Pond Progress Report

I am nearing the end. I have worked and potted and cleaned and gathered until I am exhausted. Remember I started this project last weekend. (You can go back and see beginning shots) I am maybe 95% done!

To the right, I have a dog walk so they may drink here, too.

Parrot Grass


The plants are a little thinner and better arranged.


The water lilies have done very well along with the bog bean. I still have a pile to pot but it is getting smaller. The gazing ball needs to be straighter.

Getting closer!

Will you also have a fountain or waterfall, too?
I love the sound of water.
Your pond is gorgeous! And looks so natural, like it's been there for years.
Great job!

Gail....its beautiful! Your hard work is paying off in a lovely way. I like all the rocks you used around it. The dog walkway is a thoughtful addition, too.
