So remember my earlier post about the nice dirt pile I had that we wanted to turn into a pond? It happened this weekend. We order a pond in a box from Costco (love that place), yes they really have a pond in a box and you know what...it rocks! It comes with everything you need...liner, pump, rocks, morter, etc. We were a little skeptical at first so we had a friend that does ponds check it out. He said it looked good to him so we ordered it. Saturday morning we started our project...step 1 dig a big hole (that was mainly the mister's job), step 2 put in liner and place rocks (again the mister's job to move big rocks), step 3 morter rock (again the mister...do you see a theme?), step 4 decorate (that was me), step 5 fill (again I can handle this). Now all I have left to do is some landscaping around it. I am in the process of researching some cool plants...full sun. I am looking for something that will get some height to it but not necessarily a tree. I definitely need color around as well (beige house, beige rocks, beige patio, you see where I am going with this), so if you have any ideas let me know!
