    Hmm

    Fancy word for a small pond in the yard.
    I am thinking about it, with a nice garden and walkway and such.
    One with a small rock falls and some fish.
    So.......do they draw bugs? Are they a pain in the arse?
    Are they hard to put in?
    Am I too old for this shiat?
    Hey cockroach, don't bug me!

    Make sure you get one that you can wash both feet at the same. And do not, I say do not pee in it...that's what the shed is for...remember.

    From this site:

    "Building a pond and waterfall requires quality components, proper design and technique, and a fair amount of physical labor."

    You should be asking the Breezemeister about this. Ponds are his specialty.

    See my little red house for the ponderific link.

    and I had some friends who put one in. Became the local hotspot for all the frogs in the neighborhood, who drew snakes and other critters. Then the HO Assn got on them about the noise the frogs were making...and so it goes
