    How old is your daughter? Mines about the same age and she won't go near any sort of cold water. :)

    Pond looks good.
  3. Nice pond , but I like the tractor holding the volley ball net better.

    How exactly do those work? That looks just like a normal pond.

    That looks very well done!I like how you made it to look like it was actually flowing from somewhere,I think that is a shallow pond waterfall rather than a pondless waterfall.It looks great I commend you on your design and positioning and use of the rock.and the wood.I like this one!!

    Hi again. Its my son and grandaughter, she is 2 years old. Don't know how she found the place to take a dip. We now have about 10 lbs barley straw stuffed in a mesh bag right under the falls. After about 5-6 weeks hardly any algea, maybe a coincendence.
    The stand pipe is "planted" about 16 in down. I want to saw it off and maybe plant a lily in there and raise the water level about 3 in above stone.
    The black thing on the right is a sump well which has the pump inside. The water is pumped through the 3 in hose on the the 1000 lb rock. At the end on the hose is a 4 outlet manifold the even the water out. Lots of ideas that didn't turn out so hot. The plants don't seem to do very well. Any questions?

    This is our real job, seeding lawns. We seeded the lawn about 4 weeks ago.

    the house in the background has 2 people living in it!

    thats me on the loader tractor. I think I had my seat belt on!
    grass came in real well, I don't know how they will mow it. I told our men to tell them about New Holland Sales where they sell goats!
