This is my fall '99 -- summer '00 project. It is comprised of an upper 25 gallon header pond falling two levels into a 100 gallon preformed middle pond. From there is drops to a small level stream (about 5 feet long) and finally falls into a free-formed liner pond of around 800 gallons. A 1200 gallon/hour magnetic drive pump recirculates the water back to the header pond to complete the circle.

Quite possibly, one of my favorite photos.

Parrot's Feather in the foreground with tall Dwarf Bamboo and Cattails. On the right is Forget-Me-Not with some White Flag Iris in the background.

Providing a wonderful backdrop to these aquatic plants is Nelson County stone.

Progress as of November 29,1999

The waterfall and lower pond have been rocked-in and things are starting to take shape. There is about 3.5 tons of rock shown here and it still needs more.!
