The woman who stole my website copy has removed it. In fact, she has removed the entire website. (Thanks again, Ruth.) Why on earth is my copy so valuable? It's one of dozens and dozens of sets of directions about how to build a pond that you can find online.
Mine is different because it shows how to build your pond up above the surround grade about 4". Now that's not difficult enough to steal an entire 2000 or so words about designing and building a pond. In fact, it's pretty easy.
Of course, it's one of the most important things to do when building a pond because that 4" keeps run off out of your pond. That's the chemicals from your roof, your lawn, the neighboring golf course, the nearby fields or streets that can foul your pond and kill your plants and fish.
It also keeps the liner where it belongs--on the bottom of the pond instead of floating up during heavy rains. (Not that we have many of those anymore.) But if we do, your pond water will stay put.
Oh, and building it up a bit looks fantastic as well.
Is that information really worth stealing when it's available for free on my website?
It's also in my new book, A Practical Guide to Building and Maintaining your Pond. Buy it here.
See it on my website as well. pondlady.com
