    no pictures. i am in the doodleing phase of what i will build in 5years. i imagine a 10x10 playhouse coop type of thing.But no coop area, instead some huge tree limbs and mandarin-duck nestingboxes. on the other end i would like a 5-6ft wide and 6-8 foot long and about 24 in deep pond, maybe with a little waterfall feature .some planters with plants that grow on river and lake edges...the shape should be either kidney or something not round or square, something like this

    And here is a view looking towards it:

    The pump/filter system for the waterfall itself is hidden in that rock pile. It is a big drum that just has rock stacked arround it.

    Thank you. I can't take the credit for doing it though. Just maintaining it. The previous homeowners of our house installed the pond. But we love it, it is what made the Hubs fall in love with this house.

    This is from our house in town, we moved in Oct to the country.
    It did not have a waterfall, just a fountain but I do miss my fish terribly, they are such fun to watch/feed!

    I love your ponds! Mine is very small, and I don't have any good pics. I'm going to try to enlarge it this summer, any suggestions?

    cmcgoun and 1momma, what kind of pumps, filters, skimmers etc do you have on your ponds?

    I have minnows and feeder goldfish in my pond. The raccoons that kept raiding my pond don't like feeder goldfish; they only like fish that cost $5 or more each.

    This is our little pond, I waited 5 years to FINALLY get a little pond! We have always had huge ones, my DH owns a custom pond business and always had a big display! I always wanted something small incorporated in the landscaping!
