By the way, the owner usually made the difference. People, if you treat the folks who are working at your house with respect, you will get a better job. Yelling at me always resulted in walking off the job and never returning.
Now on to pretty pictures.
I built this pond for a delightful couple who loved color. We put color everywhere around the pond and the rest of the yard. Both were inveterate gardeners, so they had lots of input into the color pallette.
We had a spot that demanded a peaceful feeling, so next to the pond, I placed round river rocks to make a bit of a dry stream bed. It lent a zen feeling to an already relaxed garden. Sadly the entire house was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina. The pond survived, but the owners moved to another city.
