Less Is More

DSC_0003Every year about this time we contemplate getting rid of the pond that we have loved so much. But any time something breaks or its fall, and time to cover it with mesh, we discuss it’s demise. When you are retired, you want less and less maintenance. So we began to peruse Pinterest and found a few pondless waterfalls that we liked. We called Lonnie, our pond guy and he came and drained the pond and took all our fish so they can enjoy some other pond.  We were left with a stinky, mucky hole and Rog took over from there.

He moved all the rocks out of the way to get the liners up and clean everything with a pressure washer.

So much work, but he wanted to do this by himself…so I bowed out. Notice he wears ear muffs the whole time, listening to music so he can’t hear me.

There were plants and shrubs to move, electrical wires and water lines to move and most of all the pump. Whew !

He had dirt dropped twice. But I must say , he did such a beautiful job and we love it!

Now we still enjoy the waterfall, the sound of it and all the birds enjoying their daily baths. No maintenance to speak of. Rog is pretty proud of his project and I am amazed at how beautiful it all turned out. Way to go honey. It’s wonderful! He also lit the Japanese maple and the waterfall with new covered out door receptacles. He is even talking Christmas lights.

Oh Clark 🙂

Night pics later.

And here they are….Wow, I finally got a post off.
