    Nice job!

    One thing we have learned over the years is to thin the rock population near the edge and add plants in there. Then we will take some boulders and use them scattered throughout the surrounding landscape. What this does is to soften the edge of the pond as well as tie the pond into the landscape.
    By carrying the rocks out further but thinner into the surrounding landscape, you trick the eye into not seeing the line where the rock starts, looks even more natural and softer on the eye. It brings more unity and balance to the whole view.
