    This is my first pond. PLEASE be nice :) It took me forever, cost me a fortune, and I learned alot about what not to do. This is my wife and I's first house and we knew we wanted a pond. All the rocks over the liner on the bottom are some sweet artifical rocks that we got from our new neighborhood sign after they finished building it. As you can see, I am nowere near being done, but its definatly a work in progress. I am going this afternoon to go get some more rocks.

    In the first picture, you can see my frustration. I promise I have the worst (clay) and hardest dirt around.

    I am not 100% sure how I wanna do the rocks around the top, but I am working on it today so we will see :).

    Looks like a gutter downspout in the upper right corner of the second picture?
    If you are going to put fish in the pond the gutter draining into the pond might cause trouble. I am in no way at all a pro at ponds limited exp at the most. just thought you might want to ask someone about the gutter. Please keep posting the progress it looks like it will be nice when done.
