It seems like we always have a do it yourself project going. Our latest one is a backyard pond. A couple of years ago we built an in law suite for my parents who are retired. Well my dad needs projects to keep him busy, so he and my husband are usually out in the yard doing something. The pond is still a work in progress, it needs more plants, a filter, etc. We love it though, the waterfall is so soothing.
We are going to make a biological filter for it. Hopefully with that and the plants we can clear the green up.
This is a little deck/platform to sit and have lunch to the sound of the waterfall.
Steps going up to the platform. These will eventually have plants on them.
