|A day's digging can make a difference. Sod was removed to an area that needed it.
|Liner in, the extra flaps of liner are scrap to protect the main liner from rough edged granite.
|The pump is running! And we are prepared for the rain that is coming in.
|All the stone on-site is on the pond. The fish are in the pond. The plants are in the pond. But that waterfall top is the only flat stone on the pond. It just doesn't match...and we need a few more boulders.
|The finished waterfall.
|The finished pond. The only shot that shows the petrified wood seat and 'table' at the corner.
|The finished pond. It will grow and bloom as the plants come out of dormancy. It will clear when it finishes cycling. Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter bacteria multiply very slowly in cold temperatures, and while they are still multiplying some haziness is normal. Mud on boots adds a bit of haze too.
