The second is some of the Koi.



Third is the Look Out deck.



Last is feeding time.

It is really not that bad. Keep the filter clean and remove debris at the beginning of the year and keep plants in it to make good oxygen to help with algae. We built this in one weekend. We used to have a pool there and my wife said I would like a fish pond. I called a few good buddies and a nice weekend and good grilling and cold beverages it was done. I will add one buddy had a backhole and another owns a gravel company. @--0--0118 You gotta love friends.

I have a smaller one back in the woods outside of a small feed plot that all the critters drink from, I put pond plants and a few minnows in it, long with the all the frogs that take up residence its cool for the kids to visit.

Nice pond wv.

I had a eye sore of a pond in my front yard that was over grown with cattails that I finally cleaned up and dug out last year.
It was a major honey do item but it turned out great.  Planted trees, added a windmill for airation, added a dock and landscaped with boulders.  The pond is stocked with lots of fish and they are fun to feed.  I used to have a fish feeder until it attracted coons and the wife did not like me shooting them off the dock from the front porch at 6m in the morning.  here are some pics of the project - before and after pics
