Pond #1 and Pond #2, but still a few we had overlooked.We wanted a few minor enhancements, so commenced another expansion. Not as big as the changes between
When upgrading Pond #2 to Pond #3, the biggest issue to resolve is where the fish could be kept for a few weeks. The solution? “Tub Med” — a soaking tub in the master bath.
The three major enhancements were 1) to have the plant shelves slope slightly backwards so plants wouldn’t fall forward into pond; 2) dig a dedicated lotus plant shelf; 3) put in a very shallow shelf that we could line with rocks to make the edge a bit more “transparent”.
Construction went smoothly. Several years later, everything’s still running perfectly. The results? Looking at the pictures and videos, I’d say I’ve earned bragging rights. 🙂
