Oh, I got word from the carpenter at the Arkansas house that the sliding glass door is installed in the master bedroom. That makes the entire wall facing the ravine glass. I will be setting up the above ground pond just off the deck when we get there for good. It's gonna be a combo pond and birdbath. The critters need water and the birds love their baths. It's the greatest entertainment in the world.
Building an above ground pond is easy. I built this one pre Katrina.
Here's how it's done:
In fact, this is the pond that the article documents. Above ground ponds are more expensive than in ground ones because they use so many more rocks. But they are certainly worth it. They allow you to have a pond when you can't dig a hole for whatever the reason. This pond was under too many trees to allow digging a hole.
If you fill one end up with rocks, you have a birdbath. Easy.
