Figure I would share some pics of our newest flower garden area. Still needing to pick up some annuals for the pond but other than that this one is done for now. I put this pond in last year and the garden around it followed after. Hope you all enjoy.

On the last picture you can see the skimmer I just installed on my pond. Makes cleaning it much easier as everything that falls in it flow into the skimmer itself. My pump for my waterfall is in there so that the entire pond slowly flows that way. After vacation I'm going to build a small "feeding" deck to cover it so that my little ones won't stand on it.

Actually there are fish in there. I had another smaller pond that had the carnival fish my kids would win in it. I transferred those over and filled the smaller one in. They actually have been reproducing and I'm up to 14 from the original 5. Just goldfish. I've done Koi but didn't like how big they got. My goldfish are around 3"-5" long. Don't mind the black chairs. They are not a permanent thing. Thanks everyone for the kind words. I really like the idea of dedicating the gardens. Those plaques on the posts are a great idea. I may have to copy your idea if you don't mind. Would love to see more. I always like to get good ideas from other's creations.

I got a dry creek bed, and one day I wondered if the soil would hold water

I got four of them now, two hold water year around. They are only filled by rain run off. The deer, raccoon's and birds love them!!

Cat, that is one serious rock. I could only imagine the equipment it took to put it there. Although they are quite a bit smaller, the rocks I used are from my wife's uncle's place. He has a farm in southern IN with a couple miles of creek running through it. The creek is covered in them. I even made some steps off my deck with some bigger ones. Lots of them have fossil in them. Cad, you are sitting in the ideal setting. That really neat how those dried beds now hold water. Kind of like bringing new life into them.

I noticed rocks inspire interest. Here is a pic of some rocks I landscaped with outside of my shed.

It is also a gratuitous pic of one of the machines I built. Can anyone guess what the machine is?

 

(Hint, the part on the ground is only an accessory!!)

That's a sweet looking pond, I want to build one like that someday.

My buddy has one very similar to yours, his is kind of on a slope so he has a natural flowing "creek" down to his main pond, then pumps the water back to the top. We have a 100-125 gal liner pond in our front yard, works for now.

We too have mostly fair/carnival goldfish or the feeders our turtles never ate and then they got too big. Them little $.19 goldfish can get huge and actually really pretty.  

I would like to build one large enough we can put a good size island in the middle and then my son's water turtles can actually live outside in a natural environment.....maybe someday!
