream the stream looks awesome
Well I surfed a lot of sites don't really remember their names. I know this forum was very helpful. There are a few threads with step by step instructions. I looked at different companies like Stoney Creek and Aquascapes. I purchased the pond builders bible and their how to DVDs.
I would like to have attended a build a pond day, because nothing beats hands on training. There were a lot of things that I had to redo because of my inexperience. May be you could contact a local builder and volunteer to be a helper on a few installs, maybe even offer to pay, that would be invaluable.
Here is some pics of the pondless waterfall we did. It really turned out cool, the homeowner wanted us to cut out the side of the biofalls for a second waterfall.
Oh, I love the true texas patio!!!! :blob3:
fishinman I liked your pondless falls. I am thinking about doing one for my in-laws. They have a load of fossil rock limestone, that we hauled in from Crawford, that they don't know what to do with.
So... did you cut the side out of the biofalls or did you split the flow with the rocks?
Ya we cut out the side of the biofalls.
Here's the website to the guy I work for[URL=http://www.pondsbydesign.com
he should have some more photos on their too.
So do you do mowing in Texas too or mainly landscaping??
I have a couple more photos of ponds we did ......
Feel free to ask any ?s.
Actually I am self-employed working on computer networks. Business is slow and I am thinking about starting a second business doing general landscaping and maintenance. I have most of the equipment, enjoy the work, and most people like the way I keep my three acre yard. But I do have a lot to learn... understatement
I would suggest a bottom drain on ALL ponds, and minimal rocl/gravel in the pond. Makes next year alot more enjoyable.
it does loook great by the way.
n2h20--Bottom drains are not really necessary with aquascape ponds and other ponds... When you create the shelves in the pond and rock it and gravel the pond thats what creates a lot of filtration plus not to mention a properly working skimmer. Just my opinion
