    Any one out there constructing pond / water features full time?

    I'd like to make the leap and only install these. Just wanted to see how it's working for others.

    this guy i know pond installs is pretty much all he does. he has a small location where he sells fish and plants and pond supplies but installs main item. this guy is good and travels several places to do installs. i would say that he is making a good living doing this.

    in a different area I would have no concerns. However here in nw ohio our soil structure is mainly clay based. Several feet down one will hit blue clay, which can actually form a water proof surface. Thus, this area is the farm pond capital of the country. People can get a 1/2 acre pond dug for the same thing I would charge to install an 11x16.

    Anyone else installing full time
