     Put this together for the wife the other day, Picked up the plastic pond at an auction a few years ago and just got to put it to use.  I think It came out good, we put strawberries in the boxes and have a few hollow logs to use as flower pots next to it.  should look real good when the berries come up next year.

    Best part is I now have an IOU for the next gt I find and want :D :thumbs:

   I made the fence when we bought the house to keep the dogs away from the satellite stuff!!!!  silly dogs will get into anything.  We may put fish in there, we have a tank in the house so wintering them would not be hard.

Wow ! that came out sweet, i would love something like that for the garden.

 

I'll bet momma was tickled pink, the dish is saved from the dogs and you get to hunt for another GT, sounds like everyone wins.

Nice pond! I like the idea of having it elevated--- saves the back when it comes time to service the pump and filter.

Nice looking. Normally I would say wintering fish in pond is okay, but being elevated, looks like you would have to take fish in side or they might freeze.

Best thing I have down for my outdoor pond was build a bigger drum style filter. Granted I have a few goldfish, frogs and a turtle in there, but it keeps the pond so much healthier.

 

Can't wait until I build my big pond at the new house next year.

 

I have those same dogs problems. Bad part is they can be jumpers, would have to build a 6' fence to keep them out LOL
