    Well, my friend bitjumper has an article about him In Better Homes and Gardens about a conversion he did from a plain old swimming pool to a beautiful pond. (Yeah he's the one that invited me to Germany :grumpy: )

    Anyway, what he did was truly gutsy and turned out beautifully. Here are a couple of pictures from the article. This is where his swimming pool used to be.

    I love his ponds. Does he have real koi swimming in them?

    If I made my own pond I would have to have some cattails surrounding it.:approve:

    Yes, he does.

    Oh cattails would be good. There are cattails up and down my street along the runoffs and the ponds.

    Maybe a pond that you can swim in would be better.

    We have a pool, and a pond. The pond would be good for you.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist. One of my favorite movies :rofl:

    that looks gorgeous. bitjumper was that friend you brought on here? its familiar..

    thats really awesome though. i love ponds. when i grow up... man, i'm such a little kid aren't i? but when i grow up, i want one in our yard. probably a bit bigger, and one that can freeze over in winter to ice skate on. that'd be fun!

    It's gorgeous! What a way to transform a backyard into a tranquil retreat! (Though, I'm in agreement with those who would have voted to have a pond you could still swim in.)
