homemade stuff can be tricky.
I'm not very good at it so I'd just buy it lol!!
awesome though, lots of great material in there for beneficial bacterial growth!

Don't forget we'd love to see some more pictures of your pond, once you get all your plants, etc. in it. You already had quite a few in place in your last picture -- if memory serves me correctly, I think you were still trying to track down a water lily. It'll look even better when they all grow and fill out, etc. Things have been growing so fast over past few weeks, I'm sure it's changed already. :)

Your pond is starting to look like it has been there forever! Ponds are so relaxing! (Well - not when your setting them up - but when they are completed, they are!) :lol:

Your pond amazes me .... it's come a long way in a matter of weeks. So very attractive ...... you've gotta feel proud!
