Tahoe,

My previous pond was only around 200 gallons. It was nice but seemed I always ran out if room for the plants I wanted. The lilly pads would pretty much take it over. My new one is around 800 gallons and much deeper. I also put different levels in order to expand what I can keep. Although I wish I would've made it a little bigger and added a "marsh" area. I was considering a stream but I'm getting ready to install a pool and wanted to make sure nothing interfered. If I have room afterwards I will expand it. We really enjoy it. That whole area is going to get expanded more in order to fill in the space between my house deck and pool deck. It'll be tough to get a mower in there so why not just make it all garden. Thanks everyone for the kind words. Its great to see other ideas. Especially since I'm moving a bunch of stuff around for this pool. I even had to push my veggy garden to the "back 40". 1.25 acres and I'm running out of space!

Looks like one of those German Shepherd type plants, can be hard to keep out of the other flowers :D  I have the same issue with "Boxer" weeds. :smilewink:

 

I have held off building a new one just because of room in front yard, dogs would be in it in back yard. I like the natural ones, but I also like just a square box one with either wood sides or just decorative block too for some reason. We maybe moving to my mom's place next year and she has a perfect spot for a big one.

Don't we always want one bigger after we build it...pond, garden, garage, house. :thumbs:

Here's a few flower pics taken June 20. The lilac bushes are 30 years old and about 20 feet tall. We used to have a 100 gal. stock tank that we sunk in the ground and used as a fish pond with an aquarium pump etc. hooked up, looked real nice and the sound of the water splashing was relaxing. Then we acquired one of those German Shepherd "weeds" who figured all her toys had to be washed in the pond. Unfortunately they didn't all float, so she had to go in after them, and soon she was spending almost as much time in the pond as the fish lol.IMG_0854.JPG IMG_0841.JPG IMG_0843.JPG IMG_0856.JPG
