Hello and welcome. Follow along as we build a new fish pond. The old preformed pond that you see in the banner was the first. It was too small to support fish of any size and turned into a meal ticket for the local critters (stupid racoons).





After a lot of research I combined what I liked and rejected what I didn’t. Finally decided on a semi raised pond with a gravity flow bottom drain and upflow bio-filter. This will not be a cheap, easy weekend project.

Next came the design, and planning. You have to start with some sort of plan, this will become too complicated without one.

Once the pond is completed I will replace the banner with current pictures. I will include links to venders that I dealt with and links to some good information. Eventually you will also find a detailed cost sheet. Hope you enjoy and get some benefit from my posts.
