    Found this posted on Facebook with over 3,000 likes so far. Is it any wonder that 'trunk slammers' survive in this business when people think this looks nice?

    OK. Who wants to go first. How many things can you find wrong?

    Exposed wiring, exposed tubs, wrong type of lily for such a small space, tubs are not level, poor flow and aesthetics, overcrowding of plants, no variance in stone size, and looks very minimal in the way of structure. I'm almost certain they have the cheapest pump/filter they could purchase. Hope they won't be putting kois In

    that bridge must be built pretty tough. It looks like its retaining the whole thing. I love the spotlight and its placement on the top too!

    Be sure to look closely at what can be seen of the separate pond behind the bridge that supposedly has one Koi. There were more, but a Heron stopped by for lunch according to the OP on Facebook.

    It truly would take less "ink" to say what isn't wrong with it...............................................................................................................................................The bridge and the urn back by the other pond look nice.........

    Natural looking no, but it's cool looking in a different way.

    Looks more like a Home Depot display then anything I would want in my backyard. I wouldn't want to be around when those rocks start shifting. They might as well have painted all the pond liners pink to conceal them better.
