    [/FONT]Hello all.

    Ive had my landscape biz for 9yrs now and thought I would expand into ponds.
    Here's my first one. Please tell me what you think. I'm very happy with how it turned out, but I'd like to hear some of your thoughts. Also what would you charge for something like this?

    Looks pretty good. It seems the rocks around the border are just piled there though.

    Other than that, great first pond :)

    This is an older thread but I would like to comment anyway.I thing you did a great job on this project!It blends well,you used good judgement in placing the rock and I like it overall.I think you might have made more"Fall"
    more water flowing down to several levels because the rock at the top of the falls tends to overpower the actuall water flow.I thing you did a wonderfull job though.
