<p>Pond is looking nice. Very nicely you shared pond building steps. For building pond we have to choose very carefully pond liner. Because pond&rsquo;s life depends upon the pond liner.

<p>What a cool fountain, and how easy was that to make!</p>
It was pretty easy Barbara, the only problem was to get the circular shape and nice mortar gaps I had to cut a small piece from the back af every alternate brick. easy enough with an angle grinder. The build took 2 days including the base etc. Have a look at the other fountain I made from a spa too, that was made for next to nothing
<p>Nice fountain, simple construction. Excellent project, thanks for sharing it!</p>
<p>have a look at the other fishpond fountain I made too (what to do with an old spa)</p>
<p>Very nicely done, approximate cost?</p>
I like to cover myself in vaseline and pretend I'm a slug
I like how it glows in the night.
Something you can do to make better is get solar panels from walkway lights and run rgb led strips on inner rims of waterfall to enhance the whole thing
Great job did this professionally for awhile.
great job... thanks for getting it to post... beautiful!
