The liner is from an abandoned waterbed in our neighbors house. We saw the edging pieces in someones driveway, stopped, Knocked, no answer, left a note on the door, THEY CALLED! we got them for free..didnt know what we were gonna do with them at the time but they are perfect (after a few cuts with a wet saw) around the pond!!!
Had the tub..long story

Hole dug..bath tub in place

3 years ago we transformed our old falling apart
cistern into a pond...turned out really cool! We should
of used some type of liner because the cement was cracked and we tried to mend it back together but it slowly still leaked.

I experimented with a wide variety of perennials (I have a lot at my house, so I didn't mind if I lost a few)I just couldn't bring myself to pay the prices the stores were asking for pond plants. A lot of hardy perennials actually do very well half submersed in water. Look for any plant's that are for bog gardens and they should also do good. We even made our own filter for the pond..."yes" to save money and it is fun being able to do your own stuff and see it it turns out or not.

Can't wait to see the final masterpiece!!! Looking good!! Posted: 3:11 pm on August 3rd
